Strongly rhythmic with fresh, charming lyrics, Dan Fisk's Drifting traces the path a heart takes on its sojourn through life.
Drifting rubs the edges of the singer-songwriter and country genres, transcending both with a unique, appealing sound. Produced, engineered and co-written by Dave Mallen, Drifting has a radio-ready quality that is not normally found in an independent CD.
Opening with a bouncy, pop-tinged song of finding love (As Long As I'm With You), Drifting shifts into a rollicking, funky break-up tune (Heart Lies) - and the road of love/loss/love-again begins. The contribution of talented musicians from Nashville and the Washington DC area, including Buddy Speir, Mike Smirnoff, Heather Mae and more, give Drifting its big, bold sound. A dirty slide guitar, a funky horn section, or 4-piece rock/country set-up – each backs and reinforces the message of the song, while staying true to the sound of the entire CD.
Confessional in the broadest sense, Fisk's heart beats with his songs, engaging in an emotional conversation with his audience. "Music allows me to have a dialog with people, where we can both feel the same feelings, but on a deeper level than we could if we were just talking to each other."
Drifting is Fisk's sophomore solo album; his first, Bruises From The Backseat, featured the award-winning song, A Thousand Love Songs (2009 Mid-Atlantic Song Contest/The Songwriters Association of Washington). He has opened for Jay Nash and Garrison Starr and others, and plays solo regularly in Washington DC, New York, North Carolina and Chicago, growing an loyal, expanding following.
