Rising South-East Queensland country rock singer-songwriter Dan Henwood returns with a gritty, energetic and high-octane track that screams to be spun on full volume. “Back Into Gear” is about heading out on a road trip with the boys, packing the swags and pushing the limits where you gotta get your mate to come rope you out, back into gear.

“I’m so stoked to finally be sharing this new single, “Back Into Gear”. Growing up with country music and mates who would take me out for the weekend inspired this song and the passion and joy that comes with it, I just knew I had to write one for the country folks out there! Looking forward to going back to my roots with his one with a touch of fiddle and guitar”

Dan Henwood is a 2x graduate of the CMAA Junior Academy. Drawing inspirations from artists such as Lee Kernaghan and The Wolfe Brothers, Dan successfully captures a traditional country sound with a modern country rock twist. His skill has taken him on the road through many new towns as a session guitarist which recently included a performance at Deni Ute Muster with Zara Lindeman. Dan has also performed alongside The Wolfe Brothers where he has been invited to play guitar at numerous shows.

A recent finalist in all categories in the Country Music People’s Choice Awards, Dan is currently writing new material which he is excited to be bringing to Australian audiences in 2024.

Dan Henwood’s new single ‘Back Into Gear’ is out to radio on Monday 16th October and out on digital platforms on Friday 20th October.
