Can’t Go Back is a new short film by Director James Smith about Dan Raza. In 2012 Rachel reviewed Dan’s debut album for Folk Radio UK and ended her review saying “But the heart of the album’s appeal is Raza’s emergence as a songwriter of exceptional talent.”
Dan has been on the cusp of stardom before. He has supported Bellowhead, been endorsed by Neil Young and even shared the stage with Badly Drawn Boy. Despite this, Dan hasn’t made it in the music industry yet. “Dan is the ‘nearly man’ who delivers leaflets for a living, to fuel his passion for music.”
In a culture where x-factor TV is viral, this thought-provoking film follows Dan’s fascinating journey, examines the music industry and showcases his undiscovered talent. It’s a great eye-opener, please share it far and wide as it’s a story that needs to be heard.
