I got together over the weekend with Will and Johnny to make a video of "The Irish Goodbye" and some others. This is the version I sent in to NPR today, so let's hope it gets us some attention!
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 2014 album, "Simply Dan String Band", features nine songs I wrote and performed for the recording. Folks adding their talent to the album include James Funk, Pat Kennedy, Hank Becker, Jeremy Pittman, Suzanna Barnes, Johnny Castetter, Rob McAllister, Jeff Roades, Aaron Hedrick, Jeremy Francis, and Sleepy Andy Tracy. I have written lots of songs since then, so expect another album to be in the works before too long!
