Music at Geraldine's ft. Dan Radin | Cello Pop

Time: 8:00pm - 9:30pm

Location: Geraldine's

Since moving to Austin, Texas in 2015, cellist Dan Radin has earned a reputation for being a go-to hired gun in the scene.  He’s backed The Voice contestants, played in bands opening for Grammy/Tony winners, and performed at official SXSW showcases.  This year, the cellist decided to reveal himself to the world as an equally-capable singer-songwriter with the release of his first solo album, “Romance for Antiheroes.”

Radin was introduced to cello lessons in 3rd grade through a school program, which subsequently thrust him into a comprehensive classical music education.  While in college, Radin began to sit in with folk bands and singer-songwriters, learning to leverage his relative pitch to play by ear and improvise cello solos like a lead guitarist.  He moved to Austin after graduation, where he’s since gigged aggressively (Radin estimates nearly 1000 performances).  To fill any gaps in his schedule, Radin began side-hustling as a guitarist/singer.

Gradually becoming more comfortable with a frontman role, the cellist decided it was time to share his own original music with the world.  Radin’s vision of cello-led acoustic rock prominently displays his singer-songwriter roots, garnering frequent comparisons to John Mayer and Dave Matthews.  Radin’s debut solo album, “Romance for Antiheroes,” is a collection of songs documenting failed relationships; however, at its core, the album is a coming out party for a shy cellist who has begun to come into his own as a full-fledged artist.
