In the American music market, many might not know his name, but Patlansky has almost a decade of experience of creating music, winning various awards and guesting with other notable musicians such as Bruce Springsteen, Joe Satriani, King King and Joanne Shaw Taylor to name a few. He is also a favorite with the European festival scene and when he tours in the UK, he plays sold-out shows! This is an artist that one wants to see live, for sure!

Hounds Loose” is a song with poignant lyrics re-telling the familiar story that dedicated musicians everywhere know about; the myth of old blues-man Robert Johnson who went to the crossroads of Highways 61 and 49 in Clarksdale, Mississippi, had another man re-tune his guitar and play a song on it and hand the guitar back to him. It is said that after Johnson arrived back in town, his guitar skills had greatly improved. Supposedly Johnson had sold his soul to the Devil for money, recognition and fame. Patlansky’s cut “Hounds Loose” is a bluesy, rock song, with great guitar solos and lyrics telling this legendary story in profound way.

Rock at Night says: “This artist’s guitar prowess is legendary and based on this debut cut off of Dan’s upcoming album, in all–it promises to be a stellar studio recording! With great guitar, an intriguing story-line, incredible musicianship and the ability to tell a story through lyrics and song, this artist has got it!
