BIO: Dan Konopka has been playing drums for over 30 years, having developed a passion for music and art as early back as kindergarten.

He went on to become a founding member of the Grammy Award winning band, OK Go and has played drums with them for the last 20 years. OK Go began recording and touring in 1998, and they haven’t stopped yet. The band was signed to Capitol Records in 2001, and won the Grammy Award for Best Music Video by 2006. Nominated for two more Grammy Awards since, OK Go continue to receive a multitude of other honors and awards from two MTV Music Video Awards to two YouTube Music Video awards and, notably, the Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award.

In 2009, Dan decided to branch out from the band to also become a more involved writer and collaborator.
He graduated Icon Collective in 2011, focusing on music production and mixing.
.
Since that time, he has released numerous full album productions, as well as dozens of mixes and remixes for various artists from around the world.

    Working with Dan was a positive experience from start to finish. There's nothing like working with someone who understands the genre of your song and takes the creative brief to heart. It also helps tremendously working with a cat who understands how to serve the project. (But that's something learned in the trenches.) I'll be knocking on his creative door again sometime in the future. I highly recommend this Cat.

    Dan was super quick with turnarounds, and was committed to making sure we got the exact mix we were after. All tracks ended up sounding epic.

    Another great drum track from Dan. Very professional and highly recommended. The only drummer I've used on SoundBetter as he's been brilliant. Thanks again.

    Dan really did it. I had a vision in my mind and he absolutely, 100% not only realized it, he exceeded my expectations. Now finally, I have more than just a homemade demo, I have a real, polished, produced, and professionally crafted song. Thanks, and let's keep on rocking together.

    Dan's a highly communicative, super talented pro who delivered exactly what he promised in timely fashion. If you need live drum tracking for a tune, I can't imagine a better person to reach out to.
