"When I arrive at Mercury Lounge in the East Village, there’s a line down the block and a sign on the front door of the bar that says “tonight’s show: SOLD OUT”. When the doors open, I make my way to the front of the venue. Australian native, Dan Krochmal, opens the show. His angelic voice accompanied by an acoustic guitar he plays himself, makes me thankful for arriving to the show early. He plays a set of a few covers and a lot of originals, and gets everybody excited for the rest of the night with his tunes and witty on stage banter." - Stitched Sound

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.
In late 2014, Krochmal paid homage to one of his heroes with a stand-out performance at the 17th Annual Jeff Buckley Tribute in Chicago, before embarking on a solo acoustic tour through the US. After performing in New York, he realized he needed to move there, returning in May 2015 with only a suitcase and his guitar.
In 2016 he was a featured interviewee in Sony Music’s “You & I” documentary about Jeff Buckley’s early career. He lived in the East Village, where he performed at many world-renowned venues including Rockwood Music Hall, Mercury Lounge, Pianos, and the Bitter End, and opened for larger acts like Reeve Carney and Fatai.
In 2018, Dan 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. Dan was invited to perform at the March For Our Lives rally on Long Island in support of the student protests.
Dan released his second studio album, "Avenues", on October 30th, 2020. He recorded the rhythm beds at Grand Street Recording in Brooklyn with Lenny “The Ox” Reece on drums (Demi Lovato, Kimbra, Super Duper Kyle, DJ Premier and many others), and David Cutler on bass (Iggy Azalea, SZA, JT Taylor). He recorded most of the other instruments himself in his studio space, where he also mixed the record. It was mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound.
In November 2020, Dan was scouted to privately audition for American Idol. After successfully completing two rounds of producer auditions, he was flown to Ojai, CA for the final celebrity judge audition round (placing him in the final few hundred contestants), where he performed for Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan.
Dan will be releasing his third studio album later in 2022.
Released 18th September 2020
