Emboldened by the audience feedback during the lockdown livestreams I was doing on instagram and facebook from a corner of my lounge, I just launched a PATREON COMMUNITY page.

There are three tiers of support and they all include the livestream interaction twice a month, so hopefully a choice of something for everyone who might be interested in a closer connection. I am very grateful to anyone who feels compelled to join the hardy pioneer spirits who have already signed up ahead of the first Patrons Exclusive Livestream on Sunday 22nd November.

In the absence of being in a sweaty room singing along with each other just now, I am still able to reach out from a corner of the living room and hopefully sometimes make a tiny difference from afar.

For that I am thankful. Dan

Now available – A “Pay What You Feel” digital release of a great WH band set captured for posterity in Newcastle a few years ago. Available HERE. It captures the kind of celebratory, intimate live music experience many of us are missing during lockdown. Until those happy times together again, I hope this recording raises a spirit or two, at the very least a smile or a fond memory. Thankyou as ever to the band (who were in great spirits that night) and to everyone around the world who has downloaded/donated already. Stay safe, stay in the love and be gentle on yourself, wishing you each freedom from fear and anxiety. D

To mark TEN YEARS since the initial release of my debut album “Good News”, three special hometown shows are being staged in November 2019. Each of these shows will be recorded. Wednesday night will be a full band rendition of “Good News” in it’s entirety, featuring the band and additional musicians. Thursday night will be a similar treatment, but of second album “New Gods”. Friday night will be a selection of NEW SONGS, rarities, EP tracks and the like. There is also a joint ticket aimed at people who want to come and celebrate with us at all three shows. Ticket links are over on the SHOWS page of the website.

SongwritersTour_A3-SQUARE-IMAGE-1 On tour in October with James Yorkston and Kris Drever. At these shows we will be onstage together throughout, trading and reworking songs, chatting and generally creating some relaxed and diverting evenings of music in a town near you. James and Kris are both recognised as excellent songwriters and musicians and it’s a real pleasure to be heading out on the road in such good company. Dates and ticket links are listed HERE

Delighted to announce for this year’s Festival show I have been invited to headline a MADE IN SCOTLAND showcase at Summerhall with the band.

Double delighted to announce for this show we will be collaborating with the superb string section of the Rogue Orchestra for part of the set, so it really should be one to remember.

This show will be the only Festival outing for the WH Band and is on the 19th August this year.
