Welcome to the official home page for Dan Van Vechten and my music projects! I am a local singer/songwriter who grew up listening to folk and country music, then returned to it to find my sound after being influenced by the folk music I heard when I moved to Cincinnati. Call it folkpop. Urban bluesfolk. Countrified string soul. Whatever you call it, you'll enjoy the mellow delivery and soulful vocals.
My second album, "Get Right", is available for sale on September 2, 2016. The LP is a collection of some of my newer songs, a few that go back to the Van Buckley era, and two tributes to local songwriters. Most tracks feature myself on guitar and vocals; Will Kimble, mandolin and vocals; Johnny Castetter, bass and vocals. Featured guests include Heather Buckley Pauley on vocals; Hank Becker, banjo; Jeremy Francis, resonator guitar; Aaron Hedrick, harmonica; Joe Macheret, fiddle; Rob McAllister, guitar.
