Dane Kinser is a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist living in Nashville, TN. His playing has roots in acoustic fingerstyle, particularly the playing of Phil Keaggy - although he would never compare himself to Phil. He acquired a love for live performance while touring the southeast in the acoustic duo Dane and Taylor while in college. After graduating and trying a number of jobs, ranging from math teacher to worship pastor, he decided to pursue playing guitar full time.
After moving to Nashville in 2013, Dane quickly immersed himself in music culture there, playing over 150 dates in his first year with a number of different artists. He is known for his carefree demeanor, energetic stage presence, and luscious locks of curly hair. He also builds his own guitar pedals, which are often decorated with various video game characters.
He is currently playing guitar/utility for Valory Music Co. recording artist RaeLynn. His Breedlove SC/R has been with him for over 10 years now and seems to be enjoying the journey as much as he is.
