Dan Melchior is a singer/songwriter/guitarist who grew up in Shepperton, Surrey, (just outside London), England and is often labeled a 'garage rock' musician. He has appeared on 30+ recordings as a solo performer, a collaborator with Billy Childish and Holly Golightly and as a member of Dan Melchior's Broke Revue.

Melchior has released 3 solo albums, and appeared on the Jandek tribute album 'Down in a Mirror'. His music continues to evolve and is very much a separate entity from some of his earlier blues based work, showing a definite influence of more experimental bands such as The Homosexuals and The Fall, as well as a healthy dose of absurdism of the very English type typified by the work of Vivian Stanshall and Syd Barrett.
