Edge-of-your-seat performances and skillful songwriting so rife with nip-and-tuck and derring-do, it makes all others seem namby pamby by comparison. ”

— (said of SongLand, including Dan Pelletier, New MIddle Class, Joe GIacoio and Carla Ulbrich) Rich Benson, Bellmore, NY

Dan Pelletier’s songs -- loaded with equal parts pain, hope and humor – touch the tender, secret corners of your soul. ”

— Marilyn Rea Beyer, WUMB, Boston, MA

Project Name

 

Sit for an hour with Dan Pelletier and you’ll walk away chuckling, shaking your head, a little choked up and a little joyful.   He will show you himself, yourself, your lover, your family and friends  and quite a few characters you may not know, but will instantly recognize.  They jump out of his songs full of beauty and blemishes, brilliance and foolishness, insanity, humor, intensity and tenderness.
