Born in Los Angeles and raised in Philadelphia, Dan Harrison had been singing and learning numerous instruments from a very young age, but it wasn’t until he picked up guitar around age 11 that he felt the call to create his own music. Growing up influenced by classic rock, pop, electric blues, hip-hop and jazz, it was down south that he discovered where his musical path lay ahead. After graduating and working for two years, Harrison moved to Nashville in 2018 and since then has developed a strong network of co-writers and continues to hone his craft as a performer around town, sharing the stage with other fast-rising acts like Mitchell Tenpenny.

You said, in reference to music, “It connects us all across space, time and culture — it’s a lot more powerful than we realize.” What songs/stations did you listen to growing up in Philadelphia?
