ONE TO WATCH! CAITLYN SHADBOLT TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ‘SONGS ON MY SLEEVE’ OUT MAY 26th
In a few short years, Dan Mangan has gone from globetrotting folk crooner to one of music’s most promising storytellers.
From playing elbow room only west coast Canadian clubs to headlining theatres in major cities across the western world, Dan’s journey has seen him go from someone whose name you see written on a gig flyer to someone whose name you overhear on the street.
His critically acclaimed sophomore album Nice, Nice Very Nice, earned him a Polaris Music Prize shortlist, a spot at Glastonbury two years running, sold out shows the world over and accolades galore. Dan now returns with Oh Fortune.
Produced by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Cave Singers) and now flanked with a stellar supporting cast, Dan’s rich and textured new album finds him further exploring folk music’s boundaries.
With ambitious arrangements made on a ever widening canvas yet coupled with the knowledge of when to lay the brush down and infused with the signature wit and wisdom that have made Dan such a fan favourite wherever he goes, Oh Fortune makes good on the promise of every song he has ever sung.
To be sure, this release marks the arrival of a new voice, with world class charm and a universal appeal. Oh fortune, indeed.
The first single from the album is “Post War Blues” is at radio now.
‘Oh Fortune’ is released September 30 through ABC/Universal
