Reaching For A State Of Mind is the second full length album from West Midlands based singer-songwriter DAN WHITEHOUSE.

Questioning, observing, the album is filled with optimism and self-doubt, as central characters attempt to find their place in the world.

Recorded with producer / musician / collaborator Michael Clarke, and featuring guest appearances from steel guitarist PJ Wright (Fairport Convention), The Old Dance School's Helen Lancaster (viola and violin) Booga (Ezio), and with significant input from percussionist Chip Bailey (Duke Special), whose use of ‘stump fiddle’, pots and pans adds a distinctive rhythmical sound to Dan’s songs.
