Check out one of my latest songs. "Oskaloosa" is about a little town in central Iowa, and maybe a few other things.
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. Late-model folk. Country string soul. Whatever you call it, you'll enjoy the mellow delivery and soulful vocals.
My second album, "Get Right", is now for sale! 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.
