Dan Dyer was named one of the top 10 local albums of 2008 by both the Austin American Statesman and The Austin Chronicle.
Dyer’s voice and live performance intensity are raw and hot, yet soulful and sensitive, drawing from a wealth of classic soul, blues, folk, and R&B legends. The audience is treated to a special brand of commotion as Dyer switches from piano to guitar, sometimes performing with a boyish grin, and other times with a perspiring concentration. Whether in an acoustic listening room playing to an intimate audience, or in front of thousands at a music festival, Dyer’s onstage magnetism continues to draw in fans from all walks of life.
