Dan Webb (born 13 August 1989), is an Australian musician, singer, songwriter and record producer.

Career[edit]

Early in his career, Webb garnered much attention for his energetic and partly improvised live shows.[1] One of Webb's most notable stage antics at the time involved him playing his keyboard behind his back, in a style similar to Jimi Hendrix.[2] He has collaborated with a number of artists over the years, including Kylie Auldist, Bobby Flynn, actress Ashleigh Cummings[3] and the horn sections of The Cat Empire and The Black Seeds.

In 2011 he played five shows in a UK tour, played two sets at St Kilda Festival and supported Conway Savage. He headlined a tour of New Zealand in 2012[2] and performed at Newtown Festival in Wellington. Webb released demos of twelve original songs for free download, one a month, from his official website in 2013. These songs were later developed and released on his 2014 studio album Sandstorm. The first demo to be released, "Departure" featured Auldist on co-vocals[4] and debuted on The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show on BBC Radio 6 Music on 26 January 2013.[5] Webb played seven shows in January and February 2013 on his most extensive Australian tour to date, before announcing an extended leave from live music performance.[6][7]

His 2017 album Oedipus The King was recorded in the lead up to the 2016 US election and released on the same day as Donald Trump's Inauguration.[8]
