Dan Mangan is a two-time JUNO Award-winning and three-time Polaris Music Prize-nominated musician and songwriter. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia with his wife and two sons.

Mangan has toured extensively in North America, Europe & Australia. He hasplayed Glastonbury & Jimmy Kimmel Live, collaborated with David Grohl, sold out Massey Hall and scored acclaimed soundtracks for television (Netflix, AMC) and feature films. In 2017, he co-founded Side Door, a community marketplace platform for the arts that seeks to democratize and decentralize the entertainment industry by allowing non-traditional spaces to be venues.

Mangan’s 6th album, ‘Being Somewhere’, released in October 2022 and produced by Drew Brown (Radiohead, Beck), is an album that unfurls like an overdue conversation with a dear friend. It’s a combative plea for mercy from a manic world and its effects on the psyche. Forging sonics well beyond the tropes of modern folk music, the album features a global cadre of top tier musicians including Joey Waronker (Beck, Atoms for Peace), Jason Falkner (Beck, St. Vincent), Thomas Bartlett (The National, Taylor Swift), Dave Okumu (Arlo Parks, Adele) Mary Lattimore (Kurt Vile, Sharon Van Etten), & Broken Social Scene frontman Kevin Drew.

He sings with the soul of Woody Guthrie, if Woody Guthrie had listened to Godspeed.
