The Dan Sheehan Conspiracy
Kenmare, County Kerry
Dan Sheehan is an Irish rocker who has been making waves on both sides of the Atlantic as his band The Dan Sheehan Conspiracy spend 2013 touring Ireland, the UK, and America while songs from their sophomore album Are You Conspirienced? have been hitting the airwaves of Europe, North and South America, Africa and Australasia.
The 2013 tour has found Sheehan and company headlining as well as providing support for legendary acts ranging from grunge queen Courtney Love and American alt rockers the Meat Puppets, to Celtic folk legends Kíla. Conspirienced? presents a band unafraid of harnessing the passion that made rock music a force to be reckoned with during its most potent eras. Fueling Sheehan’s soul baring lyrics are a band equally capable of painting musical textures as they are flexing their rock muscles to present a collection which covers a wide range of musical emotions and dynamics.
Are You Conspirienced? roars with unbridled force on rockers such as the angstful “I’ll See You There” and the Southern rock-tinged “The Ever Pleasant Notion,” alt rockers “Eleventh Hour” and “Have a Nice Summer,” the poetic “Forevermore” and the organ-laden “Dark Summer” and “Tu Mochila Esta Abierta” (keys courtesy the legendary Patrick Moraz of Yes/Moody Blues/Refugee/Mainhorse/solo fame.)
A listen to Conspirienced? gives any fan of classic or modern rock insight as to the DSC’s multi-faceted approach to making a rock album and a sense of the band’s intense dedication to quality in songwriting, arranging and performance. Conspirienced? lays a solid foundation for many more fine things to come the DSC’s way in 2013 as Dan and company rock venues and festivals throughout Britain, Ireland, and the United States.

Dan Sheehan manages to do what so few have accomplished in recent years -- present a new and compelling vision of rock... How refreshing to hear an artist so full of imagination with the guts (and musical chops) to tell it like it is.

I gotta play you somebody I’m very, very, very excited about... The Dan Sheehan Conspiracy... He’s rock, he’s alternative, he’s singer-songwriter, he’s hip hop, he’s rap, he’s indie, he is FAN-tastic!

This is a future classic... Absolutely brilliant album of modern sounding rock...

We love the way this disc flows and think that Dan has simply outdone himself. Conspiracy? We don’t know about that, but we do know that it is darn good tunes–and that’s what matters the most!

The "Dan Sheehan Conspiracy" took the stage aroud 9:15pm. I had heard this band on CD but it was a first hearing them live. Not only did they put on a great set of original music but proved to be a real tight band, with unique melodies and even more unique lyrics.
- Andrew Sulloew, Power of Music Productions, Bayside, NY
Come in walking, leave looking for rails to help you stand... trying to come up with categories for music hardly matters when it's all good. Just don't try explaining it to the folks at work the next day.
