Music is the heartbeat of life. When your heart beats with mine, whether it's with wild abandon or quiet contemplation, we are truly "brothers." - Brother Dan
Lifelong musician Brother Dan Palmer started studying classical guitar at the age of six, and began performing at the age of eight. He has a repertoire of over 1,000 cover songs from virtually all genres, and has played in virtually every venue imaginable, from passing the hat on the streets of San Francisco to dinner houses, bars, nightclubs, casinos, and has a lot of concert experience, having opened for and/or played with: Men at Work, Three Dog Night, Foghat, The Tubes, The Grass Roots, Canned Heat, Humble Pie, Black Oak Arkansas, John Nemeth, War, David Lindley, Donovan, Bob Weir, and more . . .
Brother Dan is best classified as an upbeat, observant singing songwriter specializing in Modern Americana music. Often compared to artists as diverse as John Mayer, Maroon 5, James Taylor, David Wilcox, Dan Fogelberg, Todd Snider, Dave Mason, and Harry Chapin.
Brother Dan's main focus now is his original music, and he draws from his extensive experience to craft well-written songs that have universal appeal. His obvious love of various styles of music translates into hybrid combinations which are interesting and unique, and yet comfortingly familiar, which serve as an excellent vehicle for his at times intense and highly personal lyrics. Brother Dan's first full-length all-original cd was released in the late summer of 2007, and the release of his next EP is scheduled for early April, 2009.
Brother Dan plays constantly and tours frequently. Recent tour stops have included Germany, England, Scotland, Florida, California, Arizona, Utah, and more. Tours planned for 2009 will include all of the previous, plus stops in Colorado, Oregon, New York, Belgium, and Slovenia.
