Dan Kelly moved south to Melbourne in the late 90s, having spent an itinerant youth labouring on Queensland farms and dreaming of better days as an itinerant, 20-something musician. His reputation as a writer and singer of rare talent quietly spread through music circles on the strength of a homemade demo and ever-compelling live performances.

The Alpha Males are Aaron Cupples (guitar) , Dan Luscome (keyboards) , Lewis Boyes (bass) and Christian Strybosch (ex-Drones on drums) They are the perfect foil to Dan’s hyper-fictional, grown-up-wrong songwriting, The Alpha Males provide the rock ‘n’ roll grunt and rootsy crunch behind Dan’s yearning voice, insistently gorgeous melodies and crafted wordplay.

Dan’s first release was the EP, “Man O’ Mercy”. The debut album, “Dan Kelly & The Alpha Males Sing The Tabloid Blues” appeared in March 2004. It featured the singles “Checkout Cutie”, “Tabloid Blues”, “Step Forward” and “Summer Wino”. The album gained 3 ARIA nominations and firmly established Dan as one of the great new voices in Australian music.

His second album, “Drowning in the Fountain” of youth was released in September 2006.
