All shows are headline shows apart from the Tote shows where Dan will be performing 2 or 3 songs each night
Presented by Leaps and Bounds Music Festival, PBS FM and Beat.

Dan Brodie is one of two solo Melbourne based artists performing multiple shows in small venues which they have not played before at the request of Leaps and Bounds Music Festival programmers, celebrating the many live music venues within the City of Yarra offering live music every night of the week. Emily Ulman is also playing a series of shows for Leaps and Bounds Music Festival July 4 – 20.

It is time for Dan Brodie to get out of his sandbox, focus on his music and go on the road. Over the last two years Dan Brodie has only played three shows, so it is time for the acclaimed Melbourne musician to go on tour. At the beginning of 2013 Dan Brodie was all set to release his fifth album, Deep Deep Love when he was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Dan spent most of 2013 undergoing heavy chemo and radiation treatment, he finally launched Deep Deep Love in March this year, one year after initially planned.

Deep Deep Love is one of Dan’s finest releases to date and contains eleven songs he wrote over fifteen years in various locales, both overseas and closer to home. Due to his health, Dan hasn’t been able to support the release nearly enough with live shows. This is about to change. Dan is in remission and will embark on some rock’n rehabilitation and go on tour as part of the Leaps and Bounds Music Festival presented by the city of Yarra. But we won’t be sending Dan too far, there will be no long drives or flights, and he’ll be saving money on accommodation by returning home every night. Over 17 days in July Dan will be playing five headline shows in intimate venues in Fitzroy, Collingwood and Richmond which includes Grumpy’s Green (July 4), the Owl & the Pussycat (July 10), the Standard (July 16), the Labour In Vain (July 17) and the Wilde (July 20) as well as participating in two mega Living Legends line ups at the Tote (July 12 & 13).

“Chemo was brutal, I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, but I kind of skipped having the ‘why me?’ conversation with myself and just got on with it. Somewhere during the course of my treatment I realised that there are two worlds — the world inhabited by healthy people and the world of people who have chronic illnesses, which is a world of untold suffering and misery. I feel very lucky to be on the other side of it now and I’m glad be able to quote Mark Twain and say that ‘Rumours of my demise have been greatly exaggerated,’” said Dan Brodie.
