Well, every time rock ’n’ roll stumbles or hits a pothole, someone comes along to breathe new life and spirit into its lungs.
Dan Bettridge, at all of 21 years old, knows his Stax from his Motown, his Sun from his Chess Records, and understands that it’s all about singing straight from the middle of his own bruised heart. He’s a blue-eyed soul singer: Van Morrison, if he’d come from Ogmore-By-Sea in the Vale Of Glamorgan. And like Van, he’s much more than the sum of his influences; in Dan’s case, mostly gathered from his parents’ record collection.
