From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Dan Wayland Seals (born February 8, 1950 in McCamey, Texas) is an American musician.

From a very music oriented family, his older brother Jim Seals sang with a 1950s musical group called "The Champs" who had a 1958 hit single with the song, "Tequila" and who then teamed up with Dash Crofts in the mid-1960's to perform as "Seals and Crofts". Dan Seals' other brother is country musician Eddie Seals and he is a cousin of composers Troy and Chuck Seals and Brady Seals.

Taught by his father to play the upright bass, in high school, Dan Seals joined with piano-playing friend John Ford Coley to perform as "England Dan & John Ford Coley." The two would eventually have several hits performing singing pop rock harmonies. They disbanded in 1980 and since then Dan Seals has been performing as a solo artist.

Between 1985 and 1990, Seals scored 10 #1 hits, 7 of them consecutively, on the country charts. His first #1, "Bop", won the CMA Award for best single in 1986 and had some crossover success as well; the song reached #10 on the adult contemporary charts and #42 in the Billboard Hot 100. Seals also won a CMA award in 1986 for a duet with Marie Osmond.

Both Dan Seals and Dash Crofts are members of the Bahá'í Faith and say that they derive a lot of their inspiration from the Faith's Teachings.
