Dan Kosub is a prolific singer/songwriter who has been a tenacious presence in the Canadian Music Scene for the better part of a decade.
Kosub is a roots singer/songwriter at heart who has been compared to every road-dog troubadour from Cat Stevens, to Jason Aldean, to John Mayer.
In recent years, Kosub has accrued a number of career milestones. Having toured relentlessly, he has performed at countless premier venues and Canadian festivals (TIFF, Rifflandia, Rock of the Woods, Five years at Canadian Music Week, and many more.) Additionally, Kosub has received heavy rotation on Canadian television of his single “Blue & Grey” (Reservoir, 2008) and a hard-earned spot on the Mediabase Alternative rock charts for his single “Aurelia” (Jacob’s Island, 2011).
In early 2015, Kosub released his third record Blood Honey Moon, produced by Winston Hauschild (Hannah Georgas, Hey! Ocean, Wanting) a three-song EP that delves both deeper into his love of pop, roots, and politics. The record’s leading single is “Reason to Go”, a catchy acoustic driven singalong, followed by a moving tribute to the late Jack Layton entitled “Jack” , and a trip-hop inspired look at dystopian Toronto entitled “After the Wave”.
In 2017, Kosub invested in a studio and released his first self-produced record, taking his music in a country-fried direction, with the lead single “Rocks & Gravel” inspired by the touring on the baron Canadian prairie backroads in July. In 2018, Kosub will star in the musical Once in Chemainus BC, between legs of national touring. He is currently working on a new spring/summer single.
