Dan Mullins is a Sydney-based singer/songwriter, broadcaster, podcaster and writer. He has more than 40 years' experience as a live performer at venues across Australia and overseas.
Dan is a storyteller, a six-string troubador with soaring vocals and lilting melodies. He’s played thousands of gigs, non-stop weekend after weekend, year after year.
He released the single, Somewhere Along the Way (the Camino Song) after walking 1000 kilometres across Europe on the Camino de Santiago, the Way of St James. Dan was walking in the footsteps of millions of pilgrims before him. Their energy delivered the song straight to his heart.
The ensuing album 'Duende' spent more than a month at #2 on the ARIA Country charts and reached the top 40 of the ARIA Album chart.
The video for Somewhere Along the Way (the Camino Song) has more than 100,000 views.
His podcast, 'My Camino' features over 330 interviews with pilgrims from all over the world. People tell their stories of love and life, sharing their motivations, fears and hopes. The podcast has achieved more than one million downloads.
In early 2023, Dan contracted a virus and lost his voice. He was told he would never sing again. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Dan knew if he wanted it bad enough, he'd overcome the hardship and one day sing again.
He undertook speech therapy and learned to speak again - and is now learning to sing again.
It's going to be a magical journey from heartache to triumph .....and you're going to hear all about it. Dan is taking this sabatical as an opportunity to write a brand new two-hour show called 'Storyteller' and it will also be the name of his new album due in 2024.
He'll be back behind the microphone by Christmas 2023.
Somewhere Along the Way (the Camino Song)
Dan wrote this song after walking 1000ks across Europe last year on the ancient and mystical Camino de Santiago. It's now available on my new album - Duende.
BONUS TRACK ON DUENDE THE ALBUM
The 1981 John Denver / Placido Domingo hit Perhaps Love, features Australian tenor superstar Mark Vincent. Dan and Mark met on a trip to perform for drought and flood-affected farmers in far northwestern Queensland. They struck up a friendship and Mark offered to sing a song on Dan's new album.
