Gothic/Romantic poetry themed singer/songwriter duo with acoustic guitar and violin that will give you a sense of aural theater and spark the imagination lyrically!
Raised in Europe and leaning heavily on British hard rock influences and American folk songwriters Dan Lavorel fashioned his sound out of that dichotomy and give him his unique approach to songwriting.
Returning to the U.S in the 90's, Dan would found the Gothic rock outfit "Masque" and pay some serious dues in the bars and clubs from Texas to California. Releasing 2 independent albums, Masque would see a series of lineups before eventually folding in 2003. During their run they would experience some near euphoric evenings and help to earn themselves the epithet of the "Deserts undisputed kings of gothic rock", playing with such acts as Cleopatra Records "The Wake" and RCA Records "The Strawberry Zots". Finally relocating to the Bay area in 2001 the band disbanded  in 2003.
Being the front man, singer, and songwriter for the group, Dan continued  making solo music in various lineups and outfits before teaming up with Gail Rorick in the 2010's to do various studio recordings. Gail Rorick who some years before was the lead violinist for the Bay area band "Phils Harmonic Orchestra rounds out the sound giving Haunted Summer a unique vibe. Settling on the name and working with various percussionists and drummers in 2018 the duo is recording a self titled full length album due out by Spring 2019..
