Dan Burnett is one of the UK’s leading piano vocalists. It’s in his blood.
He was spoon-fed blues, soul, funk and rock music from an early age by his dad, Laurie Burnett - who was in bands with ex David Bowie’s ‘Spiders from Mars’ members Mick ‘Woody’ Woodmansey and Trevor Bolder, and as a youngster was taught guitar by his good friend the legendary Mick Ronson.
Over the last few years, Dan has written and recorded music for TV & Film (including the new Nicolas Cage movie ‘Stolen’), and has gigged extensively throughout the UK, Europe and the USA. He’s shared stages with the likes of: Aynsley Lister, Sherman Robertson, The Animals & friends, Mick Ralphs (ex Bad Company/Mott The Hoople), Matt Schofield, Todd Sharpville, Debbie Davies, Nine Below Zero and Paul Jones (The Blues Band / Manfred Mann).
Dan currently plays gigs throughout the UK as a solo artist, and with The Dan Burnett Band. Dan is proud to endorse Kawai Pianos internationally, works closely with Roland Europe, and was nominated in the 2015 & 2016 British Blues Awards.
