They also worked in advertising writing original jingles. PENNEY recording musicians included Chet McCraken (DOOBIE'S), Mike and Jeff Porcaro (TOTO), Ross Valory (JOURNEY) and Greg Erico (SANTANA), to name but a few.

Dan left the music business for twelve years to raise a family, although he continued to write music and perform. He also acquired air transport pilot and instructor certificates and worked in real estate, sales, and production and inventory management.

Dan's recent marriage to Elizabeth coincided with the revival of his writing and musical career. The duo has completed multiple scripts and are working on another, as well as a treatment for a television series. Dan is re-releasing older work and busy writing new songs for film projects. Dan is licensed through BMI, and owns two companies, Penmad Music and Intent Music.

Dan is the father of a daughter, Moriah, and a son, Jackson, and the grandfather of Trevor Daniel, born in 2008. He enjoys working on his family farm in Randolph, NH, as well as skiing, kayaking, photography and lying on the beach--during rare downtime.
