Dan Weltman is the lead singer and songwriter with Bristol’s best kept secret Snails, whose second LP ‘Hard-Wired’ recently graced the 6 Music airwaves via Gideon Coe’s show. His forthcoming solo record paints from a more acoustic palette, with fingerstyle folk and country / americana among the influences jostling for position behind his heart-on-sleeve torch songs, all dissecting the highs and lows of human relationships. His plaintive, beautifully honed songwriting aims for the coat tails of Dylan and Cohen, but often reaches into the top pocket. https://www.theundergrowth.co.uk/dan-weltman Watch the VOxjam video here!
