If Dan Hill has a calling card... Well, it could easily be his most recognizable song: 'Sometimes When We Touch'.
That ballad was a huge hit. And if imitation is the greatest form of flattery, Dan should be pretty flattered. That song's been covered by Tina Turner, Rod Stewart, Engelbert Humperdinck, and even Manny Pacquiao, arguably the best boxer in the world. He even covered it on Jimmy Kimmel.
Dan started writing songs young. He was just fourteen, and by seventeen, he was playing professionally. Over the years, he's won five Junos, and a Grammy for producing a track for Celine Dion. Dan's also been part of the Canadian benefit single 'Tears Are Not Enough.' And remember the first 'Rambo' movie 'First Blood'? Dan sang the theme song.
Last year, he published 'I Am My Father's Son', a memoir about his troubled relationship with his dad - a renowned human rights pioneer. And now, Dan is releasing his first album in more than ten years. It's called 'Intimate.'
