At the most elemental level, Dan McCarthy’s songwriting is captivating and simple. His ability to capture and transmit a feeling of intimacy in his songs
is mindboggling. His lyrics are weaved brilliantly around the songs’ music – a simple strum of an acoustic guitar – as the muscle and tissue are built
around a single backbone in order to lift up and sustain the body of his songs. Insightful and melodic, subdued and sparse, but equally as thoughtful
and moving, Dan McCarthy has all his own style and is not afraid to tell us who he is. He is slowly and creatively forging his own musical path.
