“Sometimes When We Touch,” which Dan co-wrote with legendary songwriter Barry Mann, turned into the “mother of all covers,” most recently having been recorded by boxing champ Manny Pacquiao. Originally earning Dan a Grammy nomination for best male vocal performance, the song enjoyed renditions by singers from every continent, in every style, and was translated into several languages. Dan later received his Grammy award for co-producing an album for then-little-known Canadian artist Celine Dion.
Other hits that he wrote and recorded include “Can’t We Try,” “Never Thought (That I Could Love),” and “I Fall All Over Again.” In more recent years, he has concentrated heavily on songwriting for other vocalists and continues to enjoy live engagements in Canada, the US, Southeast Asia, and elsewhere. “Intimate,” Dan’s latest studio CD release, has earned tremendous reviews worldwide. A special version of “Intimate” was also created for Dan Hill fans in Asia, to include songs he wrote for and were recorded by other artists: “In Your Eyes,” “I Do (Cherish You),” “Seduces Me,” and more.
