Mosquito-B is the brainchild of Quebec-born Dan Moisan. Author. Songwriter. Musician. Recording / performing artist. Advertising / marketing wiz. Entrepreneur. One of these titles would be enough for one person. Dan has integrated all of them.
The choices we make define who we are. in an effort to sidestep the lifestyle of a musician, Dan started his own advertising agency where he could give full play to creative and commercial instincts. This self-taught musician almost managed to dodge the musical elephant in the room.
Dan founded MOSQUITO-B in 1998. By 2001 he had released his debut album, 'SI J'TE DIS' which featured his first-ever original recording, 'PAS LA PEINE. The CD was well-received at radio and was followed with a second LP, .LE SPARADRA. (Bandage) which generated five radio-active singles including a No. 1 hit on CBC's 'Bande à part.' The success caught the attention of Quebec singer, ELLE who covered Dan's song, .AMOUR. which captured another radio hit.
Dan then teamed-up with producers Marc Durand (Men Without Hats, The Box) and Fred St-Gelais (Marie Mai and some Canadian Idols). The collaboration resulted in Dan's first English album, 'RAID' and featured 'LOVE AFTER ALL' which was remixed by DJ Dan D-Noy as the 'The Peakafeller Remix' and broke in clubs worldwide, putting Mosquito-B on the international map.
Next came a 6-song EP, 'KILLING MARS' mixed and co-produced by Paul Northfield (Rush, Dream Theater, Ozzy) and released in the UK in a limited-run collectors' vinyl edition, in response to the growing demand there. The full-length CD 'KILLING MARS' followed to critical and popular acclaim.
Mosquito-B features Dan (bass and vocals), Stephanie Gagnon (guitar) and Jean-Michel Perrier (drums). They have opened for notables such as Honeymoon Suite, The Box, The Korgis and Saga and have earned a reputation of commanding encores in opening slots - which is very rare, if not unique.
Mosquito-B's were the sole artist representing Canada at the UK's official celebration of John Lennon's 70th birthday in 2010. They have since toured the UK five times and are now ramping up for a sixth tour, which includes a date at the Hampton Pool Summer Concerts series on July 20, 2013 where they perform an unprecedented 70-minute set opening for British pop stars, ABC (The Look of Love.)
Dan is a best-selling author, having penned a series of French fiction which will also be published in English and is under consideration for adaptation to the screen.
Dan is currently working on his next CD, entitled, 'USE LESS U.' He adds, . It deals with not using others and explores the process of individualization, learning how to love yourself before you can love others. In a play on words, it is also about using less 'You's'.
