DAN HANNAFORD @ DECK ACOUSTICS
“Rarely do you find anyone who builds from the dust and grit of real life, songs of such power and poignancy – Dan Hannaford is one who does, a true talent, make no mistake” – Samuel J Fell (Rhythms Magazine)
“A rock-solid slab of dusty country and ragged-edged blues, as honest as the day is long, twice as real and raw” – Sydney Morning Herald 2015
Dan Hannaford has opened Australian tour shows for the likes of Grammy award winning bluesman Charlie Musselwhite, Tex Perkins, Ash Grunwald and Grinspoon. He is busy gracing hundreds of stages around Australia including showcasing his talent at Byron Bay Bluesfest, Falls Festival, National Folk Festival, Gympie Muster and recently his first overseas festival Summertime Blues in Austria. Following the success of his debut album“I Cried Bullets” Dan is currently working on his follow up record again in Los Angeles. This record is tinged with a who’s who of seasoned session players, some who have played and recorded with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Keith Richards, Steve Earle, Willie Nelson to name but a few. Not bad for Byron Bay’s local lad his country-tinged, blues-laced, rock ‘n’ roll is the likes of which are few and far between in Australia’s current scene.
