South African blues rock guitarist and singer Dan Patlansky hits the UK to launch his new album Dear Silence Thieves this April.

We have two pairs of meet & greets and tickets to see Dan at The Greystones, Sheffield on Tuesday, April 28 with winners also receiving signed copies of Dear Silence Thieves.

Dan’s latest album has been earning him international recognition since its initial release last year. On December 3, 2014, Dear Silence Thieves was voted #1 on Blues Rock Review’s “Top 20 Blues Rock Albums of 2014” poll, beating the likes of The Black Keys, Rival Sons, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Paul Rodgers, Joanne Shaw Taylor and Joe Bonamassa to the coveted No.1 spot. On February 1, 2014, Patlansky opened for Bruce Springsteen at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg in front of 64,000 people. Springsteen was among a crowd of musicians watching Dan’s set from stage side (including Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello).
