Who Am I
Dan Bond is a 28 year old singer/songwriter influenced by pop and country music. He first came to prominence in 2011 as lead singer in pop/folk duo, Music & Spies.
In 2013, he released his first EP of original music under Music & Spies, titled ‘In My Hands’ which soared in to the top 20’s in the iTunes singer/songwriter chart.
The title track, ‘In My Hands,’ won an award for best original song in the national music competition OpenMicUK, while ‘Good Things Happen In The Rain’ came highly praised by BBC6 music presenter, Tom Robinson.
Since then, Dan’s music has not gone unnoticed, with 3 nominations and a win for best duo from Cambridge 105 radio’s NMG Awards, an event that people including Bob Harris and Sheila Ravenscroft (John Peel’s wife) have supported.
Dan has toured extensively around the country, sharing the stage with groups such as X-Factor Finalists ‘MK1’ and Lucy Spraggan, whom he supported at sold-out venues such as Liverpool O2 Academy, Leicester O2 Academy, Brighton Coalition and Borderline, London on her post X-Factor tour.
In 2016 Dan recorded and released ‘Three Good Friends’, a four track EP which follows the same unique and uplifting tone as the previous record. Influenced by musicians such as Jason Mraz, John Mayer and Brad Paisley, his music has been a hit on the Hertfordshire music scene.
In July 2019, Dan released his first stand-alone single ‘If It’s Alright’. A song co-written and recorded with brother, Ollie Bond. Following the release, Dan won his second NMG Award for Best Male Solo Artist, and was also featured as Richer Unsigned’s Artist of the week.
