London based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer.
Inspired by the process of raw, live-take, acoustic recording, developing a sound as a homage to the past and to the artists – Dylan, Neil Young, Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, John Martyn, to name but a few.
“Restoration” was recently included in the unsigned playlist for Richer Unsigned and Q Magazine.
Singer-songwriter Dan Korn weaves enchanting melodies around exquisitely crafted lyrics. Dan’s evocative songs are “laden with farewells”.
Dan’s song-writing is often disarmingly simple, with lyrics that combine poetry with refreshing candour.
Dan performs solo and with a band comprising of Dan Korn (vocals/guitar), Joe Sharp (vocals/double bass), Bob Turley (lead guitar) and Joel Robertson (vocals/drums).

Her EP has received acclaim from various music magazines, such as:
