You probably already know it but I'm just going to say it again: I'm ridiculously proud of this countdown. The fact that so many incredible acts got involved means a lot to me and I couldn't be happier to be able to present you a month of live music.
What is the Birthday Countdown though? Throughout the entire month of February, one artist/one band a day is going to wish house in the sand a happy birthday and then perform a song exclusively for us.
Today the wonderful Dan Dietrich plays us a song.
Dan Dietrich is a singer/songwriter from Darmstadt, Germany.
His own material could be classified as acoustic/folk-rock and is inspired by artists such as Bob Dylan, Melanie Safka and Tracy Chapman.
So far Dan released a six track EP, played a countless amount of gigs on his own and with bands, he supported Canada's Morgan Finlay and Scotland's Martin and James and built a loyal fan base over the years.
Alright, I still can't believe it but this song has been written for our Birthday Countdown! It doesn't really get into my head how hard Dan worked on his performance of "Our Song" and I'm absolutely happy to have him on the blog.
Many, many thanks to Dan for three years of supporting each other, for amazing gigs and lovely chats. And for this awesome video!
Please go ahead and share this performance with your friends by using the hashtag #HITSBC15.
