Vancouver based singer-songwriter Dan Mangan completed his first EP in 2003, and has since released four full length albums and three EPs, won two Juno Awards, been nominated for the prestigious Polaris music prize, toured the world, composed music for film and television, and produced albums for fellow Canadian artists.
I first discovered Mangan with his excellent single “Road Regrets” from 2009’s Nice, Nice, Very Nice, and have been steadily following his career since. At the start of this year, Mangan released the heartbreaking new song “Fool for Waiting”. Three other great songs, “Troubled Mind”, “Just Fear” and “Cold in the Summer” followed, building up to the release of his upcoming fifth album, More or Less, coming out this Friday, November 2nd.
Dan was kind enough to take some time away from his current tour with Snow Patrol to discuss his new album and the influences behind it.
