Bio

Dan Hopkins and the Generous Few comprises the versatile talents of Dan's evocative songwriting ability and dynamic guitar playing mixed with a folk and rootsy blend of sounds that create a real ethereal and earthy package. Contributed to by Corey Sellwood’s intuitive bass and Oliver Savvy's earthy congos., Dan's has recorded the E.P Golden Girl and has been compared vocally to Cat Stevens, has the soul of Ben Harper and creates a vibe reminiscent to that of the John Butler Trio. The songs often resonate from a place deep down but nothing short of a very entertaining delivery is what you can expect from the Dan Hopkins and the Generous Few. The band recently performed a successful gig at the Basement in Sydney and is into the Top ten of the 2010 Music Oz awards with ‘Golden Girl’ in the Blues/Roots category. With uplifting appraisals from Chris Mazinski(Jeff Lang) and Paul Gommersall (Kate Bush; Paul Weller; Sinead O’conner)Dan and his crew are definitely on the rise. The band is currently immersing themselves in the creative process and are preparing themselves for an ep release in mid to late 2010. Keep a lookout for Dan and the band this year for upcoming gigs near you!
