Description

Public Square on CD

Songs written by Dan Gonzalez are portraits of the common people and places that we never quite get around to knowing: the farmer tied to the legacy of the land he tills, the gypsies of southern Spain, or the housewife lost in American suburbia. Each song is part story, part truth, and part speculation delivered from the perspective of a songwriter who wonders, three minutes at a time, what it might be like to be somebody else. Dan got his start playing Paul Simon covers at the campus coffeeshops of Dartmouth College. After a degree in engineering and a few years teaching high school physics, he took a radical turn toward Boston's Berklee College of Music. There, he studied guitar and songwriting, and in 2003 was the recipient of Berklee's top songwriting scholarship. Today, Dan is an award-winning singer/songwriter who calls Boston home. In addition to performing and writing, he has initiated the Columbus Day Gift Project, a project that uses music to promote social justice.
