Dan Bettridge

Dan Bettridge is an artist whose output has defied rigid classification as soul, rock or country. Bettridge stands up with the kind of growl and swagger you’d expect from a singer songwriter twice his age.

In Dan’s case, his style is an amalgamation honed from his parents’ record collection – James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and his own love for artists such as Frank Ocean, The War On Drugs, Childish Gambino, John Mayer among many more. Such a rounded music experience provided the perfect range of classics and modern contemporary sounds to inspire an artist to produce instant classics.

His debut release, the stripped-back, beautiful Hunter’s Heart EP – was embraced by Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1 and, rarely, by Dermot O’Leary on BBC Radio 2, showing an immediate ability to engage listeners across the tastemaker and classic spectrum. Following multiple sessions at the legendary BBC Maida Vale Studios and supporting the likes of Band of Horses on their UK tour in 2016, Dan released brand new singles Heavenly Father and Blame in 2017.

Bettridge’s debut album was released in a truly distinctive fashion in Waves of four songs at a time – Asking for Trouble (Wave One), Asking for Trouble (Wave Two) & Asking for Trouble (Wave Three). Bettridge said “I thought the songs deserved to be met with no distraction. It’s me saying ‘I think I did it – take a look at these 4 songs at a time’.” The full album Asking for Trouble was subsequently released on July 6th 2018 to critical acclaim.
