EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT - A very nice plug for my January 5th show in Philadelphia Inquirer by music writer Nick Cristiano.
"DAN MAY - A former opera singer who beat long odds against cancer, Dan May reinvented himself in his 40's as a pop singer-songwriter. That's a story in itself, but it wouldn't be half as interesting if he weren't so good at that new job. Since his first album in 2006, the Drexel Hill resident has been turning out folk-inflected songs marked by lyrical grace, memorable hooks and exquisite craftsmanship. With a deep, resonant voice that recalls Gordon Lightfoot and Richard Thompson, May exudes warmth and wisdom, and he balances an ability to dig deep with a light touch. He plays the Locks at Sona on Saturday with pop-rock soul singer Sierra Hurtt."
