Dan Hull teaches teens in his new ‘full on’ exciting career path, but the Mudgee muso still picks a guitar, and sings down a mic for locals - and visitors, who manage to get there.

Born and bred in Mudgee, Dan plays acoustic rock and pop covers across the local gig scene, and tries to cater to all eras so there’s something for everyone. He performs solo, and as a part of the Dan and Dan act, with fellow local Dan Brown. “My influences are extremely broad as I was classically trained on piano in my younger years, and cut my teeth behind drums on the pub circuit as a teenager, playing rock and metal,” he said. “I am currently spending most of my time playing acoustic covers on guitar, and singing,” he said.

Dan said pre-recent lockdown the town attracted many tourists, which got his act more exposure.

“Mudgee has so many great venues, whether it be pubs, wineries, function venues... with great owners and staff,” he told the Mudgee Phoenix. “Because there is such a high tourist turnover you don’t get stuck playing to the same faces as well.”

But ‘Covid absolutely hamstrung all performers’, and so his art has suffered. In fact a gig at Club Mudgee with Dan Brown was rescheduled because of it.

Despite the drawbacks Dan has been able to focus attention away from the mess by changing careers, away from his environmental rehabilitation job at the coalmines. “I've just started teaching full time hours at the high school, so that is taking up a lot of my spare time,” he said. “It’s full on, but a super fun new career path.”

But he still plans to keep his music act going, and hopes to perform solo at the Oriental and Woolpack hotels this month, so for updates contact the venues.

Dan has been described as having a ‘great work ethic’ by one of his fans, so no fear parents as they’ll be no Dewey Finn antics in the classroom. To support Dan you can check out the Dan Hull Music Facebook page.
