Australian-born singer-songwriter Dan Krochmal has been stunning audiences into silence since his arrival to the US. With an ethereal voice that soars across octaves, and poignant, vivid lyrics coming straight from the soul, Krochmal’s performances defy gravity.
Formerly an aspiring novelist (he completed an unpublished 92,000 word piece by the age of 17), Krochmal started teaching himself guitar chords after finishing high school and was instantly hooked. He soon realized that performing original music on stage was the perfect way for him to convey the narratives he had always felt compelled to write.
He embarked on his first US solo tour after being selected as one of ten acts globally to perform at a tribute concert for Jeff Buckley in Chicago. He visited New York and instantly knew it was where he needed to live. He moved from Australia to the East Village, and performed at many world-renowned venues such as Mercury Lounge, Rockwood Music Hall, the Bitter End, and Pianos (including sold out shows opening for Reeve Carney and Fatai).
In 2018, Krochmal released a single called ‘Pride Before The Fall’ in response to the Parkland high school massacre. A live video of the song, performed in Times Square, garnered over 31,000 views in several days. He was invited to perform at the March For Our Lives rally on Long Island in support of the student protests.
Krochmal released his second studio album, "Avenues" in 2020. It features Lenny “The Ox” Reece on drums (Demi Lovato, Kimbra, Super Duper Kyle, DJ Premier) and David Cutler on bass (Iggy Azalea, SZA, JT Taylor).
In November 2020, Dan was scouted to privately audition for American Idol. After successfully completing two rounds of producer auditions, he was flown to California, where he performed for Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan.
"Home & Holding" was released on June 16th 2023
