Dan Kosub is a prolific folk pop singer/songwriter who has been a tenacious presence in the Canadian Music Scene for the better part of a decade.
Kosub’s music combines the hook-laden vocal swagger of Maroon Five’s Adam Levine, with the earthy, roots -rich intimacy of Elliott Smith and 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”.
Kosub is currently in the studio recording a followup to Blood Honey Moon, which he will release and tour behind this spring.
