Born and raised in a small seaside town in Wales, UK, Dan Bettridge has garnered critical acclaim in a relatively short time with the songs crafted in his rural cabin studio. Bettridge has toured with Band Of Horses and Jack Savoretti, performed at the famous Maida Vale Studios twice, once as Whispering Bob Harris’ ‘Favourite New Artist’, and played festivals throughout the UK, USA & Canada (including SXSW, AmericanaFest UK, Green Man). During the UK lockdown Dan was part of Bob Harris’s ‘All Stars’ project alongside Mark Knopfler, Rosanne Cash and Darius Rucker which premiered in Rolling Stone. He also hosted his own series of ‘Isolation Live’ interviews with a cross-section of music figures including Bob Harris, BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Fiona Stewart and Martyn Joseph.

The first half of 2021 saw Bettridge release long awaited new music in the form of his ‘Good People. Bad Habits.’ EP to critical acclaim and strong support from Apple Music and TIDAL, including an exclusive TIDAL Live Session. As Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s ‘Next Big Thing’, Dan’s live show is one not to miss.
