Tell us about yourself and how you started performing?
Hi! I am a 23-year-old singer/songwriter from Yorkshire. I started performing in multiple bands at school when I was 11 and I fell in love with it. I played in a brass band, jazz band, big band and started a pop-rock band with my mates! By the time I was 17 we had toured LA, signed our first deal and recorded our first singles. I decided against the traditional education route and me and the band went on to tour for a while, ending in an arena tour with The Vamps last year. Now I use a loop pedal to create the full band sound myself!
What do you like the most about your job?
When you finish a great gig and everyone on a high!
How would you describe your style?
If I’m honest, it depends on the event but using my loop pedal I can either create a pop/jazz sound great for background music at parties/drinks receptions, or an upbeat dance set with all the bangers!
I think Instant Quote is great! It saves so much time and if you take the time to get your packages right, you will get more serious inquiries. I’ve already had multiple bookings without even talking to the client
You have an amazing 5-star rating on Poptop with 17 certified reviews. What is the importance of reviews for building a reputation to gain more bookings?
I don’t ever go to a gig solely to get a good review, I go because I love performing and I love seeing people having a good time to my music (sounds cheesy I know but it’s true!). The reviews are a great bonus for me as I know if I was planning a wedding, I would always check out what other people thought of whoever I was booking before I reached out to them.
Poptop Clients LOVE Dan Reynard! Read this amazing certified review:
Dan was extremely responsive and great to communicate with every step of the way for an important and special event. He even learned a song for us in a language he doesn’t speak (Spanish) and played a great rendition of it! He is a talented musician and an overall cool person. Grateful to have met himRicardo Lopez
Which musicians have influenced you as a performer?
I’d be lying if I didn’t say Ed Sheeran, his work with the loop pedal is amazing and I’ve copied so many of his techniques over the years. Also, I love the way Bruno Mars and his band play.
I can see you have numerous Instant Quote packages, how do you feel about the new system?
I think Instant Quote is great! It saves so much time and if you take the time to get your packages right, you will get more serious inquiries. I’ve already had multiple bookings without even talking to the client.
How has membership benefited you on Poptop?
The main thing for me has been the increase in enquiries! As people from wider parts of the UK have seen my profile and got in touch.
How have you found using Poptop and the help provided by the Poptop team?
I’m so glad I found Poptop and took the chance to get a membership, I haven’t looked back! The Poptop team are a big bunch of legends.
What’s the strangest event, or thing to happen at an event, you have performed at?
I can’t tell you most of these as they are very far from PG, especially with the band haha. But being asked to join The Vamps on stage at Manchester Arena in front of 20,000 was a “pinch-worthy” moment, and the strangest has to be tied with every time in the last few years I’ve played in peoples kitchens/conservatories, etc.. so much fun though!
Anything else you would like to add?
Thanks, Poptop + Team!
