Dan Israel is a longtime fixture on the Minneapolis music scene.

He received a 4-star review from the UK’s “Uncut” magazine for his 2007 album “Turning.” He has released 16 critically acclaimed albums, including his latest, 2020’s “Social Distance Anxiety Disorder,” which many critics and fans have praised as his finest record yet.
