Dan Webb is a Melbourne producer renowned for taking bold risks with little regard for convention. He has released 2 albums and 3 EP's in a truly innovative, fiercely-independent, genre-smashing career; music hailed as "the work of a genius" by Radio Adelaide with subsequent spins on Absolute Radio and BBC 6.
“As a little kid I had a burning desire to learn the trombone for some reason” Dan reflects. “My parents thought piano might be more suitable.” Webb started lessons at age four and continued to study classical, jazz and contemporary until he began to pursue his own brand of rock music, using keys as the lead instrument. He had been heavily involved in the Australian music scene since he was 14, interviewing upcoming local artists such as Gotye and hobnobbing with his heroes backstage as they toured down under. He’s had the fortune of rubbing shoulders with iconoclasts like Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Roy Ayers, Wynton Marsalis, and the late Sharon Jones whom he danced with and kissed on the cheek.
While Webb’s music could be classified under prog pop, the Miles Davis-worshiping musician and producer is more influenced by jazz greats than Top 40 and accordingly, his music doesn’t fit neatly into any existing genre.
