Dan Britton @ Joules Yard 2016

Dan Britton is a dynamic singer-songwriter with an amazing power in live performance.

He blends US West Coast, hints of Celtic and country, roots and rock into his own unique style. Go and see Dan perform solo, with his band, in duo with Chris Conway or with the traditional Irish band Govannen, you'll come out a fan.

He has played guitar for Jackie Leven, Bob Cheevers and Cathy Lesurf ('The best guitarist I've worked with since Simon Nicol.') He has released several nationally acclaimed albums. Dan supplied the lead vocals on the debut Katy Lied album which was produced by Nigel Stonier and featured Thea Gilmore and Al Perkins amongst other musical luminaries.

A passionate performer, his powerful voice and stage presence immediately attracts attention.

Dan Update -
Chris Conway & Dan Britton Safe Harbour

Studio album by singer songwriters & multi-instrumentalists Chris Conway & Dan Britton - their first duo studio album in 15 years!

Despite being very busy with Celtic band Govannen, Chris & Dan had never stopped playing concerts of their own songs in a duo, often augmented by Neil Rabjohn's percussion. But they never had the time to go back to the studio.

Sometime around the start of 2016, Dan had recorded a couple of songs with Chris about his family history which were put out on Youtube. Then they started to really enjoy the duo concerts. Somewhere along the line they decided to write some news songs, combine them with songs from their solo albums that were firm favourites in their live set, and record them. This they did here and there throughout 2016, with Chris adding more to the ones Dan had originally recorded. Then suddenly it was done.

Aug 13th - Chris Conway & Dan Britton - The Noels Arms, Melton Mowbray, Leics.
A rare gig by the dynamic duo! Dan and CC have played together for over 20 years and the set doesn't change much, but we're so busy with Govannen we rarely get the chance to do our songs set and the songs always come out different. Neil Rabjoh joined us as usual on percussion and we had a great listening crowd and had a great time, playing and chatting between sets which veered from politics to Muppets...

Set 1 - Carousel/Long Time Gone, Song For Eric, Lifespell, Wish.

Set 2 - Matty Groves, Call Of The Wild, Return Of Crazy Horse, Train Of Thought, Deja Blues, Snow And The Fire - encore - The Alien Jellyfish Song.


May 25th - Joules Yard Festival - gig report -
We hadn't played a full 2 set duo songs gig together for a year maybe.
Govannen keeps us busy so our own songs set duo has been quiet lately. Neil Rabjohn joined us on cajon and he tried out some added percussion and cymbal for the first time which was cool.
It felt good slotting into these old songs again - all the arrangements just come back from that hidden part of the brain that keeps this stuff. We've been playing together for over 22 years and some of our songs go that far back too so it taps into our past.
The crowd was different to our Govannen Joules Yard - a little quieter and more concert-like. Got a little chillier later on but it was special to do this again.

Set 1 - Carousel, Long Time Gone, Song For Eric, Call Of The Wild, Return Of Crazy Horse, Ten Years, Matty Groves

Set 2 - Deja Blues, When Will We Be Married?, Lifespell, Wish, Train Of Thought, Snow And The Fire - encore ; The Alien Jellyfish Song.

Leicester Mercury - 03 May 2007

BRITTON DRAWS ON AMERICAN INSPIRATION
Dan Britton “Turn the Stars Upside Down” (Musician 2007)

Dan Britton's first trip to the United States has given him plenty of inspiration for his new album.The Leicester singer-songwriter visited Nashville and Memphis, as well as pursuing his interest in the history of native American Indians. Two songs - The Return of Crazy Horse and Leonard (about Leonard Peltier, a Native American activist) have made it on to the album, Turn the Stars Upside Down, which is out now on Leicester label Musician Records.

Britton told The Week: "I had got other songs about their situation which didn't make it on to the album, so I guess the trip did influence me."Also, as you get older you move away from writing love songs to other stuff which you read that interests you. "That's how I heard about Leonard Peltier. There is a big campaign in the USA to free him after claims he was wrongly jailed for the murder of two FBI agents. In fact, Peltier's defence committee are putting together a compilation album to promote the cause and it looks like my song might appear on it."

Britton has not totally shied away from songs of love and longing. Two of the songs on the album, Can't Get Over You and Just Can't See Anyway (To Be With You) are cases in point, but he admits: "I'm a happily married man so I don't have those kind of issues anymore but I still like to write about them."

The album, co-produced in the city with Neil Segrott, is Britton's starkest record to date. "I usually use Chris Conway on keys but I've made a conscious decision to strip it down to a Neil Young 1970s sound, and I'm really pleased with the outcome," he said."The album's getting some decent reviews and, as well as the City Blues Festival at De Montfort Hall this weekend, I've got a lot of other stuff coming up including a double bill with (Nashville storyteller) Bob Cheevers at the Edinburgh Fringe."

