2013 proved to be a banner year for classic/alt rock band The Dan Sheehan Conspiracy. After releasing their sophomore album Are You Conspirienced? to worldwide acclaim, Sheehan and his co-conspirators spent the year rocking stages in the U.S., Ireland and U.K. both as headliners and as openers for personal heroes ranging from alt rockers Courtney Love and the Meat Puppets to Celtic folk legends Kíla. Conspirienced? garnered airplay around the world, from the North to South America, from Europe to Africa, and from Australia to New Zealand, charting nationally in the United States and being declared “Rock Album of the Year” by WHFR-FM (Dearborn, MI) music director Phil Maq.
2014 finds the Conspiracy working on their third release, the concept album Tales From Earth, Inc. which fuses rock with music from various parts of the world affected by what Sheehan calls “the rising culture of greed” as Sheehan and company continue their mission started in 2007 to “keep rock real in the 21st century.”
For those new to Sheehan and the DSC, here is your Quick Start Guide:
The DSC currently have two albums, The Dan Sheehan Conspiracy (2008) and Are You Conspirienced? (2013), both which have been aired on over 200 radio stations throughout the world and which have featured guest contributions from Patrick Moraz (Yes/Moody Blues/etc. etc.), Spencer Cobrin (Morrissey), Darrel Herbert (The Toadies) and Andy Krikun (Andy & the Rattlesnakes).
Prior to the DSC and in between their two albums, Sheehan has also led the alt-rock outfit Banter which released the discs Side One and Urban Pastures.
With the DSC, Banter and as a solo performer Sheehan has rocked legendary venues including the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, CBGB and the Knitting Factory in New York City, the Middle East in Cambridge, MA, Plush in Tucson, AZ and bars and clubs throughout Ireland and Britain. The DSC have performed at numerous festivals including the Texas Rockfest (Austin), the Galway Fringe Festival, the Manchester Americana Festival, the Red Gorilla Music Festival (Austin, TX), the Hell’s Kitchen Arts Festival (New York City), the Delaware & Raritan Canal Festival, and benefits such as Elephants for Autism (Atlantic City, NJ), Rockin’ the Commons (Fredonia, NY) and Mr. Beery’s Band Battle Against Cystic Fibrosis (Bethpage, NY).
The DSC albums are lauded by critics and fans for being timeless, multi-dimensional musical statements, displaying an eclectic mix of influences to convey a range of ideas and emotions rather than “sticking to formula” or following industry trends, featuring songs ranging from the modern classical guitar instrumental “Message to Jeremiah” to straight ahead rockers such as “See Kay” and “I’ll See You There” to the prog influenced “Epic Fantasy Adventure Song” and then back to the folk rock of “Rock Song.”
