BIOGRAPHY

Spurned by society and cast adrift in a psychotropic fog, autistic music obsessive Dan Bull retreats into his own mind and re-emerges several years later, dazzled and dazed, clutching a shiny compact disc.

He stumbles towards you and presses the CD into your hand."Safe" he confides; then shrinks once more into the gloom.

The brief description:

Dan Bull - 22 year-old vocalist, musician and producer - presents his debut album Safe, a concept piece combining hip hop, indie, pop, rock and reggae.

Safe tells the story of a young man who attempts suicide during a global thermonuclear holocaust and awakens in a new, ambiguous nirvana. Along the way, Dan Bull covers such topics as summer sunshine, friendship, love and loss, alienation, politics, death, religion and insanity.

Dan Bull has been called a cross between Mike Skinner and Morrissey - an unconventional, honest poet with underground credibility and mainstream appeal.
