Dan Garner

Described as a singer/songwriter who paints a diverse sonic and lyrical landscape, showcasing a broad diversity of musical influences, Dan Garner is a veteran of the Blues Festival circuit as well as the Shreveport, Louisiana music scene, having played on practically every stage in the city, from clubs to casinos. His work has been compared to Nick Drake, Michael Franks, Paul Simon and Leonard Cohen meets Guy Clark.
Dan was an apprentice for thirteen years to the late legendary pre-war bluesman, JesseThomas, recording and performing with him until Thomas' death in 1995. Dan played with Thomas in venues and festivals across the country, including the New Orleans Jazz Festival and the Long Beach Blues Festival. Living Blues magazine referred to Garner's work on the release of Thomas' "Looking For That Woman" as "well attuned."
Through various labels, Garner has produced over a dozen releases, which span the genres of acoustic blues, rockabilly, gospel, folk and New Orleans Jazz Funeral Marches. In addition to documenting some of the vanishing music traditions of Northwest Louisiana, "Louisiana Dan" Garner has also produced music for commercials and jingles in the Americana tradition. He has recently contributed a chapter to the University Press of Mississippi's "Shreveport Sounds In Black and White" a history of music in North Louisiana.
Garner is a voting member of the The Recording Academy, a singer/songwriter, a magician and a crazy kid with a dream.