Americana UK
Heavy and heartfelt set of songs reminiscent of The Waterboys at their finest

“We need leaders/Not self-serving fools/Hanging out with rock stars/To make them look cool.” So begins the apocalyptic opener “The Return Of Crazy Horse” on Leicester music scene stalwart Dan Britton’s latest album. As warning calls of impending doom go it’s one of the best, as Britton spits venom and righteous anger over a huge and heavy sound that’s reminiscent of The Waterboys at their finest. Things don’t lighten up much with the next track, a cover of Gillian Welch’s “One Morning” which is much louder, more doom-laden and urgent than her take. A quieter moment follows though with “Song for Eric”, a thoughtful and heartfelt piece dedicated to Britton’s friend, the late great Eric Roche, but normal service is resumed with “Just Can’t See Any Way (To Be With You)” and the title song, before slowing down once more for the remaining four tracks. The album is shot through with Native American imagery, but, it’s important to say, not in a laughable Ian Astbury style. From the cover art via lines “carve my face in the sacred rock” to songs like “Leonard” (dedicated to the legendary Leonard Peltier) there’s a real sensitivity and empathy with that oft-overused and abused culture. The album’s one jarring note is the final hidden track, a lads having fun in the studio song that’s entertaining enough but rather detracts from the overall feel and power of what’s gone before. But that’s really the only downside on what is an excellent album that deserves to have Britton’s name mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Mike Scott.

Journey to Love CD 7/10
Superior British singer-songwriter fare. Dan Britton is yet another performer from the seemingly inexhaustible supply of excellent singer-songwriters coming out of Leicester at the moment. “Journey to Love” is his second album and a fine thing it is too. Beautifully produced, the album features great keyboards from Chris Conway as well as good work from the remainder of the four piece band. But its Britton’s acoustic work and vocals that are at the heart of the music and the forefront of the mix, and mighty things they are.
He’s an admirer of The Waterboys, and there’s more than a hint of Mike Scott in his lyrics and vocals – he has the same soul. In fact if you ignore its origin “Journey To Love” could easily be described as Celtic Soul. While there are some propulsive rockers like opener “These Days” and “I Wanna Go Home”, the bulk of the songs are more contemplative pieces like “It’s Over” and “Through Your Eyes”. Occasionally his lyrics can seem a trifle obvious, for example on the title track, but it doesn’t happen often and when it does but his performance and intensity carry him through.
The best things here are a pair of tracks about starting and finishing relationships. The aforementioned “It’s Over”, a nakedly honest assessment of a ended relationship comes first, and is immediately followed by “Beautiful Face”, where Britton’s emotional delivery is at it’s best and married to a perfectly judged delicate yet intense backing from the band. I suspect that good as this album is, Britton is at his best live, and so, while I can recommend this album wholeheartedly I would recommend more seeking out one of his infrequent gigs

Dan Britton - Journey To Love CD
****
The good things in life often require perseverance. The full charms of Mr Britton's new CD didn't hit me immediately but, after listening to 'Journey To Love' for the better part of a week, the songs are now leaving an indelible mark on me.

Based in Leicester, Dan is an excellent musician and superior singer-songwriter. This second solo outing is a huge artistic leap forward from his debut CD. The eleven self-penned songs are meticulously crafted and performed with verve by Dan and the four-piece band. The production is crisp, the songs thoughtfully arranged. At the heart of these tunes is Dan's rhythmic acoustic guitar playing while the band adds colour without overpowering him.


The propulsive 'These Days' is a strong, catchy opening number with fiery guitar playing and subtle organ colouring. Neil Segrott, a wonderful bass player, provides the explosive guitar solo. 'Through Your Eyes' is a more reflective ballad with atmospheric electric piano from Chris Conway.

'I Wanna Go Home', with it's distinctive guitar riff, is a powerful rocker with a melody not dissimilar to Gene Clark's 'No Other'. By contrast, the pace is brought down for the acoustic 'It's Over', a reflective ballad about loss. 'You can trash the place, or smash my face but still you can't hide the fact that it's over'.

Song-writers are influenced by artists they admire, Dan Britton is no different. For 'Beautiful Face' he plays a Gibson Dove, once owned by Gram Parsons, and kindly loaned to him by Jenny Grech the widow of Gram's pal Rik. It is a beautiful song with a catchy chorus and layered ooohs. The addition of banjo adds an authentic charm.

The theme of lost love rears it's head again in 'The Field Road', a surging rocker. By contrast 'Gone #2' mines folk territory with its lone banjo. The attractive 'One Thing Still Remains' ends this fine set of songs.

Beautifully packaged, this thought provoking CD deserves to garner Dan Britton a wider audience. Worth repeated listens.
