    Such a great artist, love his voice and writing style. :) Can't wait to see what the new album sounds like, the Radical EP and Flaws were pretty awesome already.

    I'm wondering why I didn't discover him sooner.

    From now on, I'll strive to be about as helpful as I can be without being any help at all.

    Just saw him live last night and it was an absolutely amazing show. Dan ended up going into the middle of the crowd and enacted a makeshift choir while singing as the finale. He also hung around talking to everyone after the show. Overall amazing show couple with a really friendly down to earth performer. P.s he signed my t-shirt it was awesome. This was also his first show on his Australia tour (Melbourne) if anyone from Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide or Perth are free in the next couple of nights go check out the show.

    I literally can't decide which album or song I like the best. One of the best song writers around
