Introducing.... Dan Haynes

BBC WM Introducing welcomed singer-songwriter Dan Haynes into the studios on Thursday 27th September 2007. An incredibly talented musician; listen again here to Dan's acoustic performance.

BBC WM Introducing

From a young age the Stourbridge born singer-songwriter has been surrounded by musicians.

Speaking live on BBC WM Introducing Dan said:

"My mum and dad were in bands when they were younger. They were in a group called Revival. They also did slots on the radio and in Stourbridge Town Hall and things like that.

"And then there's my uncle Pete who's also in a band as well - The Starving Rascals."

Dan played four songs live in session on BBC WM Introducing and is currently in the midst of expanding his repertoire in the hopes of breaking out:

"Up until recently I've always done things alone or possibly drafted in one other singer but recently I've been playing with a pianist and a cello player which has been really good fun."

"It's all about sticking out and then eventually - hopefully - getting noticed by the right people."
