Dan Kosub

On his debut album Reservoir, Canadian singer/songwriter Dan Kosub evokes an evocative pop/alternative sound, reminiscent of Matthew Sweet, James Blunt and the Barenaked Ladies. Hitting the road this summer, he will share his musical talents with audiences across the country from Toronto to Victoria kicking off on Canada Day with an intimate show at the Cameron House.

After relocating to Toronto, ON from Victoria, BC in 2006, Kosub wrote over 50 songs, including ten new tunes for his debut album Reservoir. The album features stand out tracks "Blue & Grey" and "I'll Never Know," as well as the environmentally conscious "Gone by 2040."

"Lyrically, I run the gamut of things that are a part of me; politics, social issues, stories, and of course the painfully confessional," explains Kosub. "Employing new writing methods make songwriting consistently fulfilling. Elliott Smith advocated searching for new ways of developing song ideas, which often leaves me more stimulated than a good idea alone."

"Blue & Grey" the albums first single and video, deals with the upswing of seasonal affective disorder, which Kosub suffers from. "It's about the early signs of spring that re-ignite a passion for life you forgot existed for the last six months," he says. "The last line of the song is the most telling of where I was when I wrote it...I was living alone in a dark basement apartment at the tail end of winter, going stir crazy."

Kosub draws on both formal and informal musical training, having graduated in 2006 from The Canadian College of Performing Arts in Victoria, BC, where he studied performance in multiple disciplines. While attending, he was a featured vocal soloist with the Victoria Symphony and was awarded the Bill and Margaret Bender Voice Scholarship.
