Dan Mangan

Lately, one of the best places to look for up-and-coming indie/alternative/folk musicians has been the great nation of Canada! A surprising number of great bands have recently come out of the sparsely populated country and into the vast American audience. One of these gems is Vancouver-based singer/songwriter Dan Mangan. Having been compared to Nick Drake and The Swell Season, Mangan has a beautiful, woodsy voice and the guitar and songwriting skills to do it justice. His latest album, Nice, Nice, Very Nice, released in 2009, has been one of the most exciting folk albums I have heard in a while. Luckily, he is set to release his next work, Oh Fortune, on September 27th, and I could not be more eager to hear it!
