After the success of the 2015 European release of Dan’s latest album, Dear Silence Thieves, at The Borderline in London on 27 April, Dan has been receiving rave reviews in Europe, whilst extensively touring Germany, Poland, UK and the Netherlands earlier this year.
"Everyone is talking about this South African singer/guitarist these days. You will be too after you’ve wrapped eardrums around this potent
dose of blues rock."
- The Blues Magazine UK, August 2015
"Dan Patlansky might be from the opposite side of world, but holds the future of blues in his hands."
- Classic Rock Magazine UK, August 2015
"Award-winning South African Dan Patlansky brings some much needed spark to an over-subscribed genre on his seventh album... It seems churlish to call a player so far into his career ‘one to watch’, but he is."
- Guitarist Magazine UK, May 2015

Ever since his debut album, Standing At The Station, followed by his 2004 major label (Blue Note, EMI produced) masterstroke True Blues, Dan Patlansky has been immersing himself in the rich and rollicking world of blues rock music.
In February 2005, and again in July 2006, Selwyn Miller, the New Orleans based manager of David Gates, Bread, Randy Crawford and Petula Clark (amongst others), took Patlansky to New Orleans to showcase his outstanding talent.
In 2006 Fender acknowledged his talent with a guitar and amp endorsement, making him only one of six on the continent to enjoy such a privilege.
As Dan settled into his groove, what followed was a barrage of brilliantly executed eclectic and acoustic blues albums. 2006 brought with Real, Move My Soul in 2009, 20 Stones in 2012, and the unplugged wonder of 2013’s acoustically anchored Wooden Thoughts release.
With each new release, Patlansky’s albums brought with him a tighter and more engaging lyrical twist and even more interesting turns, all of which led beautifully to his much anticipated 2014 full electric album released in May.

"After over a decade of making albums for us, Dan’s seventh album continues to deliver the goods that have made him the premier blues rock guitar player in South Africa, if not one of the top in the world."
– Blues Rock Review
In December 2014, DEAR SILENCE THIEVES (produced by Theo Crous) was nominated as the No. 1 Blues Rock Album in the world released for 2014 by BLUES ROCK REVIEW, alongside Joe Bonamassa, Rival Sons, Devon Allman, The Black Keys, Philip Sayce, and many more.
After touring Europe in 2013 with Everlast, Dan returned to the continent in October 2014 for another tour to promote Dear Silence Thieves internationally. He impressed Norway when he headlined the FJORD BLUES FESTIVAL. His performance was described as ‘magic’ and ‘religious experience’.
With successful shows in the Netherlands and Germany, Dan ended his European tour by headlining the HORSENS BLUES FESTIVAL in Denmark, a festival where he played at the
‘Showcase Stage’ in the basement in 2013.
