New single released – Virtuality

Dan has just released Virtuality, a new single from his upcoming EP, Edgyometry. This is a song about compromises to humanity posed by trendy technology. Also produced by Scott Mathews, Virtuality features Dan on lead and rhythm guitarist, trumpet, and vocals. Scott plays drums, bass, organ, and a mean slide guitar lick in the bridge. Listen carefully to the end of the song. You’ll hear an ambulance in the background. That isn’t some weird sound effect. A very loud ambulance was really passing by the studio during the drum take.

Listen here to the whole song, which will be here for a week. Also, stream it on Spotify or download it at CD Baby.

Are losing your connection to reality today?

Are the Joneses that you kept up with now moving far away?

That endless cyber highway has really messed your mind.

Choking you with choices that the cavemen left behind.


Well it’s so hard to be in the know all the time.

Your image takes you over and messes up your mind.

Oh it’s so hard to say — return to Earth again.


Are you losing your direction in Virtuality?

Has your vain and fickle nature finally brought you to your knees?

Pledging service to the server sounded great until you tried

To keep your fragile self from getting swept up by the tide.


Mr. Hypemeister man, chasing gadgets in the rain.

Tell me, what’s the chance you will catch them all again?

Mr. cool cyber man with your pipeline to the wind,

Blowing out your candle to do it all again


Make all your appliances dumb again today

You don’t need a processor to tell you what to say

Maybe then you’ll find a way to humanity

Knocking down the altar of smart technology.


Well it’s so hard to be in the know all the time

Your image takes you over and messes up your mind

Oh it’s so hard to say — return to Earth again

Blowing out your candle until the bitter end

Dan’s upcoming EP “Edgyometry”

Stay tuned on this site for the release of Dan’s new EP, Edgyometry, produced by Scott Mathews. You could say that each song is a little about insanity. Refuge of Eternal Silence, the first single, is about the dark, troubled side of insanity. The music is grandiose and melodic, but also edgy, brooding, and melancholy. Dancing With the Clowns is kind of how you’d imagine a good trip. The music is bouncy. happy, upbeat. Virtuality is about the insanity that has to some to so many with our obsession with social media and technology. Silver Moon, a ballad with a wide open spaces feel, is about ghosts and haunted houses. Too bad Halloween just passed!

Dan, the ever-struggling, ever-indecisive artist, can’t decide which of these to release next. What do you think? Write a comment…
