Gigs On Govetts – Fusion Boutique presents Dan Challis

Fri 17 Dec 2021
1st Set starts 8pm
South-Coast singer/songwriter Dan Challis melds lyrically-driven acoustic folk music, with a story-telling focus. His songs centre on the lived-experience, and befit his troubadour ethos; living out the very life he tells stories about through his music.

Dan has captivated audiences both here and in North America, where he spent the last 4 years up until 2020. It was there he penned the songs for his most recent body of work, ‘No Lonely Road’ (2020); his sophomore album. The music has been described as “rich, authentic acoustic folk… (that) should make you feel something raw and timeless.”

Challis speaks of the impetus behind the making of ‘No Lonely Road’; “The album represents a short but significant chapter of my journey as a songwriter. Being in North America for 4 years changed me as a person and I wanted the songs to reflect that. I look back on that time and how I captured those moments in this body of work; and how it all had such a profound impact on my life. I wouldn’t have been able to write this album without those experiences.”

Dan is based full time in Australia now, and follows the classic model of ‘stomping the pavement’ when it comes to getting his music out there; being known for his willingness to tour, especially in regional areas, and bring his love for his craft direct to the people; no matter what the venue, pub, club or local RSL. This year alone he played over 36 shows on a two-month long tour of NSW and south-east QLD, to promote the release of his latest album.

A night of acoustic folk music, by a songwriter who cares deeply about their craft.
