Happy New Year to all of you Dane Clark Band fans! Much good news to impart to you all as the snowy season begins. All of the Dane Clark album projects; “Dane Clark” (1st album), “Sad Goodbye To Mr. Sunshine”, “No Apologies”,” Postcards From The Hard Road” and the brand new release “Wide Open Heart” are available worldwide on CD Baby, iTunes and virtually every other internet music outlet. If there are any of these projects you don’t own, download them today!

Also, the music video for “Yesterday’s Man” is finally finished. Make sure to check it out on the Video page. Special thanks to Samantha George for seeing this through.

We are currently booking festivals and shows for 2015, so stay tuned for upcoming shows. Right now I am with the other Mellencampers rehearsing for the “Plain Spoken” tour of 2015. Hope to see all of you at one of those shows sometime this summer.

As of this posting there are 2 albums worth of Dane Clark recordings in progress. One is a kind of psychedelic album featuring a duet with my good friend, the legendary Donovan, as well as a tune featuring the guys from Moby Grape. Really cool and unique stuff.

The other batch of songs I’ve written with Nashville songwriters like the legendary Fred Koller (of ‘Angel Eyes’ fame) and the fantastic Antoinette Oleson. These are more in line with the Americana leanings of the last couple of projects. Going to try to finish both up this year.

Keep watching for those shows that will be popping up throughout the year. We are all looking forward to seeing you!!

Heartfelt hello to all of our Dane Clark Band fanatics out there! This has been a long, cold busy winter for us! I finished work on the new John Mellencamp album in late January. I think longtime fans and casual listeners will really enjoy this one! Look for it to be released in early fall.

The Dane Clark Band has a new project titled “Wide Open Heart” we are gearing up to release early this summer. It was mixed by Grammy award winner Ben Fowler and mastered by Hank Williams at Mastermix in Nashville. We have had incredibly good response to this group of songs from everyone who has had a sneak preview! Special thanks goes to executive producer John Vickery for his loyalty and support.

We have taken a few months off to regroup, rehearse and prepare to bring “Wide Open Heart” to this wide open country! We are just now starting to book summer and fall shows so check the Upcoming Shows section of this page for updates.

We are especially excited for the Kokomo show, playing for real American heroes. Last year 30,000 people were there. They deserve respect and honor. They like some good Americana rock as well!

In the past 10 years we have shared the stage with the Gin Blossoms, Rick Derringer, Donovan. The Bob and Tom Band, Steppenwolf and countless other national, regional and local acts. Thanks for your support my friends!

Check the audio player on this page for two new songs from our soon to be released 5th album for your listening pleasure. See you soon!  Dane
