Dan Shafer was a contestant on Season 11 of The Voice and competed on Team Blake.
Dan was in several bands in his youth but put music on the backburner to support his family. In the late ’80s, Dan found a way to balance both worlds when he became a jingle man. He has written jingles for Transformers Gen 2, Aliens 3 the voice and Space Marines, BC Powder, Matchbox Lightning Key Cars, Pizza Hut We Deliver, Bryans Hot Dogs, Vintage Gourmet Ice Cream, Bealls Dept Stores, Coors, New England Telephone, and many more.
Music once again took a backseat when his son Jamie was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease and needed emergency surgery. During that time, Dan got a job in the funeral business to pay the medical bills. He currently gigs with a cover group called Classic Rock All Stars around Nashville and throughout Tennessee.
