We’re excited to be working with Dan Mangan again!

Dan Mangan is a two-time JUNO award-winning and two-time Polaris Music Prize-listed musician and songwriter. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia with his wife and two sons. He has released five studio LPs on Arts & Crafts, and toured extensively in North America, Europe and Australia. Dan also scored the feature film Hector And The Search For Happiness, starring Simon Pegg, as well as television shows for Netflix and AMC. In 2017, he co-founded Side Door, a community marketplace platform for the arts that seeks to democratize and decentralize the entertainment industry by allowing any space to be a venue.

Dan’s new single In Your Corner (for Scott Hutchison) is a direct response to the indie-rock anthem The Woodpile from Scotland’s Frightened Rabbit, and is dedicated to the outfit’s late and dearly missed songwriter, Scott Hutchison. With the lines ‘Leave a light on when it’s bad / We will congregate and make a plan / We’ll be in your corner’ Dan is replying to Hutchison’s question, ‘Will you come back to my corner? / Spent too long alone tonight’.

‘We’d only met once but Scott’s passing eviscerated me. He was my age and very close with several dear friends of mine,’ says Mangan. ‘Either he couldn’t see how deeply he was loved by the world, or he didn’t feel worthy of it. How come he could bring joy to so many people but not to himself? I remember weeping as I poured cereal for my boys that morning. This song came very quickly in the days that followed.’

This show takes place at Low Four Studio, the recording studio and venue on Deansgate Mews in the Great Northern.
