What's Dan Doing Now?

  • BIG NEWS! My new track, "Leaving Cygnus" is out now! It is an ambient track very much in the style of my experiments on Pastoral Memory, so if you enjoyed that album, you will probably enjoy this new piece too. Listen and purchase by clicking on the Bandcamp player to your right. If you are a Spotify listener, stream the track HERE. "Leaving Cygnus" is also available on Apple Music, YouTube, and all streaming platforms. Thanks for checking it out!

  • I've been extremely fortunate that New Jersey opened up outdoor dining in June, and my trio, Acoustic NRG, has been working steadily since then. Our governor has announced limited indoor dining this fall and winter, so hopefully we can keep working. In times of uncertainty, music keeps me optimistic and moving forward.

  • It looks like I'll be teaching two courses remotely at County College of Morris in the fall. Again, I feel extremely fortunate to be able to teach what I love, especially during this topsy-turvy period of time.

    Let's all try to stay positive! Everything's going to be alright!
