Universally understandable, Dan Howls’ sound is a passport to anywhere in the world. Dan brings his band to South Beach Fremantle for Soul Festival.
Dan Howls is an appropriate name for an artist with such a bellowing roar. Big, gritty and acidic, it is a voice that belongs to the blues… a human being merely wields it. Tried and tested through years of live performance, Dan has finally unveiled his stunning debut album, A Dime A Dozen.
Relentlessly steaming forward like a stolen train, Mary Lou is Dan Howls at his foot-stomping best. Needing nothing more than a guitar and a tambourine around it, his voice drives a grim narrative of death and dirty deeds, accompanied beautifully by the bittersweet vocals of Julia Weller. A long-time friend and collaborator, Weller is part of Dan Howls’ road-hungry live band, which features the formidable backing of drummer Josh Cutler, bassist Callum Adcock and organist/saxophonist Ben Power.
