Portrait of Dan Whigham
Visit Dan on AmieStreet.com and MySpace

Dan is from Southeast Alabama and has lived there most of his life. Music was a part of his life early on, and there are recordings of him performing as early as four years of age. Dan started writing music when he became a teenager and has written hundreds of songs over the years. It wasn't until the onset of the "digital age" that Dan has made his music available to the public

Dan grew up listening to classic country music and gospel, and as he grew older discovered other styles and genres. An early influence was the music of artists like Prince, The Police, and Phil Collins (a true child of the 80's). The influence of the pop sensibilities of these artists can be heard in Dan's songs, as well as a strong dose of experimentation in mixing different styles

As Dan grew older and began writing, he continued to discover new artists and develop his recording techniques. Dan discovered such diverse artists as Elvis Costello, Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads, Lindsey Buckingham, and Pink Floyd. All of these became a part of Dan's stylistic vocabulary, and the language they speak can be heard in the music

With the onset of the digital age, and the advent of using the PC as a recording and mixing tool, Dan began to experiment with hip-hop drum loops. He mixed these drum loops with guitar and keyboard, as well as other drum programs. When all this is swirled together with Dan's melodic writings, you get an end result that is most pleasing

Dan is currently performing in the Southeast as a member of the country band Shane Owens & 231 South.

Dan's first official album LOVE & LOSS was recorded in 2002. A new album was release in the spring of 2004 entitled MIND OVER MATTER
