“Obsessed. I am Obsessed.” -Jennifer Lyneis President of UE3 Promotions
“Musically, I’m in love. His light, accessible, passionate sound is one that had me hitting the repeat button on one song for almost an hour.” -Rebecca Cicione A & R Columbia Records
“The rising star creates an intimate environment through his music.” -Diana Bonilla of the LA Examiner
Shynes has the rare ability to blend shades of multiple genres over an acoustic landscape, and his songs possess a lyrical depth rarely paired with such universal appeal. This is a songwriter to watch in the years to come. Vastly emerging from humble beginnings in a small central Minnesota town, Shynes has toured with Platinum recording artist Howie Day, as well as opening up for countless National acts. “The thing that seems to separate Shynes from other performers in his field is unquestionably his voice. With a range and falsetto that is nothing short of captivating, his acoustic finger picking style acts as the perfect bed of warmth on which his soulful lyrics can rest.
Hi, I’m Dan. I’m a whiskey & beer drinking, fishing & hunting loving, motorcycle riding, quality food eating, hippie sympathizing, people loving, husband & father who lives in Minneapolis and shares a life with my amazing wife and adorable son. I grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, MI, and moved to Minneapolis when I was 18 to study music, and I stayed because I’m one of those crazy people that enjoys the snow and cold weather. Music is my trade & performing it for people is my passion. When I’m not in my studio writing songs and cutting records, or on the road playing shows, I’m usually tending to our backyard chickens, eating fresh veggies from my wife’s huge garden, or out doing one of my many outdoor hobbies.
Now here are a few things about my music career that I should probably share in a music bio:
In September 2014 Budweiser released their “Friends Are Waiting” commercial campaign featuring me singing my song When You Come Home.
The Summer of 2015 marked the release of my fourth, and most prolific and widely distributed album, Come On Home, featuring the Budweiser song When You Come Home and singles Rum River and California.
Over the years I’ve had the honor of sharing the stage with some really cool artists & bands including The Civil Wars, Andy Grammer, Eric Hutchinson, NeedtoBreathe, Augustana, Tyrone Wells, Haley Reinhart, John McLaughlin, Will Hoge, and more.
In June, 2017, I´ll be releasing my newest album 25 Years. One of my favorite producers, John Fields, produced it and I couldn’t be more excited for you to hear it.
“I’ve been in this business a long time. I recognize when somebody has something real. Dan is a true talent, and seems to be ushering in a new wave of singer/songwriters around the Twin Cities. I can honestly say I’m excited for the world to hear what he’s got to offer.” – Michael Bland
