The Blue Danes News Room Archive and Profile
Formed after the breakup of the local alt-rock band Toast, ex-bassist Shaun Courbat and ex-guitarist Frank Hansen partnered with veteran drummer Skip Lowe (Billy Lee Janey Band) to form The Blue Danes.
Their name stems from an ironic blend of lead singer/songwriter Frank Hansen's melancholy melodies with his red and blue-blooded Danish upbringing.
Produced by Grammy Nominated Producer and Engineer Tom Tatman (Stone Sour), The Blue Danes sound has been compared to the Moody Blues, ELO, Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen and the Velvet Underground.
Hansen uses a combination of Midwestern Weltschmerz and Unconscious Babbling to craft stories of longing, fantasy and existential angst. The Blue Danes debut album "Invisible and Untouchable" was released in 2016.
