Dan Sartain

About Dan Sartain

An underground rock mainstay whose eclectic repertoire encompassed garage rock, rockabilly, blues, punk, pop, and electronics, Dan Sartain was a vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist whose music was rooted in rock & roll's past while reflecting a present-day mindset. Sartain first earned an audience during the garage rock revival of the 2000s, and his music appealed to garage fans, but he never strictly confined himself to that genre. Everything from mariachi music, TV western theme songs, and kitschy jazz informed his music along with rock of the '50s and '60s, while the influence of Suicide and the Ramones played major role in his latter-day work. 2003's Dan Sartain vs. The Serpientes was his breakthrough album, 2012's Too Tough to Live was a joyous, head-long dive into classic pogo punk, and 2016's Century Plaza found him experimenting with the sounds of vintage synthesizers.
