South African singer-songwriter and guitarist Dan Patlansky is set to release his new album “Dear Silence Thieves” in the UK on Monday, April 27th. The album will coincide with a special London album launch showcase concert at London’s Borderline venue on the same day.  Tickets for The Borderline show are available from and the 24 hour box office – 0844 478 0898.

“Dear Silence Thieves” was recently Voted #1 Blues Rock Album 2014 by “Blues Rock Review’s Top 20 Blues Albums of 2014 poll. Other artists featured in the poll include The Black Keys, Rival Sons, Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Walter Trout, Philip Sayce, and many more big names from the blues rock music scene.

In February 2014, Patlansky supported Bruce Springsteen in front of 64.000 people at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on his High Hopes tour. Personally approved by Springsteen as support act, this was the biggest audience Patlansky had ever played to.

Never far from likeminded genius, guitarist, singer/songwriter and globally respected purveyor of the blues, Patlansky, is hailed as one of the world’s finest blues-based storytellers of his generation.

Ever since his debut album, Standing At The Station, followed by his 2004 major label (Blue Note, EMI produced) masterstroke True Blues, Dan Patlansky has immersed himself in blues rock music.
