Dan McVeigh’s career has taken him from one part of Canada to the other. He has performed from Alberta to Newfoundland and everywhere in between to enthusiastic audiences. He started out as a keyboard player/lead vocalist in a number of Top 40/Country music groups before working on his career as a solo artist. McVeigh released his first CD (Love & Bridges) in 2001 after numerous requests from people who wanted to buy a CD after seeing him perform his live show.

Dan grew up in Renfrew, Ontario and played in local bands where he started writing songs at age 17 and has 5 Billboard songwriting awards to his credit as well as finishing 4th in the Canadian Country Music Hall Of Fame Songwriting Competition. He has also won 3 honorable mentions in the NSAI/CMT Song contest.
Dan was recognized for his work in the arts community from the City of Brampton with a 2001 Arts Acclaim Award.

McVeigh's  latest CD is  called “Drove” which has garnered great reviews from Country Music News, which said “He certainly does impress with his songwriting, and his vocal work here is also a step up”. Country Jukebox from Germany says “An album like “Drove” couldn’t be better. He leaves a good feeling for friends of Canadian country music with his Nashville sounding album”. McVeigh achieved national radio airplay with his first single “You Are All I Dream Of”. The song went to #1 on Canada’s leading country music internet station, “The Country Edge”. Since releasing the CD, McVeigh is getting airplay across Europe in Germany, France, The Netherlands and Romania. Dan's songs have been recorded by a number of Canadian artists such as Debbie Nelson & Miranda Jackson on Royalty Records and recently by , Valerie Raymond, Myra Leblanc and Lana Gaile. Dan performs at writer’s nights throughout Ontario and in Nashville, Tennessee by himself or with his band “North of 49”. Dan has had the pleasure of performing on stage with artists like Victoria Banks, Tim Taylor, Diane Chase, Gil Grand, Colin Amey, Jason Barry, Barry Brown, Bruce Michael Miller and Wendell Ferguson.

Since 1994, Dan has been involved with the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), which is the world's largest songwriter organization. He is the lead coordinator for the Toronto NSAI Chapter for the past 14 years. He has coordinated NSAI’s Tin Pan North Songwriters Festival (in Toronto), which is now in its 11th year. Dan owns and operates Play It Again Dan Music, a digital recording studio and music publishing company. Dan's studio produces songwriter demos and CD's for both himself and other songwriter/artists.
