Daan is the solo project from the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Daniël "Daan" Stuyven.

Daan was already active for years when in 1999 his first album Profools came out. It is a collection of songs from Stuyven that he recorded between 1993 and 1999. The influence of Dead Man Ray, Stuyven's previous project, can clearly still be felt, even though there are some electronic influences in the songs.

The second album, Bridge Burner (2002), was a breakthrough, partly because Stuyven chose to go more into the direction of electronically flavoured dance music. The dance number "Swedish Designer Drugs" became a club classic and the frontman gradually gathered a live band around himself, consisting of top musicians like Isolde Lasoen (drums, vibraphone and backing vocalist), opera singer Gregory Frateur, Jeroen Swinnen (synthesizer and backing vocalist), Steven Janssens (guitar), Otti Van Der Werf (bass guitar), and Jo Hermans (trumpet and backing vocalist).
