Dan’s latest solo project is Crossover, a five-track international collaboration recorded with some of the finest talent in North America. The EP includes entirely original songs, several of which were co-written with family, and Dan on guitar and vocals.

Crossover has that earthy gritty gospel feel of funky country blues.
