Dan Croll – Sweet Disarray

As an undergrad at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, Dan Croll was not only lauded with myriad awards, but also chosen as one of just eight students to have a one-on-one with founder Paul McCartney. He’s no doubt a great student, one well-versed in technique, music theory, and his pop forebears: He cites not just the Beatles, but also Paul Simon, James Taylor, and De La Soul as heroes. Perhaps that’s why it’s no surprise that his debut LP reads more like a college thesis designed to satiate a panel of professors than it does an original document. Croll, like most students, is too immersed in his influences to think beyond them.
