Dan Leigh is a versatile musician and songwriter with a growing resume. He has recorded an LP and 2 EP's with Grammy-winning producer Scott Mathews. His music has been used on national television and in numerous indie films. Dan has been compared to Radiohead and Coldplay.
Dan Leigh's career began when multi-platinum producer/musican Scott Mathews offered to produce his first album. Dan then recorded and released his debut album "The Shortest Life" in 2004. Equal parts textured and melodic, the album has gradually found many fans, including indie filmmakers and music supervisors. Dan's songs tend to follow conventional song structure but have unconventional instrumentation. It's not unusual to find an African thumb piano or a squeezebox on one of Dan's tracks. Although, he makes use of conventional instruments, you may hear Hammond organs and synthesizers as well as various electric and acoustic guitars. Dan has branched out somewhat, recording production music in addition to his singer/songwriter material.
