Dan Kocher is a local folk musician and former frontman of Folk/Americana outfits Mylo Jenkins and the Younger Brothers. His songs are steeped in the stylings of traditional songwriters like Townes Van Zandt, Johnny Cash, and Greg Brown, with modern influences like Gregory Alan Isakov and Will Oldham.
"His songs aren’t so much quirky as they are complex. Hulphers wears an invisible costume, a character that is partially comedic, antagonistic and vulnerable, one that is always tough for audiences to gauge just where he’s coming from. 'I love riding that ambiguous razor’s edge line between sincerity and complete sarcasm.'” Hulphers says."
