Dan learned to play the guitar at age 11. After honing his craft in local venues and gaining a devoted following, Dan’s talent caught the attention of several Nashville producers. He began recording his original songs in Nashville with some of the same studio musicians and producers who were responsible for creating many of the songs that shaped him as an artist.


Dan released "A Country Mile" in August of 2021 which features 6 songs that showcased his writing and singing abilities. Piet Levy of Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had this to say about Lepien’s debut release: “A lot more heart, character, and twang than most music coming out of Music Row these days.”
