- ABOUT -

"ENJOY THIS. WE DID." - ALTERNATIVE PRESS MAGAZINE

"DAN'S MUSIC IS BLUNTLY HONEST - AND A GREAT OPENING SALVO FROM THE GUITAR WORLD'S LATEST POTENTIAL STAR IN WAITING" - LEON TK

"SUGARMAN OFFERS SOMETHING THAT IS BRASH, ORIGINAL, AND TRULY PROGRESSIVE" - SCREAMER MAGAZINE

DAN SUGARMAN IS A 28 YEAR OLD INSTRUMENTAL GUITARIST, FROM LOS ANGELES - WITH PASSION, PURPOSE, AND A MESSAGE. WE ARE ALL IN CONTROL OF OUR LIVES, AND THROUGH MUSIC, WE CAN BECOME THE ALCHEMIST OF ANYTHING THROWN OUR WAY - TURNING A DARK PAST, INTO A BRIGHT FUTURE. WE CAN ALL BECOME A BEACON OF LIGHT IN A DARK PLACE. 

 

SUGARMAN'S PROLIFIC UNDERTAKINGS WITHIN THE PROGRESSIVE METAL ARENA HAVE EARNED HIM A PLACE IN THE HEARTS OF ALL THOSE WHO LOVE HEAVY INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC.

 

WITH THE RELEASE OF HIS DEBUT INSTRUMENTAL RECORD "CENTERSUN", AND IMMEDIATE ACCEPTANCE AND POSITIVE FEEDBACK FROM MAJOR MEDIA OUTLETS AND THE MASSES, HE WAS ONLY JUST GETTING STARTED. 

 

IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT DAN HAS A UNIQUE WAY OF COMMUNICATING WITH HIS INSTRUMENT - AND WITH GOOD REASON. AFTER EARNING HIS PLACE IN THE METAL COMMUNITY AS THE LEAD GUITARIST AND SONGWRITER FOR THE INTERNATIONALLY TOURING BAND AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK - HE DECIDED TO LEAVE THE BAND IN 2016 IN ORDER TO TAKE CARE OF HIS MOTHER, WHO WAS TERMINALLY ILL WITH BRAIN CANCER.

 

IN THAT TIME PERIOD, DAN BEGAN HIS CAREER AS A SOLO INSTRUMENTALIST, TRANSMUTING THE NEGATIVE ENERGY HE WAS BOMBARDED WITH DAILY, IN ORDER TO TURN THAT DARKNESS INTO SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL, AND WITH MEANING.

SOON AFTER THE RELEASE OF "CENTERSUN", HE BEGAN HIS GREATEST ENDEAVOR YET - "INSIDE/OUT" - THE LIVING ALBUM. DAN BEGAN RELEASING ONE SONG PER MONTH TO HIS EXCLUSIVE PATREON MEMBERS IN A WAY THAT HAD NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE. IT WAS SUCH A UNIQUE OFFERING THAT HE WAS EVEN FEATURED IN AN ARTICLE ABOUT THE "LIVING ALBUM" ALONGSIDE KANYE WEST - DUE TO THE CUTTING EDGE NATURE OF HIS PROJECT.

 

SUGARMAN WENT THROUGH ALL OF THIS THIS IN ORDER TO PROVIDE AN OUTLET FOR THE INTENSE EMOTIONAL OUTPOURING OF MUSIC THAT WAS FLOWING THROUGH HIM. NOT JUST FOR HIMSELF, BUT FOR THE LISTENERS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF SPEAKERS. DAN BELIEVES THAT MUSIC IS A MIRROR - A REFLECTION OF THE ARTIST IS EMBEDDED IN THE MUSIC IN ORDER FOR THE LISTENER TO GET A GLIMPSE OF THEMSELVES IN THAT VERY SAME MIRROR.

 

THE LIVING ALBUM PORTION OF "INSIDE/OUT" WAS A HUGE SUCCESS - AND SUGARMAN USED THE FUNDS RAISED FROM THAT CAMPAIGN TO DONATE TO SEVERAL CHARITIES, INCLUDING THE NATIONAL BRAIN TUMOR SOCIETY, CHILDHOOD DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, SMILETRAIN, AND ALS RESEARCH. 

DURING THE MAKING OF THE 6TH SONG OF "INSIDE/OUT", ON OCTOBER 29TH 2017, TERI SUGARMAN PASSED AWAY PEACEFULLY IN HER HOME, SURROUNDED BY HER LOVING FAMILY. DAN VOWED TO MAKE HER PROUD, AND CONTINUE TO MAKE HER SMILE. DAN COMPLETED THE SONG IN DEDICATION TO HER MEMORY - "THE ART OF KNOWING".

 

THE TRAUMA OF SUCH AN EVENT SHOOK DAN TO HIS CORE, AND UNTIL RECENTLY, HAS BEEN UNABLE TO EVEN THINK ABOUT THAT ALBUM AND IT'S ULTIMATE PURPOSE. BUT WITH A NEW FOUND DRIVE AND PASSION FOR REACHING OUT AND CONNECTING WITH ALL THOSE WHO STRUGGLE, HE WANTS TO PROVE THAT WE CAN ALL BE THE ALCHEMIST OF OUR OWN LIVES BY TURNING ANY TRAUMA AND GRIEF INTO BEAUTY, AND LIGHT - BY BECOMING A BEACON OF LIGHT IN A DARK PLACE. 

 

"INSIDE/OUT" WILL BE RELEASED THIS YEAR WORLDWIDE, AND YOU CAN PURCHASE OR LISTEN TO ALL OF DAN'S MUSIC AT THE FOLLOWING PLACES LISTED BELOW.

"THERE'S A SENSE OF WONDER, BUT THERE IS ALSO A DRIVE...IT'S LIKE I'VE FALLEN AND HAVE TO MYSELF UP."

"ALONG WITH BEING HEAVY & TECHNICAL, THE UNIQUENESS OF THE LEADS ENGAGED ME AS A LISTENER"
