Redheaded singer-songwriter Dan Godlin spent his high school years in Boston juggling two personas: that of a rough and tumble football captain but also a sensitive and heartfelt musician. Despite being scouted by Ivy League coaches, Dan chose to follow music. After graduating from NYU in 2012, he released his debut album Loving On Empty, which earned a place on the Top 200 “Hot AC” radio charts and reached the #3 spot on iHeart Radio’s “New!” countdown. Godlin was named Channel One’s Artist of the Month and was later nominated for Artist of the Year.
…a 25 year old dreamer who croons like Jason Mraz and embodies a magnetic, good-guy charm reminiscent of a male version of Taylor Swift…
In 2013, Godlin created a follow-up EP, In Between, co-writing and producing songs with Jim McGorman (Avril Lavigne, Cassadee Pope) and Robb Vallier (R. Kelly, Gin Blossoms). He hit the road in support of artists such as Howie Day, Anna Nalick, Tyler Hilton, Ryan Cabrera, and Tony Lucca. Some notable performances of Godlin’s included opening for Matt Nathanson, Colbie Caillat and Plain White T’s at Live In The Vineyard (LITV) and showcasing at Hollywood’s 9th Annual MUSEXPO. Along the way, Godlin toured colleges such as NYU, UMass Amherst, Marquette University, and Marshall University.
Godlin's songs have been featured on American Airlines’ most popular radio station The Hit List(alongside Ed Sheeran, LMFAO, and Ariana Grande) and have aired multiple times on E!’s "Keeping Up with the Kardashians", MTV's "The Challenge”, ABC Family's "The Vineyard”, and the hit Canadian TV show "Degrassi". Most recently, Dan's song "Hardly Wait" (co-written by Latch Key Kid) was featured in the trailer of Hong Kong's hottest new romantic comedy Women Who Flirt. Now based in LA, Godlin can be seen around town performing at venues such as The Hotel Café, The Viper Room, The Mint, and House of Blues. He is currently putting the finishing touches on his new self-produced EP, which is set for release in late 2015. [+]
