For years, the musical faithful of melodically over-endowed acts like Cheap Trick, The Pretenders, and Jonathan Richman were confused and bewildered by the failure of modern day power pop to carry on the legacy in this post-Beatles era. But the thing is, it did happen. Pop music conquered the airwaves once again, but it was in the form of Disney singers and tweener bands.
Dan Zweben is a singer/songwriter and guitarist who answers the question, "Where is all the good, catchy pop music?" Zweben is both a rocker and a folk artist. He allows his breezy voice to linger on lyrics that hint darkly at themes of loss, pain, and general human regret. The music behind those arresting words takes even more daring twists: as great as Zweben croons with a sugary harmony arrangement, prepare yourself to be surprised within moments by one of his vicious guitar riffs.
Dan Zweben's music has recently been featured on television shows such as, "October Road," "Smallville," "Ghost Whisperer," and MTV's "The Real World." His music video for "You Don't Have To Love Me" (starring Vampire Diaries actress Michaela McManus) was selected for The Hollywood East Film Festival.
