Fast rising solo artist/songwriter Dan Reardon currently juggles four non-exclusive publishing deals. When music biz legend Neil Gillis (Warner/Chappell Music 16 years) signed the Long Island, New York-based singer to a publishing deal, he had one transformative suggestion: Don’t try to sound like what you think others want to hear. When Reardon applied his stellar songwriting chops to the emotions within, he created his definitive music. The blend of poignantly personal lyrics and soaring choruses on the upcoming EP Can You Hear Me Now? (Right Me Up Records) is both distinctly Dan Reardon and universally resonant. Dan Reardon grew up a Dave Matthews Band fanatic and classic DMB is creatively indelible for him. “I can play those first three DMB records to a ‘T.’ I attribute a lot of my guitar playing to his unique chords and triads, it all still shines through.” Reardon’s first successful band was the modern pop-rock band, Soundside. That band did 5 records, one in Spanish, and played over 400 shows, opening for diversely esteemed artists such as Berlin, Days Of The New, The Tubes, and the New York Dolls. Other Soundside career highlights were a charity gig at Syracuse University’s Carrier Dome in front of 20,000 people, and working with producer Adam Lawson (Panic at the Disco, Paramore) and video director Scott Culver (Hellogoodbye, Yellowcard). Reardon’s 1st EP, Can You Hear Me Now?, joined the highly respected Insterscope roster with an exciting distribution deal. His publishing contract with Neil Gillis and Round Hill Music is poised to offer him some real strength in the synch licensing world. The company owns the rights to several Beatles songs and Back Street Boys songs, empowering Round Hill with some primetime licensing leverage. Dan's latest EP Soul Searcher, features the hit single "King of My World", which has already gained traction on college radio. The album release is his most introspective and exhilarating statement and uses stories from an outside perspective to offer listeners inspiration to uplift their lives and foster thought provoking moments. Dan is bilingual in Spanish and has also released a Spanish version of the hit single “King of My World”. The album also features a collaborative effort from iconic engineers and producers such as Michael James (Jane’s Addiction, Chicago, Edwin McCain), and David Donnelly (Aerosmith, Journey, Red Hot Chili Peppers). "Dan once again will take you on a "soul searching" journey that will leave you feeling hopeful and wanting more." - Lorne Behrman, CMJ, SPIN, THE VILLAGE VOICE
Dan's new single "King of My World" will be released July '14 along with it's Spanish counterpart "Rey De Mi Mundo". The single will be released under RIGHT ME UP RECORDS and THE ORCHARD.
