Album Notes
Produced by Jono Manson, recorded at The Kitchen Sink Studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and released April 15, 2016 on Berkalin Records.

This album features 10 new songs of Daniel's, a new song he co-wrote with Andi Renfree, and two songs written by Daniel's friend and mentor, the late great Tim Henderson -- with cameo appearances by - Bill Hearne, Jaime Michaels, David Berkeley, Wayne Shrubsall, Meredith Wilder, Jono Manson, John Egenes, Ben Wright, Josh Martin, Mark Clark, Karina Wilson, Char Rothschild, Brant Leeper, Lynn Rosenthal, Gary Paul Hermus, Ali Mohammad and Shakoor Fakir.

2014 Winner of the Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk songwriter contest, Daniel shares experiences from a life well-lived in places as far-ranging as Okinawa, Japan, and Padre Island, Texas. This balladeer /songwriter with the friendly tenor brings his well-crafted story songs to happy audiences coast-to-coast in over one hundred shows a year, from House Concerts and listening rooms to major festivals (Kerrville, Winfield, Woody Guthrie, and others).

Born into a traveling Air Force family, he later worked as a National Park Ranger (yes, the gun-toting kind) and as a Criminal Investigator for the US Bureau of Land Management. He started touring at 50, an age when most guys are planning their retirement. He’s got seven albums including the newest, THESE HOUSES, produced by Jono Manson and released in April 2016 on the Berkalin Records label.

Daniel’s songs tell interesting stories about a variety of characters, including himself. He plays the guitar and banjitar (a banjo/guitar hybrid) with a deft fingerpicking style that always enhances the stories, and a bit of harmonica into the bargain. His clear tenor draws positive comparisons to John Denver and Pete Seeger, and like Pete, Daniel is happiest when his audiences sing too!

There’s a lot of Steve Goodman in Daniel’s delivery and storytelling. You can also hear the influence of other classic folk singers and songs from the great American folk tradition. It’s no surprise that iconic Appalachian folk singer Jean Ritchie is his second cousin. He’s had the pleasure to share the stage with Tom Chapin, Small Potatoes, Jack Williams, Tim Henderson, John Flynn and many more. He’s won numerous songwriting awards including Kerrville New Folk, Walnut Valley Festival, Santa Fe bluegrass and Old Time Festival, Albuquerque Folk Festival, and Woody Guthrie Folk Festival and has played juried showcases at conferences in every region of the International Folk Alliance.

There’s a reason that Still on the Hill calls him “one of the most talented songwriters on the circuit.” Whether or not you’ve walked the very same roads, you can’t help but relate to these songs – and no matter what your story is, you’ll love Daniel’s.
