The groove-based, bluesy over-toned sound of Dan Rodriguez’s music, mixed with his powerful, yet seductive voice creates an atmosphere different from other music. It’s refreshing, tantalizing, and just plain good!
Originally from Detroit, MI, Dan moved to Minneapolis in 2004 to pursue music. In January 2008, Dan started a self-titled solo project in the Twin Cities. June 13th, 2008, the album Unreal was released in Minneapolis, followed by a self-titled EP in 2011. His next album, Roaring Dan, was released in the Summer of 2013.
In September 2014 Budweiser released their “Friends Are Waiting” commercial featuring Dan’s performance of his original song “When You Come Home,” which was written for the commercial and pitched through Minneapolis based company In The Groove Music.
The Summer of 2015 marks the release of Dan’s most prolific, and widely distributed album “Come on Home,” featuring the Budweiser song “Friends are Waiting” and singles “Rum River” and “California.”
Dan has since been playing locally and touring throughout the Midwest and beyond, and sharing the stage with national acts including Grammy award winning duo The Civil Wars, Pete Francis (Dispatch), NeedtoBreathe, Augustana, Tyrone Wells, John McLaughlin, Andy Grammer and Eric Hutchinson.
