Dan Croll is a British singer-songwriter born in Newcastle-Under-Lyme, Staffordshire. He moved to Liverpool when he was 18 to attend the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA). While at LIPA, he won the national Songwriter of the Year award from the Musicians Benevolent Fund and was one of eight students picked to have a one-to-one with LIPA founder Sir Paul Mccartney. Dan is currently signed to Turn First Records.
"He's the electro boy with one foot in the world of folk, the troubadour who can handle himself quite nicely, thank you, with computers, and the indie kid who shares management with some Very Successful Artists Indeed, including Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora and Conor Maynard....Wanna Know (about an over-controlling lover) and Compliment Your Soul (about a relationship gone sour) are more eclectic, betraying a love of falsetto funk and idiosyncratic African rhythms: think Paul Simon jamming with Prince. Very nice." --Guardian UK
