Songwriting Achievements:
As a musical artist, Dan strives to make each piece different so that it lives in its own conceptual world, situated with its own unique colors, textures, and words that altogether bring the music to life. The same is true for the songs found in “Soliloquy”; it is completely self-produced, recorded, and mixed in his home (with the exception of the drums). It explores reflection, ambition, retreat, optimism, and the constant pressure on the nerves to capture a moment of inspiration. As a debut, it represents Dan’s first foray into sharing the thoughts and sounds in his head out there into the world.
