2011 was a big year for Indie Pop singer-songwriter Dan Acfield. It was the year that saw the release of his debut solo EP 'Thick Skin' and when he received national exposure as Rage's 'Indie Artist of the Week'. 2011 was also a year for straying far from home as the Brisbane based songwriter successfully toured Australia and the United Kingdom. All of this in his first year as a solo artist! Dan is now riding this momentum right into what is set to be a bigger and better 2012.
An impulsive traveller and compulsive singer, Dan accepted his troubadour destiny at an early age. Even before he was old enough to speak, Dan had managed to amuse his parents with irrepressible car karaoke, and in a TV-free home environment, he took up song writing at the early age of 9.
Following in the footsteps of musical ancestors (ranging from a New York hymn-writing orchestral musician, to a grandfather who played bass for everyone from Cat Stevens to Kamahl), Dan attended music school. Armed with a healthy combination of both respect and scepticism, Dan transitioned from his studies into the Brisbane music scene confidently, and in 2008 emerged as an enthusiastic champion of pop-rock anthems as the front-man and songwriter for the band 'Dear April'.
