Dan HL is most noted for his crisp, soulful, unique voice and his ability to write songs that are both honest and singable. He also plays guitar and harmonica, so you can call him a multi-instrumentalist of sorts. Throughout his musical career, Dan has shared the stage with many notable artists. He's been the frontman for Dear Havanah, performing with acts that include Alan Evans of Soulive, and Blackthought of the Roots. Miko and the Musket’s selftitled EP is a demonstration of how seven musicians, all of whom draw influences from genres as disparate as folk and R&B, might come to a common musical agreement. Fronted by principal songwriter Miko de Leon and comprised of Mike Steinmetz (lead guitar), Peter Longofono (bass), Brandon Ellis (cello), Chris Kinlow (drums/percussion), Molly McAdoo (vocals), and Lannon Killea (vocals), the septet has found a way to incorporate a variety of musical nuances into a single collaborative outfit with the new EP.
