A BlankTV Premiere Presentation:
DII - "Little Voices"
From three time Grammy nominated (for songs co-written and co-produced) multi-Platinum recording artist Dan Spitz, who’s sold upwards of 20 million albums (ANTHRAX), and had his song chosen by NASA’s 2012 Rover to be played on MARS alongside only nine other artists such as FRANK SINATRA and THE BEATLES, comes a complete re invention of his musical direction once again, breaking barriers never before accomplished within any music areas. DII is Dan Spitz on Weissenborn lap slide guitar and Don Chaffin on vocals.
Dan Spitz has put down his electric guitar and reinvented himself as an artist by learning this rare Weissenborn lap slide instrument played by few, and mastered by only a handful on the planet. In quiet seclusion and secrecy kept by many helping him achieve his goals, Spitz relentlessly had to un-learn old skills, to acquire a new. He has once again achieved a non genre specific music pathway changing avenue that is unique to DII, and a new era of an emotional based musical ride that could make a woman cry or a man feel empowered to achieve. DII is one powerful musical duo.
With long time musical partner, vocalist Don Chaffin administering his soulful and heart felt lyrical avenues of execution, the listener will be instantly taken on a journey so familiar of the greatest singers of all time, yet a sound from this duo is of none present, past, or can be duplicated into the future. DII’s lyrical content has the power to touch both a woman’s heart, and a man’s soul.
DII takes the blues base that heavy metal was derived from and transforms it to “A New Music For A New Era.” Being DII is non genre specific, the duo will be playing alongside bands of any and all areas of music, from the hardest of thrash metal’s best to the soulful valleys of slide guitar greats, and beyond.
DII is here to bring global awareness of Autism through music and the luxury watch arena (Dan Spitz also holds some of the highest regarded Swiss degrees in micro mechanical engineering and is a Master Watchmaker of Complications Specialist). Dan Spitz is a single father to identical twin sons who are both on the Autism spectrum and his life long goal is to help children through these avenues and enlighten the public to the word Autism. A relentless task of work ethic placed upon him and his heart to do so.
DII will be releasing a 6-song EP along with three masterpiece videos directed by Don Chaffin. A few songs have revisited Dan Spitz’ past co-writing work with Anthrax to bring forth a sound in an entirely new way, and the penned originals are an emotional walk through relationship areas and everyday life’s struggles and truth. The duo has also written a song that is radio friendly for the Autism community already being spoken of as Autism’s anthem arrived, and brings forth Mr.Spitz’ real life daily grind with his Autistic twins to the forefront of what makes this artist on a mission do what he does. He wears his heart on his sleeve for others on the spectrum and raises the bar of Autism Awareness in music once again.
About The Video:
Little Voices is a journey of the unspoken words between a parent of an Autistic child and their sibling. The love between the them that can not be put into words. It simply … IS.
