Album Notes
Soulful, funky, folk, roots, blues. Music with a heavy Dylan influence that Dave Matthews fans will love as well.

Musicians on the new album have played with Sting, Miles Davis, Morphine, Aimee Mann, Steve Earle, and many more.

Daniel Barrett's songs bridge the space between swamp and city. His writing takes cues from country/folk songwriters such as Townes Van Zandt and Lyle Lovett, the sensitive psychedelia of Jeff Buckley, and the Pixies' endearing skew. Twenty-five years old and based in Boston, Daniel sings about love, folks in trouble, and folks redeemed.

He just finished "Shadows," his first full length album. The album was recorded and mixed by W.C. Handy Award winning producer/engineer Chris Rival. Musicians on the album include violinist Casey Driessen (Steve Earle), guitarist Duke Levine (the Story, Mary Chapin- Carpenter), steel guitarist Greg McMullen (Chris Whitley, The Bentmen), bassist Mike Rivard (the Story, Morphine, Club D'Elf), drummers Kenwood Dennard (Sting, The Gil Evans Orchestra, Maceo Parker), John Sands (Aimee Mann), Billy Beard (Patty Griffin, Kim Richey) and many more.

Daniel Barrett's emergence as a singer-songwriter builds on a foundation as a sideman and producer for various Boston artists and bands. Notable is his tenure with long standing world folkers Hypnotic Clambake. He co-produced, sang, and played guitar on Kristin Cifelli's Boston Music Award nominated debut CD, "Silver Bowl." He produced singer-songwriter Nate Borofsky's latest CD, "Never Enough Time". His electric guitar work and vocals can be heard on folk-rocker Adrianne's Boston Music Award winning CD, "For Adeline."

Daniel has toured the US playing venues from coast to coast. Peter Yarrow from Peter, Paul, & Mary heard Daniel's guitar work at the Kerville Folk Festival in Texas and invited he and his bandmates to perform on the Mainstage. Peter also included footage of the band in Peter, Paul, & Mary's "Lifelines" TV special. He can be heard solo and with full band at hometown Boston/Cambridge venues such as Club Passim, The Middle East, The Kendall Cafe, Toad, and the Lizard Lounge. Look for a US tour upon release of "Shadows."

He is the best kept secret in Boston!!
This CD is truly amazing. A huge amount of musicianship and fun. You can tell these guys had fun playing these tunes. The production is warm and real...Daniel Barrett won't be a secret for long!

Van Morrison should make a little room for Daniel Barrett
This is a truly enjoyable CD. I never seem to tire of it. With each play I find something new to smile about. Great is an overly used word but I can find no other to describe the musician ship. And when you listen to the words they ring deep within. Thank you Daniel Barrett and the band.

DB is awsome. From the first song I heard at the little coffee shop in Bellingham MA I knew this guy had a gift. Bought the disc and am watching your tour and hoping you get the recognition you deserve. In any case, come back to Bellingham my man! Love to hear the new stuff in person.


Fuckin Brilliant!

A Love Like This is headed to the top!
Daniel's "A Love Like This" is truly one of the best love songs ever written. Daniel's melodic voice captures that magic moment that inebriates our senses and leaves behind unforgetful memories. If you haven't heard this song, do it now! This song should be on the top of Billboard!
