2018 Western Australian Circus Festival Friday 26th - Saturday 27th - Sunday 28th January 2018

Dan Howls

Dan Howls, dark blues rock guitarist and vocalist exploded onto the music scene last year debuting at Western Australia’s Nannup music festival.

His dark rough and sultry voice, deemed as a mix between Tom Waits and Jeff Buckley, accompanied by nothing but an electric guitar and a stomp on his foot, took the industry emerging artist award at the festival and won him time in the studio recording his first EP, Howler with James Newhouse (Ash Grundwald, The Kill Devil Hills).


Dan’s music shows a true love of the The Black Keys, Gary Clarke Jr, Tom Waits and Screamin’ Jay but with a menacing twist that creates an ecstatic lively, raw and original experience that leaves him covered in sweat and left the audience in awe of how such a voice comes from this 26 year old guitarist.
