While growing up in Vancouver, songwriter Dan Mangan immersed himself in his parents’ record collection, paying special attention to albums
by Nick Drake and the Beatles. Folk and pop thus became two of his biggest influences, and Mangan combined both genres while writing his own
songs as a teenager. At 20 years old, he made his solo debut by releasing an acoustic EP, with the full-length Postcards and Daydreaming
following two years later. Postcards and Daydreaming was later released in America, leading Mangan to increase his touring commitments and
widen his fan base. In 2009, he returned with a second album, Nice, Nice, Very Nice.
