    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.


    He's from Camden Town, and he is without question one of the most gifted musicians/composers/producers that you may well have never heard of. He's worked with an array of artists that include Brian Eno, David Holmes, Paul Simon, Natalie Imbruglia, and Mark Owen.

    His 2007 album 'The Unrest Cure' is a phenomenal piece of work. It stuck out from everything else released that year with its wonderful eclecticism and imagination. Dan features this for this week's Buried Treasure album.
