DF Concerts presents:
+ Dan Bettridge
Entry Requirements: over 14s (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult)
Well, every time rock ‘n’ roll stumbles or hits a pothole, someone comes along to breathe new life and spirit into its lungs. Dan Bettridge, at all of 22 years old, knows his Stax from his Motown, his Sun from his Chess Records, and understands that it’s all about singing straight from the middle of his own bruised heart.
His music has been embraced by Huw Stephens on his BBC Introducing show on Radio 1, by Bob Harris, Jo Whiley, Clare Balding, Mark Radcliffe and Dermot O’Leary on Radio 2, across the BBC Radio Wales network, BBC Radio London, BBC Scotland, and Amazing Radio - admirably demonstrating that great music is not only timeless, but ageless too.
With invites to play showcases at major international festivals; including Canadian Music Week and NXNE (Toronto) along with CMJ in New York, being handpicked by Bob Harris for a special BBC Introducing live session at Maida Vale studios for BBC Radio 2, plus the widespread support from BBC HORIZONS scheme through 2015, the best of Dan’s remarkable voice is only just beginning to be heard throughout the UK and further afield.
Dan’s new single Rosie Darling is available to download now via iTunes.
** "Really talented guy!" - Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1
"I just loved his music!" - Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
“Beautiful, troubadour voice” - Dermot O’Leary, BBC Radio 2
“This is not some flash in the pan, his song writing is already at a level well beyond his years”, “He has all the tools here to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Ben Howard” - Stereoboard
“For a young man of 20, he has the soulful voice of a life well lived and his lyrical content is way beyond his years. It’s almost like in a previous life he was a drifter in 1930s/40s Chicago” - I Am Music TV
