You may remember Dan, he was the lead singer and chief songwriter with ’80’s roots superstars, The Georgia Satellites and the composer of, “Keep Your Hands To Yourself”. Every night in America, it is estimated that at least eight bands will be covering that number. Not bad for a song that has just celebrated its thirtieth birthday.
Joining Dan in Homemade Sin is fellow ex Satellite, drummer Mauro Magellan and founder member of Americana Hall Of Fame Lifetime Achievement winners Jason And The Scorchers, guitarist Warner E. Hodges. The lineup is completed by new boy, Sean Savacool on bass.
The band has a reputation for being one of the best live acts on the circuit, appearing at the Sweden Rock festival in 2009 and 2016, Hard Rock Hell in 2011 and 2012. They also headlined the prestigious Kilkenny Festival in Ireland in 2012. 2017 saw them at the Ramblin’ Man Fair Festival and the Zwarte Cross Festival.
They have also established an annual series of concerts in London that attract fans from all around the world.
2017 was all set for Homemade Sin, with tours of the US, Australia, UK, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Italy, Spain and appearances on several high profile festivals.
March saw the release of their fourth and most successful studio album to date, “Rollercoaster”.
And then, mid tour, Dan was diagnosed with CLL, an aggressive form of leukemia and was hospitalised.
Forced to take the second half of 2017 off to address his condition, Dan and Homemade Sin return in May 2018, with a new studio album and an extensive tour taking in the UK, USA, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
