‘’My songs are a journal of how I feel, and I have no problem explaining my lyrics to people. It annoys me when people say that music is travelling in the wrong direction; how can it be when there are still singer/songwriters out there writing music that they love; music isn’t something in the charts that only clubs play, it’s something that we all have and we all love.’’ says Dan. Whether its lyrics describing his hatred for 20th century pop culture in fashion and strange hipster movements, Dan’s lyrics are sure to relate to anyone putting a very definable feel to all his songs
