Dan Sultan certainly knows how to wind up a crowd! From the moment he steps onto stage you become drawn in by his raw and energetic live performance. Despite the vast size of the Bluesfest tent he was performing in, Dan managed to pull a large crowd of punters jostling to catch a view of his gig.
I was very thankful to see a large portion of his set from the photographers pit but was most excited when I got the chance to meet with Dan himself immediately after the set! It was a very revealing interview with us talking about a number of personal and political issues.
Overall I was impressed by Dan Sultan's down to earth personality and honesty. If you have a quick watch of the video below and you’ll see exactly what I mean…
Dan Sultan is no stranger to the Australian live music scene with his 2nd album “Get Out While You Can” ranking number one in the Australian independent music charts and receiving much well earned support from Triple J.
Currently Dan is looking to keep recording his music but also would like to incorporate the skills of other guest performers into his work. Most notably he would like to collaborate with Russell Smith a well know Melbourne based didgeridoo artist.
Aside from recording Dan Sultan’s current main focus is to embark on an around the world music tour. Currently he is touring extensively around Australia with plenty of big performances (including Splendour in the Grass) to check out!
With plans to tour Shanghai and some international festivals (confired for Womad, UK) I really hope he continues to export his music internationally. For more information about Dan Sultan be sure to check out his official website.
