Dan Mangan

While growing up in Vancouver, songwriter Dan Mangan immersed himself in his parents’ record collection, paying special attention to albums by Nick Drake and the Beatles. Folk and pop thus became two of his biggest influences, and Mangan combined both genres while writing his own songs as a teenager. At 20 years old, he made his solo debut by releasing an acoustic EP, with the full-length Postcards and Daydreaming following two years later. Postcards and Daydreaming was later released in America, leading Mangan to increase his touring commitments and widen his fan base. In 2009, he returned with a second album, Nice, Nice, Very Nice, which landed on the Polaris Music Prize shortlist. Mangan followed up two years later with Oh, Fortune, showing the troubadour’s matured songwriting and arrangements, produced by Colin Stewart .

Crippled Black Phoenix-12.05.2011 / Arena

Crippled Black Phoenix knüpfen dort an, wo PINK FLOYD 1975 mit „Wish You Were Here“ aufhörten.
Nun hat Bandleader Justin Greaves (Ex Electric Wizard, Iron Monkey) erneut seine Band zusammengetrommelt, um auch nach Europa auf Tour zu gehen. Dazu werden acht Musiker die Bühne bevölkern, ein Tribut, den die Band an ihren opulenten Sound zahlt, der mit weniger Musikern kaum adäquat umzusetzen wäre.
