Dan Mangan Background
Canadian-born Dan Mangan grew up in a home surrounded by music. Never lacking for instruments to play, Mangan and his siblings dedicated much of their free time to music. Mangan was also inspired by the musical tastes of his parents, who kept a sorted collection of albums by artists like The Beatles and Nick Drake. In his formative teen years, Mangan founded a group known as the Basement Suite.
Four years later Mangan finished an EP he entitled All at Once. At the time, Mangan was a University of British Columbia student. To gain some exposure on a limited budget, Mangan had 500 copies made and sold or gave them away for free around the Vancouver area. In 2005, Mangan borrowed some money from the bank. And, with the help of some local artists, Mangan was able to cut Postcards & Daydreaming. Mangan issued the album on his own initially, peddling the effort on the Web and at live performances. A couple of years later, File Under: Music, an independent label, reissued the record. The album contained fresh artwork and an additional single, "Ash Babe."
In the spring of 2009, Mangan's record label dropped the Roboteering EP, which included tunes from Mangan's anticipated record, Nice, Nice, Very Nice. The album itself featured guest appearances from other Canadian musicians like Mark Berube, Veda Hille, Hannah Georgas, Justin Rutledge and more. That same year, Mangan took home the Verge Music Awards "Artist of the Year" honors. Mangan claimed other accolades as well, including the "iTunes Album Of the Year" award for Nice, Nice, Very Nice. He filled his mantle with even more awards for Nice, Nice, Very Nice, earning three Western Canadian Music Awards.
Richly blessed with the success of Nice, Nice, Very Nice, Mangan teaming up with other talents that materialized from the burgeoning experimental landscape in Vancouver. The newly cemented relationships culminated into Mangan's Oh Fortune - an LP that dropped in 2011. Globally, the album was loved by critics and fans alike. Oh Fortune was also the recipient of three Western Canadian Music Awards and a Juno Award.
These days, Dan Mangan sticks to a rigorous tour schedule and continues to work on original material. His latest effort is Club Meds (2015).

Of his road warrior lifestyle, Mangan said, "I think when you first start, it's all a fantasy. It's kind of a magical game of going on tour and you're with your friends and you're totally broke and you're making no money and you're doing it just because you love it so much. When it actually becomes your work, your career, it's a different thing. It stops being about 'going on tour' and becomes more about just figuring out how to have a real life amidst constantly traveling..."
