"You Ruin Every Holiday!" his mother yelled at Thanksgiving dinner.
Dan Pyle was a hyper child, the epitome of ADHD, and spent his childhood being "Raised on Ritalin." Growing up in Columbia, Maryland, he was exposed to a multicultural environment. His mother gave him his first acoustic guitar on his 16th birthday, and his first electric guitar that following Christmas. "Mom played piano for over 55 years, so I incorporate a lot of piano into my music as an ongoing tribute. I can always feel her with me when I'm composing a new piano piece."
Trying to find a similar artist can be a challenge, as Grooves to Chaos provides an interesting clash of brands, from Pink Floyd to RATM, Metallica to Mazzy Star, EDM to Twiddle - there's a blend of many genres to enjoy.
Before the 2020 s**t hit the fan, Dan decided to quit his sales career and learn how to properly produce music. He told his employer, "I will burn this f****ng place to the ground" and was fired (pun completely intended).
Finding a stray dog at a gas station, Dan brought her home (not knowing she was pregnant) and she popped out ten puppies on his 40th birthday. Eight puppies were placed in loving new homes, Momma and two puppies joined the family -- and Pregnant Puppy Productions was born.
As for musical accolades and achievements, you'll find that Grooves To Chaos only has one at the moment - taking a chance on chasing a dream. Dan plays all the instruments, composes and produces all of GTC's music, and his girlfriend, Grace Anastasiadis, sits in as a vocalist and consultant. Just everyday people making high-quality tunes.
