Dan Burnett is a world-class singer and multi-instrumental musician. It’s in his blood.
He was spoon-fed soul, blues, funk, and rock music from an early age, and began learning to play after receiving a keyboard for his 3rd birthday. With his mother’s encouragement and father’s guidance, before his teens Dan was playing gigs throughout Yorkshire in his dad’s blues band – and from then on live performance became a way of life.
Dan’s father (Laurie Burnett) was a hugely respected guitarist who, in addition to leading various blues/rock bands, toured and recorded with members of David Bowie’s ‘Spiders from Mars’ in a spin-off band called ‘U-Boat’. In his early teens, Laurie’s passion for music was helped along with guitar tuition from his good friend, the legendary Mick Ronson.
Along with an average of 150-200 gigs per year, Dan is also a library music composer for film and TV. He has co-written and recorded music which featured on ‘Stolen’ (Nicolas Cage), and ‘Supernatural’ (USA TV series), among many others. Since 2014, Dan has been an international endorser of Kawai Pianos.
