When singer-songwriter Dan B. Patrick introduced himself with his debut EP 'A Steak Of Light' at the end of 2021 - a stunning showcase of his tenderly crooning vocals and intimate songcraft - he was met with immediate critical acclaim, bagging sought after premieres from Notion Magazine and Hot Press Magazine, in addition to airplay from RTÉ 2XM, BBC Radio Ulster, BBC Introducing, Soho Radio, and Amazing Radio. Dan was also placed on BBC Radio Wales' A-List twice for 'Always' and 'Embers'.
Hailing from Ireland and Wales, Dan B. Patrick focuses on the most salient aspects of the human experience, covering love, loss, mortality and hope. Using his powerful voice as an effective tool for delivering his visceral lyricism, it’s important to Dan that his lyrics stand up as their own body of work, separate from the music. Dan has been playing music from a young age, playing his first gig in Belfast at 16, having been inspired by a wealth of Irish singer-songwriters such as Hozier, Damien Rice, and Foy Vance. Upon moving to London for university, Dan spent the next few years earning his stripes on the London gigging circuit, meeting other artists such as Maisie Peters and Etaoin along the way. Dan played a sold-out headline show in London at the end of last year and has also played gigs as far afield as Austin and Los Angeles. The highlight of Dan’s young career to date was having the opportunity to sing with one of his heroes, Foy Vance, in London in 2019.
