For over thirty years, Dan Navarro has written, sung, played and acted his way through a rich and varied career…
Dan started his career as a songwriter, often with Eric Lowen, for artists as diverse as Pat Benatar (the Grammy-nominated “We Belong”) ,The Bangles, Jackson Browne, Keb’ Mo’, Dave Edmunds, The Temptations, Dionne Warwick, Dutch superstar Marco Borsato, The Triplets, Austin outlaw legend Rusty Weir and many more...
In the ‘90s, he recorded and toured with Lowen in the acclaimed acoustic duo Lowen & Navarro until Eric’s retirement in 2009. Dan has since transitioned into a growing solo career, increasingly in demand on the national concert circuit...
When not on the road, Dan is busy wearing several other hats. He is a voice actor in major motion pictures such as Happy Feet, The Lorax and Ice Age to name a few; in numerous television series – currently on Family Guy, American Dad; and hundreds of national commercials – Toyota, Coca-cola, McDonalds – the list goes on and on.
Right now, you can hear Dan as the character CHAKAL, the ‘rampaging, metal-encased monster’ in the animated, fantasy-comedy The Book of Life.
On the side, he serves on the boards of SAG-AFTRA, Folk Alliance, The Levitt Pavilions LA and the ALS Assoc. AND he contributes countless hours in DC talking on issues of intellectual property, copyright and performer’s rights on behalf of NSAI, AFTRA,NARAS,BMI,SoungExchange and others
After 22 years and 12 albums with Lowen & Navarro, Dan released “Live at McCabes” in 2009, Dan is finishing up work on his first studio album of new material “Shed My Skin”.
...and, if all that weren’t enough, he is the father of an 18-year-old son in college in NY and a known abuser of acoustic guitars.
