Quirky indie - pop, electro-folk - been keeping an eye on this chap for a little while and glad to see he's made it to Brighton… I'm pretty sure you'll recognise some of his songs from radio , TV or games. He's been making waves in 2013 so recon he's worth checking out live….

Blurb:Dan Croll is a new solo artist with enough facets for a whole band. He’s the electro boy with links to the folk scene (Communion Records discovered him and included one of his tracks on their recent New Faces compilation), a multi-instrumentalist whose songwriting prowess has impressed everyone from former Beatles to legends in the world of fashion and design. He started 2012 with one of his demos (Marion) as a Q Essential Download and another (Home) picked up by Steve Lamacq on 6 Music and ended it with his debut single From Nowhere being hammered by Radio 1. Don’t be fooled by the Buddy Holly specs – he’s a one-time rugby fanatic whose career in sport at the highest level was derailed by a broken leg – or by the sensitive acoustica: the 23-year-old is a former nightclub doorman who used to live above a strip joint in Liverpool.
