Dan Gediman, Singer/Songwriter


Dan Gediman

As a singer, songwriter, and band leader, Dan Gediman has been active in both the Dayton and Louisville music scenes since emigrating from the Boston area to go to college. His second CD, I Began To Fall, was released on ear X-tacy Records in 2002. His previous ear X-tacy album, I’m Trying, received airplay on AAA and Americana outlets around the country.

Though often placed into the Americana or alt-country genres by critics, Dan’s music can defy easy classification. One writer has dubbed it “bluegrass-flavored chamber rock”; others have called it “folkpop.”

In the wake of his success as a finalist at the Kerrville New Folk Contest (where past finalists have included Lyle Lovett, Nanci Griffith, and Steve Earle), National Public Radio called on Dan to wear both his radio and music hats simultaneously to cover the festival for its weekend newsmagazine program Anthem. Dan’s music also has been featured on two other public radio programs, Fresh Air and This American Life, as part of feature stories about Dan’s near-miss career as a child star. He was chosen for the first cast of public TV’s hit children’s series Zoom, but then was let go and replaced with a female performer.
