As a singer/songwriter, Dan Parsons conjures up the essence of troubadour folk-rock and classic Americana influences, exploring the triumphs and anxieties of the human experience. Evoking the sun-hazed days of Laurel Canyon combined with the cinematic shine of the iPhone generation, his rich baritone voice and deft guitar style never fail to enthrall audiences of all ages.
In August 2018 he released his new album ‘Sunday Morning Cinema’ and launched across the country on a national tour. The track ‘Dream On Lover’ landed on multiple Spotify-curated playlists around the world (Fresh Folk, New Music Friday), and the first single ‘Here Goes Nothin’ held the #1 spot on the AMRAP/AirIt regional charts for two weeks as well as receiving national rotation on ABC radio.
In February of 2109, Parsons’ was invited to showcase at the Folk Alliance International conference in Montreal, where he performed for industry and fans alike.
He has released three other critically acclaimed solo albums – ‘Firestarter’ (2010) which saw him showcase at Musexpo LA, The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City UK, ‘Dan Parsons’ (2013) and ‘Valleywood’ (2015) which was nominated for ‘Best Folk-Roots Album’ in The Age Music Victoria Awards and saw him perform in Nashville at the Bluebird Cafe.
