Lead singer/writer for indie electro-pop duo Gamble & Burke. My specialty is soulful vocals with a hooky, pop vibe. I love layering harmonies & hooks just right. Plus, I'm a versatile keys player. Have been featured on recordings from Kitsuné, Vicious, Monstercat & Sidekick to name a few. I'll nail every vocal til your happy with it. Lets go.
I can be heard on Gamble & Burke songs, as well as many other G&B collabs released by EDM acts Rave Radio, Disco Despair, MGNS, Case & Point, TJH87, Boris Dlugosch. G&B received radio play on BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM London, College radio in the U.S., and were championed by DJ’s such as Tiësto, Benny Benassi and Kissy Sellout.
I can either write a topline to your existing track, create a vocal arrangement for your song (track my vocals for you, which you can use with my voice, or to track your own vocals to as a guide) or play piano and or keys on your track. I studied piano at Berklee and have a very versatile feel. Also, my sounds include the best from Nord, Arturia and more. I can work in any genre with smart sensitivity toward that genre, but my specialty genre's are Soul/R&B and EDM.

Dan’s got an incredible ear for detail and nuance when it comes to composing and arranging vocal hooks and motifs. Knows how to give songs the optimal levels of sauce 🔥 highly recommended
Had the honor of working with Dan on a couple of songs and learned so much from him in such a short amount of time. Dan is a true musical genius and can bring any song/idea to the next level, especially when it comes to perfecting vocals & melodies. Love working with him!
I really love working together, Dan has a really wonderful voice and he’s very professional!! It’s a cool guy, and a great writer!!
I’ve co-written a handful of toplines with Dan and I can honestly say he is one of the best songwriters I’ve ever worked with. His ear for catchy melodies is unmatched and his vocals are incredible! Not to mention he’s a total sweetheart. Dan is super fun to work with—he’s kind, funny, communicative, professional, and can write in a multitude of different styles. Highly recommend his services
Honestly, Dan is one of the best musicians I have ever worked with. He can adapt his style to fit any genre and really understands different musical styles. He can also sing VERY well. If you pick Dan, you won't get anything cookie-cutter or "just average."

Interview with Dan Burke (Gamble & Burke)
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill(s) is melody writing, vocal tone and harmony layering.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I believe I bring memorable and genuine soulful songwriting to any song I work on. Great melody, interesting and sincere lyrics and pro vocals. Also, background harmony layering.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: In writing, I usually settle on a title or subject matter and write a few lyric lines to build from. From there I try to develop the melody so the lyrics don't box in the tune too much. Melody and hooks are super important imo. I always track my melody ideas as I go in case I stumble on a dope line and don't wanna miss it.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use a Warm Audio WA-47 Tube condenser mic with UA Apollo Twin interface. I record in Logic Pro. Nord Stage is my main keyboard though I have an extensive assortment of plug-ins for key/synth sounds. I record in a large wood-paneled room that is well sound treated.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Some of my top inspirations vocally and melodically are The Weeknd, Justin Timberlake, Miguel, Troye Sivan, Harry Styles, John Legend, Mayer Hawthorne, Prince. Production-wise SG Lewis, Cosmo's Midnight, Calvin Harris, Mark Ronson, Poolside, Chromeo
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Writing toplines for various EDM artists. The style I've been most successful writing to is the more chill trop house side of EDM as well as the more hip hop infused future bass feel.
