“Subtle and delicate melodies” The Sunday Times
Five albums in and award-winning Black Country singer-songwriter Dan Whitehouse continues to renew, reinvent and reimagine – touching listeners with his observations and moving them with his sensitivity and impeccable songwriting.
2022 sees Dan continue to develop and evolve his offering whilst showing how he carefully nurtured his creativity during an imposed stay in Japan from January 2020 to June.
This year’s releases include The Glass Age – a collaboration with Swedish producer Gustaf Ljunggren, which looks at how our human experience and ways of connecting have changed through the ‘glass’ of virtual communication. Another, his Arts Council funded song-cycle Voices From The Cones, draws stories of community and social and industrial history from the oral archive of workers from the Stourbridge Glassworks, comes out this autumn.
“The way we feel about one another doesn’t change, but the way we communicate is sometimes forced to. As humans we strive naturally to find new ways of communicating and surviving”, says Dan.
