About Dan Olsen

Dan spent the first 19 years of his life in Thorshavn the capital of a small country called the Faroe Islands which has a population of only 50,000. His mum signed him up for classical guitar playing and when he was 13 years old he entered a musical school. At 16 he was exposed to the likes of Jack Johnson; and this easy laid back singer-songwriter style inspired him to add singing to his own guitar playing.

He moved back to the Faroe Islands to play professional football for a year and a half before moving to Queensland in Australia to finish his Business degree in 2013.
