As a songwriter and producer I have had cuts with artists across the UK, Europe, USA and South America.

    I was so very fortunate to have found one of Dans songs “Learning To Let You Go” which I cute and released to critical and commercial success. This led to the placement of another track and then onto co-writing and producing songs on my debut album “No One Knows”
    To describe Dans talent it too difficult just listen to the songs he has written and produced to get an idea of the immense talent he has. I’m privileged to have worked with him and even more so to have secured him for a full sophomore album. Get this guy on the up because he is going to the top!! Can’t recommend enough.

    I have had the pleasure of working with Dan on a few projects. He is extremely professional, friendly and a very hard worker. The quality of the songs he produces are outstanding and far exceeds expectations. I have been blown away by his talent. I have worked with many producers in the past, but none compare to Dan's professionalism and ability to produce such high-quality songs. I would highly recommend Dan for any production job!

    Dan was a great positive surprise. This dude has the feeling for a HIT. Further he acted super professional and is one of the guys who never gives up, until the perfect song for this specific act is written. Really looking forward to work with him again. Thanks Dan 🙏

    As a songwriter I have worked with many terrific studios and producers in Nashville and LA. However, from the first song I had produced by Dan Scholes, it was immediately obvious that his mastery in understanding and building a song’s arc would connect powerfully with listeners on an emotional level. The results spoke for themselves, as the song was immediately signed by a major Nashville music publisher. I am so looking forward to our next project together.

    I was overjoyed with the production that came back from Dan. It completely transformed my record. He was understanding towards me as an artist and worked tirelessly to make sure I was happy with the end product. I would highly recommend his work to anybody looking to release high quality music.
