When you hear the name Dan Patlansky, it immediately conjures up images of the genius guitarist, singer/songwriter and globally respected purveyor of the blues that he is.
So, Durban is in for a treat when Dan launches his new album, Introvertigo, to local audiences when he performers at The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway in Umhlanga on Tuesday, November 1.
Having successfully launched his latest studio album worldwide on 6 May, Dan Patlansky is back in South Africa after performing 26 shows over the course of May and June in Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom; and in late August in Germany, Slovakia, Hungary and Denmark.
Back home, Dan will be embarking on a nationwide solo acoustic tour across South Africa making a stop for an electric/acoustic show at The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway.
He used his personal life experiences as inspiration for the album to ultimately marry good songs with guitar playing, and the album has been received with critical acclaim both in SA and abroad.
Dan recently received a nomination from the prestigious British Blues Awards for best overseas artist. This adds to his long list of accolades he has received in international press such as being voted number 4 of the best rock guitarists in the world by Total Guitar Magazine (December 2015), male artist of the year by Blues & Soul Magazine (December 2015), and top 20 rock artists by Blues Magazine (December 2015). Dan was also nominated for best international solo artist at the Planet Rock Radio ‘Rocks’ Awards in February 2016.
