What can you say about Dan Knudsen? Lots, actually. Here are several things, in no particular order.
When we're playing a show together, I love giving Dan a big introduction. It helps the crowd know how to love him.
Dan writes songs of such innocence that it defeats the cynacism that otherwise discolors my own art and worldview, and I don't think I am the only one that he gets to in that way.
Dan is the Portland YMCA's custodial ace.
Dan is a man of faith. If you didn't know that already, you will know it after hearing this record.
Without any doubt, Dan is a favorite among local musicians. Not cult favorite, either, but favorite.
Dan wrote the best song ever about sharks.
Dan would never hurt you.
"We Are Not Alone," the Dan song that my band covered [on this album], was the first song I ever heard Dan play. What a song, too.
Nobody, and I mean nobody, works harder pushing their music than Dan Knudsen. Ten seconds after you meet him he's trying to sell you a CD. If pimping had another name it might be Dan Knudsen, because Dan is all business, all the time.
You can see a Dan Knudsen show. He's always playing around Portland, at Strange Maine, or the late, great Granny's Burritos.
If you've never heard Dan before, you have no idea what you're in for.
If you have purchased this record, Dan now considers you a fan. Congratulations.
Every year my band and I host Brucefest, a fundraising tribute to Springsteen around the Boss' birthday. Dan has played each one, dressing up like Bruce and slaying the crowds with his high lonesome take on My Hometown and Brilliant Disguise.
He's got a new album of original songs coming out in 2008.
The Dan Knudsen juggernaut will not be stopped. He's a hell of a guy, and a hell of a songwriter. But before I go, I do want to clear one thing up about our friend, Dan Knudsen. People ask me all the time. They stop me on the streets. They approach my table at restaurants, and pester me in waiting rooms. A fevered populace with just one burning question on their minds, they come up to me and say, "Hey, Wormwood, you know Dan Knudsen, right? Let me ask you, what's he keep in that fanny pack?"
Well, you know what? I'll tell you what he keeps in the fanny pack.
That's where Dan keeps the magic.
