Call Of The West
Dr. Fry Band
Dan Nash is not traditional country but a combination
of progressive folk, light rock and contemporary country.... a sense of gentleness, a
touch of tenderness and a wealth of wisdom set to music.
Dan's extraordinary background has been a part of what
has formed the man that has a rather advanced yet serene outlook on life and it's
situations. Born in Vancouver and raised throughout Canada, Dan's family came to settle in
the Great White North.
"Going through my teens in the Canadian Arctic
afforded me a unique outlook on the world. To start, we were extremely isolated to many of

most of the kids I grew up with were from 'somewhere else' blending a wide variety of
ethnic and cultural backgrounds. With such a variety of backgrounds the musical influences
were unbelievable. No such thing as top 40, so we weren't indoctrinated to what was being

guitar and writing songs..."
Dan says, "I've never had to become 'an angry
young man', I am truly amazed and in awe of the world around me on a daily basis."
This attitude toward life is well reflected in Dan's music. His diversity, eclectic
styling, and simple yet well versed phrasing of his views on life and love are all a part
of him that he shares freely in his music. There is a deepness to Dan Nash which is
very pronounced in "Where's Annie", a sweet and sad song about a child's plight
which took away her childhood, dreams and hopes leaving her in despair....because of her
Simply put, Dan Nash's music is of and from the heart.
