So you bought Dan Haas' sophomore CD "GOODbye MOON," and were immediately blown away by every note you heard. Ok, maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration. Anyway, now... rightfully so, you'd like to hear more. Good news: there is more. Better news: Dan's band Ben's Bones is about to release a live CD with 15 tracks of brand new material!
Two years before, "GOODbye MOON," Dan's landmark record produced by Joe Pisapia, his debut recording, "11 Songs," was released. Simple enough title, sure. But what we the listener are treated to here, is a glimpse into the future. It's a chance to witness Dan's songwriting, singing and instrumentation grow.
"11 Songs," was mixed and mastered one spring weekend in May 2001 in Baltimore. Combining the warmth of an acoustic guitar with intimate vocals, Dan crafted eleven solid pop songs delivered from an intensely personally perspective.
