ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Dan Greene. Not much to look at. Pretty plain, really. Square, even. He could easily blend in with the nearest office drone, if it weren''t for that glimmer of hope in his eye. Guess what. That''s called subversion, buddy. There''s a brain behind that Cro-Magnon brow, a vision within those glossy doe eyes, and a voice that just found the key to the handcuffs of that nervous stutter. That''s how subversion works; you sneak in under the radar and KAPOW! Magic happens when no one is paying attention. When everyone pays attention, mainstream radio puts us into a coma. Sure, sleep is nice. But too much leaves you groggy and disoriented. Dan Greene wants you to wake up. And if you don''t, he''s liable to dip your hand in a glass of warm water. That''ll show you.
ABOUT THE ALBUM:
Recorded solo over five months, in the wee hours, on the weekends, in the very nooks and crannies of time itself, DAN GREENE 1 emerges without fanfare, thus without ego. The solid rock record with influences running the gamut relays a story of a single struggling romance. The first sparks of attraction lead to self-doubt and detachment, but settle in for a wistful, optimistic finale on Hennepin Avenue. All around them, layers of guitars and vocal harmonies embrace. Dan Greene wants to paddle a gondola through your ear canals.
Wait -- what does that even mean?
