*** "When I began touring I played in North America, in Nashville, Austin, L.A. and New York. I stayed with a friend in New York and hustled gigs, mainly playing solo shows. I was fortunate enough to perform at CBGB before it closed. I got the gig by walking in and asking for one, miraculously they had someone drop out at the last minute and I got a call that afternoon and performed there the next night - I felt like I had made it in the world of rock n roll......."

LOST NOT FOUND 2017 EUROPEAN TOUR
HOT PANTS TOURING PROUDLY PRESENTS "DAN BRODIE 2017 LOST NOT FOUND EUROPEAN TOUR"
Dan returns to Europe in support of his superb new Album of reinterpreted covers, Lost Not Found.
Lost Not Found is a Sunday hangover for any day of the week, a loner’s gem, a startling set of back-alley takes on established classics; new life breathing in through the bones of these songs, the flesh exposed, the spirit soaked in new bar-room spirits no doubt, but something wonderful has happened here. - Simon Sweetman/Off The Tracks, July 2017
Acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter Dan Brodie returns to present LOST NOT FOUND, a collection of other people’s songs, reinterpreted.
Brodie recorded the Album in his home studio in Melbourne, playing the majority of instruments including guitar, bass, piano, synthesiser and percussion, working relentlessly to flesh out the blood and guts of the original song.
For Brodie, choosing the songs all came down to the storytelling and emotional power of the lyrics,
“It all came down to the lyrics, which surprised me, as I always assumed that every great song could be reinterpreted, but for me that was not the case. Some songs are of their time and place, but to reach across time they also need a great lyric as a foundation in which to lay down your own interpretation and story ”
Since 1999, Brodie has captured audiences around the world, releasing a succession of albums (seven in total) which have been nominated for numerous awards.
His musical talents regularly take him to Europe, performing to sold-out audiences in Paris and Barcelona as well as to the U.S., U.K. and Switzerland, having played at such iconic venues as CBGB in New York, The Continental in Austin, The Exit/In in Nashville and The Olympia in Paris.
Don't miss Dan live in action across Europe with a run of both solo and band shows (featuring Vinz Guilley on bass and Yann Marteil on drums)...
