Dan Whitehouse: THE GLASS AGE with Alan Fish

Singer-guitarist Dan Whitehouse renews, reinvents and reimagines – revealing how he carefully nurtured his creativity during an imposed stay in Japan from January 2020 to June 2021. Mike Davies calls this collection of songs a “meditation on the way human experience and connecting has changed through the medium of virtual communication.”

Dan uses his exceptional storytelling to explore the thin and fragile layer between digital and emotional life. Deeply poignant lyrics and atmospheric musical arrangements move the listener towards celebrating community spirit and connecting with authenticity. He will sing all seven songs from The Glass Age along with a selection from his five previous albums and new collaboration Voices From The Cones, about the history and community of Stourbridge’s Glassworks.

“….. an intense, deeply personal performance. Alternating between guitar frenzy and stripped back soundscapes, the fragility and vulnerability of the human spirit was laid bare in lyrics that cut to the bone. An awesome roller-coaster of a ride, and absolutely wonderful.” Beardy Folk Festival live review Festivals For All

“For an album partly inspired by distance, barriers and locked-down-ness, people and connection ripple through The Glass Age.” Arts Culture Mag

“I defy anyone not to see shadows of Leonard Cohen in the literary quality of the writing…. Dan’s emotive singing brings in a sense of isolation and yearning for the real human contact we still need.” Fatea Magizine
