Dan Patlansky’s Introvertigo was voted one of the Top 20 Blues Rock Artists by Blues Magazine.
May 2016 saw the South African release of Dan Patlansky’s eighth studio album, entitled Introvertigo. “Introvertigo: The dizziness and disorientation felt by an introvert after spending more than 5 minutes with an extrovert.” – Urban Dictionary.
Introvertigo was written over two years – Patlansky immediately started writing this follow-up after 2014’s critically acclaimed Dear Silence Thieves (voted Best Blues Rock Album in 2014 by Blues Rock Review, USA). Introvertigo, similar to Dear Silence Thieves, is produced by Theo Crous and was recorded at Bellville Studios, Cape Town.
“Introvertigo describes a feeling I very often experience being an introvert. The concept behind the album is very much about my own insecurities. It’s about being an introvert in the music industry, my experiences in the industry and life in general. Even though the songs on the album have different topics and are not directly about being an introvert, It comes from an introvert’s point of view.”
Patlansky used his personal life experiences as inspiration for the album to ultimately marry good songs with guitar playing. Working with Theo Crous for the second time, he describes the process as more streamlined this time around, which allowed space for a more creative environment. “Fans can expect a unique brand of Blues Rock born out of guitar playing whilst striving for strong songwriting. I am very excited and proud of this album, and honestly feel this is my best release to date.”
Fresh off his November 2015 UK and European tour with Joe Satriani, and recently nominated as one of Classic Rock Magazine’s hotly tipped new artists of 2015, Dear Silence Thieves received non-stop accolades and praise. Patlansky was also voted Male Artist of the Year 2015 by Blues & Soul Magazine, #4 of 10 Best Rock Guitarists In The World by Total Guitar Magazine in December 2015, as well as one of the Top 20 Blues Rock Artists by Blues Magazine.
In February 2016, he received a nomination for Best International Solo Artist for the Planet Rock Radio ‘Rocks’ Awards. Introvertigo will be released on CD and will be available for purchase on iTunes and at all Dan Patlansky shows.
