Dan Mangan

Postby Nick H. » Fri Jun 15, 2012 9:05 am

I imagine that by now virtually everyone in Canada knows who this is, but, just in case, Dan Mangan is an indie musician from Vancouver who has had a lot of well-deserved success in the past year or so. Yesterday I noticed he was added to the Polaris Music Prize long list; he's been one of my favorite artists for a long time and I was wondering what people here think of him. Below are links to two of my favorite songs of his.

That first song is amazing. I love the production and I love his voice. He's like a cross between Bright Eyes' delivery and Glen Hansard's tone. How did you come about this artist?

I heard his second album in a friend's car and purchased it the next day. He played last year in Fredericton to about 100 people and it is still the best concert I've ever seen. And now, if I'm not mistaken he won the Juno category for upcoming artist.

So, I've been listening to this CD in car for a few days now. It's amazing. I love everything about it.
