About Me

“Dan creates smart, emotive music that creeps under the skin and remains there, long after the first hearing.”

Tom Ingall, BBC

From songwriting to film scoring, from music for theatre to workshops for schools, I have nearly thirty years’ experience making music.

I’ve delivered Music for Media lectures at the University of Bradford and I’ve just finished writing the music for HUMBUG, a suite of online films, created by Wrongsemble Theatre Company.

I love drawing upon parallel passions for theatre and literature, creating music that conjures unique narratives, themes and settings.

Music & Lyrics

aka relentless eclectica

Whether it's a bittersweet acoustic ballad of stolen love, 
a creeping orchestral underscore to escape a nameless horror,
a heart-lifting pop anthem devised in a youth workshop,
or a sleaze-rock musical dredged from the Victorian underworld, a desire for strong melody and narrative lie at the core of everything I create.

I write music and lyrics to put the listener at the heart of a story, stirring emotions as vivid and compelling as possible, regardless of the style or medium.
