Album Notes
Fate Said Nevermind is the follow-up to Once Was Red, Dan May's critically acclaimed debut album. Featuring an eclectic mixture of swampy Louisiana guitar licks, bluesy piano, and the driving rhythm guitar which is the trademark of the band. Painted over this lush tapestry are the layered vocal harmonies that make the music so appealing and truly special. Elements of Americana Roots, Folk, Country, Rock, Jazz and Pop make this music hard to label, but so easy to love.

Singer-songwriter Dan May's career path has taken more twists and turns than a corkscrew in a hurricane. He's worked as a grave-digger, television cameraman, short-order cook, nuclear missile security guard, sold clothing in a big and tall men's store, driven an ice cream truck, delivered furniture, wrote feature stories for a daily newspaper, unloaded trucks at an amusement park, and labored in a greenhouse. All before the age of 25.
Then, while studying music composition in college, he inadvertently stumbled into an opera career that would see him singing with opera companies across the U.S. and Canada, and leaving a promising future as a singer-songwriter behind.
Cut to 15 years later, and a vocal-chord surgery that left him no longer able to meet the demands of opera. Talk about a blessing in disguise. He is now back where he belongs, writing and performing his own songs, delivered in a voice that is as unique as it is interesting.

Dan's the Man
I drove across the country to listen to these songs live. Usually it takes a long time to get into the groove with songs, but Dan and his band hit the mark straight away. Castaway has a lovely introduction, and One More Time made me cry. Whether you're a lyrics or music person, or maybe even both, you'll enjoy the compilations on this CD. Dan's unique voice and clever wit are on the next level, and it's only going to get better in subsequent CDs!

Great CD
Listen to the first song on Dan May's Fate Said Nevermind CD and you will be a fan forever "That One Song" is a great song! As you continue through the CD you will hear a beatifully written and performed collection of deep and thoughtful music.

Tim Ryan

Totally Awesome CD
I Love Dan May Sound and music preference. He's everything I use to listen to as a young man. Now at 55 the music is the same and the subject of the song is equal to my maturity. "Fate Said Nevermind" has it all. Just Buy it!

Tim Ryan

Fate Said Nevermind
This CD has a permanent home in my player, replacing my all-time favorite, Rod Stewart. His style is most-definately unique and his voice is beautiful!


The Best Music
Thank you Dan, I listen to both of the CDs every day. I can never get enough. All of my friends are starting to come over just to listen. Keep them coming.

And i thought the first 2 discs were Great!!!
This one tops them. Both the earlier works were fantastic also, but Dan has really reached his stride with this effort. Musically rich, and instrumentally always interesting with Lyrics that conjure images like the best Novel.
I can NOT get enough of this disc. I don't remember the last time I listened to an album with a smile on my face throughout.
You have got to Love a guy that can write a song with a twist that would otherwise be a "sad song".Listen to Fate said Nevermind...The Beautiful Cheyenne/ Sister Rain.

Beautiful Harmonies, Beautiful Messages, Beautiful Imagery and Beautiful Production.

This is one of those cases where My Space truly did it's job in hooking up an artist with an audience that probably otherwise wouldn't have heard him.
As a Listener with a Massive collection of music I do not write 5 star reviews lightly, but this is a disc that truly deserves airplay and an Artist that deserves many Listeners!

Jennifer White

Music lovers of all genres will love "Fate Said Nevermind."
This CD is packed with touching lyrics, unforgettable melodies, and poignant observations. Dan is not only a wonderfully amazing songwriter/musician, but he also taps into the unsaid recesses of the human mind.


The CD is magically heartbreakingly wonderful! From slow songs like "Chayenne" to mid-tempo beats like "That one song" or the driven and cool "The fish that got away" - you must love this album. It took a long time for an artist to get me so addicted. Wonderful lyrics and very passionate, poetic harmonies... it's magic.

Reflecting On Life
One More Time is the best song to hear to remember loved ones we have lost. Every time I hear it I get teared up. Thanks Dan for such a wonderful song. Everybody tell your people how much they mean to you, because we never know when the time will come for us or someone we love. Listen to this song now and then to remind yourself.
