Songwriter Dan Duggan’s music and songs are emotional, deeply personal, and steeped in the Blues, Roots and Folk genres.
Dan’s music and songs are influenced by some of the great storytellers, and it is clear that evoking emotion through music is at the heart of Dan’s creative drive.
Dan's career to date has focused on collaboration and songwriting as a multi-instrumentalist with a number of bands, most recently working on, and releasing, his debut solo EP "Blackheart Sassafras" which saw the first single "Rock Botton" reach #1 on the JJJ unearthed charts in 2015.
Dan has recently been touring his acoustic act across the east coast, check out dandugganmusic.com or https://www.facebook.com/DanDugganMusic/ for more details.
