Artist Biography

Dan here. I've been playing, performing and recording music since the mid-1980s. In my college daze I warmed up a couple of times for Tracy Chapman. I played solo acoustic and in a country/rockabilly two man band (with Graham Cassano, currently of Blue Pontiac) at coffeehouses and bars around the Boston area. I also sang and strummed in a couple of bands - including an uncharacteristically rowdy and punk influenced Grateful Dead cover band - in college. I spent some time in Malibu, California recording my first EP with ex-punk rockers Geza X and Paul Roessler. I write my own stuff and have an extensive catalog of singles and albums. My primary life gig is teaching history and coaching soccer at a super cool high school near Dartmouth College. I have a couple of kids - both very musical. My daughter (14) and I play and record together. We spent a week in Los Angeles recording two of her songs in December 2015. I live in Quechee, Vermont, and I am happy to drive as far as needed in order to play. In fact, in 2015 I drove 6500 miles on a solo tour. Anyway, if you ever wanted me to play a solo acoustic set at your club, bar, coffeeshop, cafe, house party, library, etc., you should give me a shout. My rates are reasonable (FREE - whatever I can get) and I bring everything set-up wise. All you have to do is provide the space, let me pass the hat, supply a glass of water and some coffee, plus an audience. Thanks for visiting. Dan

Press Release

I'm Dan Weintraub, a singer-songwriter from Vermont whose catalog perhaps
best falls into the Americana, Alt-Folk and Alt-Country genres. While the
bulk of my work and can be found on my personal websites
(http://danweintraubmusic.com and http://danweintraubacoustic.com), I have
recently uploaded my three most recent albums as playlists on Soundcloud

Here is what fans and reviewers are saying about my music:

“…Acoustic music at its best! This is where music came from. A guy or gal
on a guitar, honestly talking about his or her life. Get this guy’s music
in your collection now! I can’t wait until he comes to play in my home
town. (recent review)…”

“…Dan Weintraub is a songwriter extraordinaire. An absolute must for
acoustic music fans, it is the kind of sound and storytelling that fuse
just brilliantly, surrounding you like a wall of thought, a to-do list of
things to consider, if you will – a reflective and inspiring set of
somewhat unpredictable advice. His music has a certain magic about it that
is well worth letting into your life. (recent review)…”

“This is provocative [acoustic] music without the political baggage. It’s that
kind of electrifying intimacy that makes Dan’s music such an alluring
affair.” (recent review)

“There is a profound earnestness to Dan’s lyrics and vocal style. If I was
a person who cries, I probably would listening to some of Dan’s songs.”

“There is a powerful vulnerability in Dan’s lyrics. They have soul and get
you in the gut – great poetry, great songs.” (fan)

I hope that you will, if time and schedule permit, check out my work - and
I do appreciate your time and kind attention to my music.
