live: Dan German
Dan is a proper storyteller. Raised on Bruce Springsteen, it shows. His songs have the detail and intimacy of The Felice Brothers at their finest. His strong narratives harbour a darkness akin to Townes Van Zandt. His voice is a mixture of yearning and insistent.
The thread of the rambling man runs through his work in the same way it runs through the man himself. He’s lived in London, Toronto, Amsterdam and Haarlem, and toured all over the world. Last year he opened for the great C.W Stoneking in Europe. These are traveling songs, songs about being lost, living hard, living free and dying; singer-songwriter stuff but the harder kind.
