Fate Said Nevermind
Fate Said Nevermind is the follow-up to Once Was Red, Dan May's critically acclaimed debut album. Featuring an eclectic mixture of swampy Louisiana guitar licks, bluesy piano, and the driving rhythm guitar which is the trademark of the band. Painted over this lush tapestry are the layered vocal harmonies that make the music so appealing and truly special. Elements of Americana Roots, Folk, Country, Rock, Jazz and Pop make this music hard to label, but so easy to love. Singer-songwriter Dan May's career path has taken more twists and turns than a corkscrew in a hurricane. He's worked as a grave-digger, television cameraman, short-order cook, nuclear missile security guard, sold clothing in a big and tall men's store, driven an ice cream truck, delivered furniture, wrote feature stories for a daily newspaper, unloaded trucks at an amusement park, and labored in a greenhouse. All before the age of 25. Then, while studying music composition in college, he inadvertently stumbled into an opera career that would see him singing with opera companies across the U.S. and Canada, and leaving a promising future as a singer-songwriter behind. Cut to 15 years later, and a vocal-chord surgery that left him no longer able to meet the demands of opera. Talk about a blessing in disguise. He is now back where he belongs, writing and performing his own songs, delivered in a voice that is as unique as it is interesting.
