Dan Mangan Releases “The Indie Queens Are Waiting” Video and Announces Tour

Dan Mangan will be hitting the road on a national tour to build on his hometown success since releasing Nice, Nice, Very Nice on August 11. Both of Dan’s upcoming CD Release shows at The Vancouver East Cultural Center this weekend have been sold out for days while the single “Road Regrets” currently sits at #2 on Vancouver’s 100.5 The Peak and Dan himself will be on the cover of the Aug 27th – September 2nd edition of The Georgia Straight. Nice, Nice, Very Nice was released to glowing reviews nationally and is currently the top seller in iTunes Canada’s singer/songwriter category.

“…Knocks you flat on your ass… Mangan’s career is clearly on the rise. Hop on board and enjoy the ride.” – Exclaim!

“From his unusual and razor-sharp phrasing to the sage poetry in his everyday-life observations, he’s in the ranks of geniuses such as Greg Brown, Nick Drake or Badly Drawn Boy.” – The Province

“He’s an observer in the sense you’d want to join him on a patio for a drink just to see the city through his eyes for an afternoon. Until then, Nice, Nice, Very Nice effectively lets you pretend for just over 40 mesmerizing minutes.” – Chartattack

“With some of his strongest work to date and an already large fan-base, Nice, Nice, Very Nice could very well be the album that solidifies Mangan as the standout artist he is.” –Discorder

“It’s hard to believe that this new collection of stellar songs won’t help him leave each tour stop with countless new fans in his corner.” – Herohill

“Ultimately, it’s that ability to write lyrics that beg for some consideration of their meanings” – Vue Weekly

“If you like The Weakerthans or early Hawskley Workman, you’ll love this record. It’s all well crafted singer-songwriter stuff with impressive range.” –Metro

“Listeners wouldn’t expect the cheeky content to sail through waves of dynamic choral balladeering and colourful instrumentation, but Mangan doesn’t only pull it off, he makes it soar.” – SoundProof Magazine
