The Dan Varner Band
Album/EP: "From Within"




Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, Dan has been singing since about the time he could walk. He grew up listening to his dad and uncles (with roots in the Tennessee mountains) picking their guitars. Other family members/friends would join in singing along to old country, gospel and bluegrass songs.

Breaking on to the Cincinnati music scene over five years ago, Dan Varner has built a reputation as one of the most talented, hard-working and original country performers to hit the area in quite some time.

At 6’4”, good humored, warm and sincere, Dan’s stage presence demands attention. Fans and industry insiders agree. Just take a look at Dan’s most recent accolades:

Proud member, as an artist, of the CMA
Opening act for the following country superstars: John Michael Montgomery, Josh Gracin, Blake Shelton, Tracy Lawrence, Craig Morgan, Little Texas, Confederate Railroad and Jason Michael Carroll
Nashville benefit performance with new, country star Taylor Swift
Nashville “In the Round” performance with two of Music Row’s top hit- makers, Tim Nichols and Chris Wallin
CEA Finalist For Best Country Band (2007,2008)
Voted #1 Original Music, Best Singer and best original Band by EV Readers Choice Awards (2007,2008)
Voted one of the top three bands in the Ohio tri-state area
Multiple, live on-air radio & TV performances within regional markets

Through 350 live performances, Dan and his band have spent the past two years sharing his songs with new fans across the region. Venues included the prestigious Gibson Showcase in Nashville, 4th Street Live in Louisville and Turfway Park. When they are home they can be found performing at local establishments in the Cincinnati area.

Dan is one of the rare finds in this industry where vocals, songwriting and stage presence come together to offer the “full package.” Combine that with a genuine love and appreciation of the country music tradition and you have a performer who can compete with Nashville’s finest.

Dan has been fortunate to surround himself with multi-talented musicians who form the core of the Dan Varner Band. These are seasoned, professional musicians with a combined 80 years experience in multiple genres including jazz, blues, country, and rock.

In 2003, Dan was offered his first, major, regional performance at Louisville’s popular 4th Street Live concert series. This performance became the first of an unprecedented five year run that culminates with Dan’s 2008 EP release, From Within, produced by Doc Smith.

Dan Varner is winning over fans nationwide with his original music and live, dynamic performances. Doc Smith, manager and CEO/President of WiseSmith Management sums Dan’s budding career up nicely:

“Dan Varner will be “THE” country music artist that will, and can fill, the shoes of the legends of yes-ter-years.”
