March 2020 saw Western Europe, the US, and much of the rest of the world react to a global pandemic – a novel coronavirus called COVID-19 swept the globe after starting in China in January 2020. As the attempts to contain the pandemic, and manage cases across nations, many countries, cities, counties, and states imposed self-isolations and self-quarantines – asking, and ordering, people to stay home to prevent them for catching, and/or spreading the virus. Every event from sports to cinema, theater to music and concerts was postponed or canceled – the Olympics, football, Broadway, Snake Oil & Harmony Tour, motor racing, NBA etc. Schools were closed. Workplaces were closed and many businesses (including mine) laid off hundreds of thousands of workers. As I write this, the US and UK are in the early stages of this self-isolation.

And this makes for an interesting reason to have a Dan Reed solo album. Except it’s not really an official album of any kind. After postponing the Snake Oil & Harmony tour, Dan Reed took to his Facebook starting on March 21st 2020, and played acoustic versions of his solo songs and DRN songs, taking requests and ideas.

So, this ‘album’, is basically a list of the songs played during this unprecedented time period that we are living through right now.

Here are links to the videos, and what Dan had to say about each song:

  • Let It Go

Good afternoon from Prague! Last week I received a message that our song ‘Let it Go’ was good therapy for someone dealing with stress during this worldwide hibernation so I’ve recorded an acoustic version for anyone wishing to zone out on a song about turning pain in to positivity through communing with our loved ones ❤

  • Candlelight

Thank you for all the love and positive thoughts about the last musical video of ‘Let it Go’ posted on Saturday 🙂 I’ve decided to post a new vid every couple days or so in light of the world hibernating for good reason and bring some live performances to you. I had a request for my song ‘Candlelight’ so here it is. Coming up in a couple days fulfilling the requests for the DRN track ‘Halfway Round the World’ and a solo track ‘Indestructible’ after that. Will try to continue on this path until the lockdown is over, so requests are most welcome and wishing everyone a healing time at home with your loved ones or in solitude ❤

  • Halfway Around The World

Episode 3 of ‘Musical Vibrations for Home Hibernations’. An ancient DRN track called ‘Halfway Round The World’ requested by our good friend David Ungar. This is for you, brother, and for all those who are currently separated from their loved ones by the global shutdown. This song was written in 1987 before I had ever crossed an ocean. The irony is I now have a family on the other side of the planet from our hometown of Portland, Oregon 🙂

Wishing everyone strength and insight from this challenging days!

The fourth song in the series, has a truly heartbreaking realization of when the ‘global’ situation affects people in the DRN family directly

Recorded this song last evening for our good friend Gavin Perrett who lost his mother this weekend to the virus. With his blessing I am posting this in the name of Christine Perrett, who left this world all too soon, and for all those who knows and loves Gavin… a truly beautiful soul, son, brother and husband. We are beside you.
