Biography

I'm Dan Bailey, 42yr old adventure/travel photographer by trade, but music was a part of my life long before I bought my first camera. I discovered my uncle's Led Zeppelin records while in elementary school and the electric guitar in high school, and I've been hooked ever since.

I'm primarily a rock and blues player, but I enjoy writing and recording many different styles of music, as I have an appreciation for the intricacies and feel that each style offers, whether it's all about crunching high energy guitar music, exotic rhythms and instrumentation or classic songrwiting and production. Recording my own music as been a long road of battling inspiration, motivation, self criticism and equipment, but due to recent advances in affordable computer recording technology and the realization that I ain't getting any younger, the original music that's been locked inside me for all these years is finally beginning to see the light of day.

My influences include Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Satriani, Mark Knopfler, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Chris Duarte, Led Zeppelin/Jimmy Page, The Rolling Stone/Keith Richards, Soundgarden/Chris Cornell, Pearl Jam, John Hiatt, Jesse Cook, and pretty much any other good music that I hear, of which there is an endless amount to be listened to, whether it's rock, blues, jazz, flamenco, world, electronica, funk, etc...
