Contemporary rock guitar riff inspired songs with delivered with emotional vocals and smart cliche free lyrics, a mixture of rock, blues, and funkin' fun. Think Gary Moore and Joe Bonamassa meet Huey Lewis!
"I've always been inspired by the power of music, to entertain, provoke thought, suggest solutions, and allow us to forget about our problems for awhile. As a songwriter it can take some time to figure out what you want to say even though it seems easier to say what you mean with a guitar strapped on! It can be a bit scary, as once you put it out there you can’t take it back, so you might as well say it loud, so....... Hope you enjoy my new album and......Stand Back, I Don’t Know How Loud This Thing Gets!

Dan Doiron is an excellent guitarist. His latest release, From Deep Inside, draws to mind the guitar playing of David Gilmour, Eric Clapton and Glenn Frey. From the opening riff of the first song on the new album, you know you are in for one hell of a musical ride. -Martin Hickey, The Halifax Musicphile Full Review
"A confident, smokin' set full of hot leads, a variety of styles, and best of all, lots of cliche-free originals" -Bob Mersereau, CBC Producer

A blazing spitfire guitarist with a six-string wall of sound who combines traditional and modern blues influences to create his driving sound and energetic show. Dan Doiron has been addicted to the raw energy of the electric guitar since he formed his first band at age 13 in Port Hood, Cape Breton. In fact some people say they don't recognize him without a guitar strapped on. His unique sound reflects his diverse background in rock, blues and classical guitar.
For over 20 years he has been involved in the music industry in Atlantic Canada as a musician, music educator,(B.MUS.Ed from Dalhousie University with a major in classical guitar), National guitar clinician and recording engineer.
In April 2011 Dan stepped out as a solo recording artist, and immediately joined the top tier of regional blues players, earning an ECMA nomination and Music Nova Scotia nomination for his debut CD, “Even My Guitar Is In Love With You”.
The sophomore album, "From Deep Inside", was released in May 2013, and has been described as “A confident, smokin' set full of hot leads, a variety of styles, and best of all, lots of cliche-free originals. Doiron plays it full of energy, moving in and out of funk, rock, and scorching blues ballads.” The new album was also nominated for a 2013 Music Nova Scotia award for Blues album of the Year, and has also just been nominated for a 2014 East Coast Music Award for Blues Recording of the Year.
In October 2013 the band won the East Coast Music Association’s “Maritimes to Memphis Blues Challenge”. As a result they represented Atlantic Canada at the 2014 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, known as the premiere Blues event in the world! Now in May 2015 Dan is releasing his new album inspired by the trip to Memphis....."Stand Back...I Don't Know How Loud This Thing Gets!"
“As my journey as a musician continues, I am aware of what a great privilege it is to perform and share my music and stories with my audience.... thanks to everyone who inspires me to Dream Big and Play Loud...."
