Dan Cloutier

Worcester Magazine published a rave review of the album Blind Willie’s Lighthouse, saying, “Dan Cloutier’s latest CD is a beacon in the storm. It is an inspiring collection of original songs by Cloutier, chronicling his love of New England, depicted by stormy seas, crashing waves and seagoing captains, along with tales of love and faith. Cloutier’s gift for storytelling is apparent in the richness of his tales.”
