Erica Rivera Spotlights Dan Croll

Spotlight: Dan Croll

British singer-songwriter Dan Croll discovered music at age 17 thanks to a broken leg that ended his rugby career. In 2011, as a student of the Liverpool Institute Of Performing Arts, Croll’s folk-pop tunes were praised by Sir Paul McCartney and won Croll the Musicians Benevolent Fund Songwriter of the Year Award. The 23-year-old, whom the Guardian described as “Paul Simon jamming with Prince,” just released his studio album debut “Sweet Disarray” on Capitol Records. Singles Home and “From Nowhere” have steadily gained traction, and Croll performed both last month on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
