Over a 30 year period Dan Donovan has recorded 13 albums. Derbyshire born to a Welsh preacher, Dan moved to Fenland, England in the mid nineties where he has rooted himself indefinitely.
In the late eighties Dan was invited to record a live session at the famous BBC Maida Vale studio with his then band the grebo goth rock Tribe of Dan. Much press, radio play, international touring and an album followed but in 1992 Dan folded the outfit to pursue a more intimate genre, embracing a stripped down sound inspired by his fondness for Tom Waits and Bob Dylan.
During the following years he recorded a number of albums, acclaimed in the press.
“earthy, moody... crafted by candlelight” Kerrang KKKK
“highly atmospheric” Raw Mag
“visionary Dan the snarling moaning man” NME
“Funky, sinister and impenetrable” MOJO
“sparse with sack loads of heart”
