DHP Family presents Dan Lyons

Dan Lyons is a musician living and writing in Margate, Kent. Perhaps previously better known as the drummer for bands such as Fat White Family and Phobophobes, his real job is a songwriter. He was born in Kent and moved back from London last year to escape the noise and pollution of city life. 2017 saw Dan finally stepping onto centre stage; performing under his own name and calling upon a host of musicians from the South London music scene and beyond to complete the line up for his backing band.
The songs written for Dan’s debut album were mostly done so between Paris and London during a long, difficult summer crowded with personal loss and intrepid soul searching. They paint a picture of city life, a keyhole glimpse into an intricate and fragile heart. Dan’s sound has been described as “Quintessential surrealist Anglo – pop”. Echoes of Echo & The Bunnymen and ‘Rubber Soul’ era Beatles entwine with lo-fi sensibilities that nod towards The Go Betweens, Syd Barrett and The Clean.
