About Dan Collins

Singer/Songwriter and Guitarist Pop, Rock and Alternative; Classic Hits from yesteryear Emotive, Articulate and Energetic Performer
Dan Collins's profile picture

I've been singing since I could talk, and I started playing guitar at 12. My repertoire includes pop, rock and alternative from the 60s up to the modern day. I love learning new songs and enjoy presenting a variety of material to audiences. My voice has been compared to the likes of Glen Hansard, Robert Smith and Damien Rice. I practice a number of vocal techniques that accentuate emotion and clarity; effervescent highs and robust lows. I'm excited to join Encore and find new opportunities to share my music with you!

Dan has a great voice and his rapport with the crowd is amazing! He was able to adapt his set to include requests and got the rooming singing along!
