Dan Weber is an award winning songwriter who has been described as "reminiscent of early John Prine." Legendary Folk troubadour Ramblin' Jack Elliott said "I love Dan’s songs and he tells really good stories."
"As I kid I fell in love with story songs by the likes of Jim Croce, Harry Chapin, and Gordon Lightfoot. Fast forward 20 years, I got my first guitar while working off-the-grid as a Park Ranger in Canyonlands National Park and I started writing songs." Weber draws inspiration from a wide range of life experiences: growing up as an altar boy and Eagle Scout; following the Grateful Dead; doing factory work, mucking stalls, painting houses, and quitting his real estate appraisal business to pursue songwriting and touring full-time. He has a knack for telling funny stories and writing songs that make you want to tap your feet and sing along.
If you like Guy Clark, Robert Earl Keen, or Hayes Carll, you’ll love Dan Weber’s music. In 2019 Dan was the winner of the prestigious Woody Guthrie songwriting contest for 'Ever Since Columbine', and in 2021 he was named a rare 4 time finalist in the legendary Kerrville ‘New Folk’ songwriting competition. In 2022, he released his much anticipated 3rd studio record, 'The Way the River Goes', which promises to be his best work yet. He currently lives near Dallas, Texas.
