Dan Davidson

Set times

Alberta’s country sensation Dan Davidson has created undeniable momentum in the last few years.

With 6 CCMA nominations, 10 ACMA awards, a gold record, a #1 selling Canadian song and record, top 20 charting numbers and hundreds of performances – it's easy to forget that he is still independent. Dan exploded onto the Canadian country scene in 2016 with the release of his second single “Found”. Dan became arguably the indie story of 2016/2017 as his single “Found” rocketed up the charts and he became the #1 charting indie artist in Canada.

The following singles helped further his momentum with more top 20 recognition and solidified his name as an artist on the rise – definitely someone to watch as he nears his first platinum record. Dan’s country sound came together as he started writing and working on music with Toronto producer Jeff Dalziel and the two spent the better part of a year developing an EP that’s characteristic of Dan’s love of “good time” music. Those “good time” vibes are also a huge part of his personality. One view of his music videos and you will understand that the fun, sincere energy Dan brings to country music is truly unique. Dan has played over 200 shows across seven countries (including a record-breaking 120 show tour with Brett Kissel on the most extensive tour in Canadian history). While on tour with Brett Kissel in 2019, Dan’s EP “Juliet” was released, and debuted at #1 on the Canadian iTunes Country charts. The album was later nominated for Roots Album Of The Year at the 2019 CCMA, and was the album that won for “Producer of the Year”.

Keep an eye out for his upcoming single “Roll With It” featuring his good friends The Road Hammers and get ready to welcome Dan to the Groundwater CMF stage this October.
