Singer-songwriter Dan May’s career path has taken more twists and turns than a corkscrew in a hurricane. He has worked as a grave-digger, television cameraman, short-order cook, nuclear missile security guard, gas station attendant, ice cream truck driver, delivery man, amusement park worker and greenhouse laborer; all before the age of 25.
While studying music composition in college, he inadvertently stumbled upon an international opera career that forced him to leave a promising future as a songwriter behind. Cut to 15 years later, and after a vocal chord surgery that left him no longer able to meet the demands of opera, Dan returned to doing what he does best; writing and performing his own songs.
Since his crossover from classical to popular music, Dan has hit the ground running. With six critically acclaimed albums already under his belt, including his 2011 release “Dying Breed” making the Philadelphia Inquirer’s list of “Top 10 Albums” of 2011. Dan’s latest release, “Heartland” has already received stellar reviews on both coasts.
