Dan Davidson – Featured Artist
FRIDAY AUGUST 11 & SATURDAY AUGUST 12
INSIDE THE WATERIN’ HOLE
Alberta’s newest up and coming country sensation Dan Davidson exploded onto the Canadian country scene in 2016 with the release of his second single “Found” (Co-written by Clayton Bellamy of The Road Hammers). Dan became arguably the indie story of 2016 as his single “Found” rocketed up the charts and he became the #1 charting indie artist in Canada. By June 2016, “Found” reached #22 on the charts and was the 8th highest charting Canadian song in the country. The hit single also went to #57 (so far) on the Shazam charts across all formats and hit #18 on the iTunes sales charts.
The future is bright for Davidson. Already in only 2 years of being involved in the country music scene, his name is right up there on the charts with some of the top artists in north America – and he has found a way to do it 100% indie. Dan is new to the country scene, but is far from “green” in them music industry. He spent 10 years playing in the well-known Canadian indie rock band Tupelo Honey (who had several top 40 hits, top selling iTunes records and toured with bands like Bon Jovi). On the advice of a couple long time friends (who happen to be top selling Canadian country artists), Dan decided to start focusing on his new country project.
Dan’s sound came together as he started writing and working on music with Toronto producer Jeff Dalziel (Alee, Andrew Hyatt, Autumn Hill, Brett Kissel) and the two spent the better part of a year developing an EP that’s characteristic of Dan’s love of “good time” music.“ I love country music because it’s not about being cool, it’s about feeling something. It’s about having a good time and connecting with people. Country fans love live music, and are loyal to the artists they love. You can catch Dan sharing the stage in 2016 with artists like John Pardi, The Washboard Union, Kira Isabella, Beverly Mahood, George Canyon and many more!
