The Swankiest College Experience

Dan SwankDan Swank (2017) loves music. He’s a singer, songwriter and guitarist with the look and sound that channels the Beach Boys.

He comes to Westminster College from Kiski High School and his hometown of Apollo, Pa. While he’s comfortable in front of the camera performing, he’s developing his style behind the camera as well as a producer, videographer and storyteller. However, just before the 2014 holiday break, he created a music video for his cover of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

Screen Shot 2014-12-21 at 7.47.27 PM“I recorded the song with my friend Dan Blake. Dan records all of the music that I release publicly. I had the idea to do a Christmas song and have yourself a merry little Christmas stood out to me as one that could turn out really well. After I got the final mix of the song back, I decided I wanted to make a Christmas themed video to go along with it. I brought the idea to my friend Derek Hughes, and we went into the city and shot the whole thing in about couple of hours.”
