Dan Croll Q&A

We asked the ever-so-talented multi-instrumentalist electro-boy, Dan Croll about some of his music-related favorites and inspirations. Go ahead and guess who Dan Croll calls a “god”.


RR: Why do you make music?

DC: Because I love it!


RR: What do you love about it?

–  It’s a great way of conveying emotions, life experiences, and scenarios.

– It’s an incredible feeling having somebody other than yourself connect with your music

– I get to travel the world with my friends meeting new people and seeing new places

– And because music is just incredible


RR: If you couldn’t make music, what would you do for a living?

DC: As a kid I played a lot of sport, mainly rugby, so maybe I’d be doing that. If not sport though, I’d still be doing something creative and hands on, maybe art or product design.


RR: What was the first concert you went to?

DC: I got dragged by my mum to go and see Craig David, but I rather enjoyed.


RR: What was the first record you bought?

DC: ‘Wheatus – Teenage Dirtbag’ on cassette


RR: What’s your fave record out right now and why?

DC: I’ve been thoroughly enjoying Kendrick Lamars ‘Good Kid, m.A.A.d city’. The album has this incredible narrative right the way through it, and the production on it is incredible.


RR: What’s your sad/mad/happy go-to song?


Sad: Anything by Simon & Garfunkel

Mad: Anything by Kvelertak

Happy: Beach Boys – Good Vibrations


RR: You are a multi instrumentalist. What instrument would you like to learn, next?

DC: Something a bit mad, maybe the harp or bagpipes.


RR: Liverpool has become a hot bed of new artists; why do you think that is?

DC: I think it’s mainly due to the size of the city, its pretty small and everybody knows everybody. This means there’s a real close connection between us all that allows us to share great music and collaborate. We all thrive off each other and help push each other forward.


RR: What are your sure fire crowd pleasing karaoke songs?


Whitney Houston – I wanna dance with somebody

Aha – Take on me

Queen – Don’t stop me now


RR: Did Paul McCartney give you any sage advice?


Sage the herb or Stage?

Sage: he did tell me how to make a mean sage and onion stuffing

Stage: No, he just sang a long to my songs


RR: Did you call him “sir”?

DC: I didn’t, I didn’t really call him anything, I was too star struck to speak for most of it.


RR: Who would you like to collaborate with and why?

DC: Paul Simon, because he’s a god.
