About Dan + Shay
Warner Music Nashville’s new duo Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) are currently in the studio recording their debut album in Nashville, TN. The album, expected next year on Warner Bros. Records, will feature their newly released first single “19 You + Me.”
Meeting in December of 2012, Dan and Shay quickly hit it off with their musical similarities. The two began writing together and from those sessions their relationship grew to include performing together. From there, the duo discovered an infectious original sound all their own, mixing country rock/pop seamlessly throughout intimate power-ballads and stadium-worthy hits.
Born and raised in Natural Dam, Arkansas, Shay has been singing since he was a young child. At 14-years-old he fell in love with songwriting and at 16 began learning the guitar. He officially moved to Nashville last year but grew up frequently visiting and recording in Music City. Musical influences include Rascal Flatts, Dave Matthews Band, Usher and Kenny Chesney.
Dan was born and raised in suburban Wexford, Pennsylvania and has been writing and playing music since the age of 12. A Nashvillian since 2010, Dan has been on the local songwriting scene for several years. Musical influences range from Ryan Adams and Tom Petty to Kenny Chesney and Alison Krauss.
