My history with singer Dan Croll has been brief, but it’s packed a strong punch. I was getting tickets for a show and I got a suggestion that if I liked that band, I’d like Dan Croll. So sight unseen, I got a ticket for his upcoming April 2014 show at Bowery Ballroom in New York. I took a chance and got a ticket because that’s what I do – experience the unknown as often as possible. I decided to tweet the singer to let him know and within moments, he was interacting with me on the anti-social media networking site. I appreciated the gesture (as I can’t even begin to tell you how many artists I’ve reviewed whose tweets fall by the waste-side by said artists or their inept marketing arms), so I decided to follow Dan on Twitter. Within a week, he posted a tweet that he’d be shopping at Rough Trade in Brooklyn at a particular time and that we should all come down and say hello. I did just that and Dan was absolutely lovely to talk to in person. I’ve heard an advanced copy of his record “Sweet Disarray” and I am loving it! I’d say his music has a bit of a Paul Simon meets Two Door Cinema Club vibe happening and according 2 G, that is a great thing! I’m looking forward to the official release of the record (which is March 10, 2014 – or March 11, 2014 in the USA) and even more excited to see Dan perform these songs live. Go to Dan Croll’s official website where you can download the track “Can You Hear Me” for free, for a limited time. The link will open in a new window. Thanks again Dan and see you very soon!
