"CDB's writing is so insightful and his imagery is astonishing at times." -Lucky Boyd (Singer/Songwriter, Houston, TX)

"Daniel's guitar playing is excellent, his vocals are awesome and the subject matter for his songs is diverse yet there is a common thread of family ties, humor and just down right good story telling. I honestly think it is one of the best Folk recordings I have heard." -Jesse Thurgood (Singer/Songwriter, Provo, UT - Kerrville Folk Festival NewFolk Songwriter Finalist 2001)

"Boling's voice is comfortable and warm, embracing each song in perfect Texas folk fashion. The 2000 release is "WELCOME HOME" (Perfectly Stable Music) and how fitting it is that Kerrville's buzz phrase is the same. C. Daniel Boling is an accomplished guitarist, making each song a delicate balance of meaningful lyrics and stylish music. Boling can hold his own with Dana Cooper in the way he moves through chord progressions with purpose and punctuality. In the same breath, his folk tunes could as easily be orchestrated to rock anthems due to the quality of the foundation of each song. This is a great folk album, and Boling does it without re-tuning his guitar to some different unimaginable open chord for each song. Thanks Daniel." -MyTexasMusic.com

Albuquerque Journal - Venue - December 8, 2000
C. Daniel Boling
(3 1/2 stars)

C. Daniel Boling is an Albuquerque singer-songwriter with a special gift. Boling's story-songs -- of remembering family, of coming of age, of loving life -- are honest without being sappy and his style comes straight out of the honored American folksinging tradition.

Part of Boling's gift is felt in the warmth of his voice, the directness of his lyrics and the simplicity of the melodies.

Take, for example, the opening selection, which is the title cut. Here is an excerpt: "I see we've all made our way back again where our spirits are made new. We gather here to share this time from all life's many walks... to share the music, to share our songs, to sit alone and talk."

Two songs that speak to the working man and woman are the thoughtful "Who I
Am" and the kicky "Mid-Week Blues." Here's a line from the blues: "Some day I'd
like to not show up and never even call. Stay at home and lie in bed and not get up at

"Who I Am" advises that we shold not let our jobs define us: "This is the job that feeds my family. But it's not who I am, just what I do."

Boling has received some recognition, he was a finalist in the singer-songwriter
category of the South Florida Folk Festival. Boling deserves recognition in his
hometown so you can say, "I knew him when...".
