Little Grey Sheep

by Danny Schmidt

2007. Americana UK calls Danny: "a captivating talent, with an intensely literate take on things that, at times, recalls that of Josh Ritter . . . but, if anything, encompasses a wider stylistic range and an arguably even greater sense of poeticism."

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Little Grey Sheep is Danny's fifth album. Recorded and produced in Charlottesville, VA at the home of Danny's good friend (and brilliant songwriter) Paul Curreri.

This album (perhaps more than any of the previous ones, even) holds true to Danny's aesthetic of intimate production. The arrangements are sparse and organic and tasteful and serve as delicate backdrops for the Songs.

Featured prominently on many of the tracks is the ethereal vocal harmony of the amazing Joia Wood . . . back from musical hiatus.

As for this collection of songs . . . they are, perhaps, more personal and accessible than Danny's last couple of records . . . simpler, prettier, and more sing-song. They still have the lyrical subtlety and nuance we've come to expect from Danny Schmidt songs . . . but sweetened a bit with a little sugar this time around.

Please visit Danny's website for much more information about this album, including a song-by-song commentary, full MP3 samples, reviews, and all the lyrics.

Riveting
I first heard Danny Schmidt perfom at a house concert a few months ago. I can't recall ever hearing a more poetic song writer, or a more heart-felt performance. What a find! Danny played "Company of Friends" at that concert and mentioned that it would be on his upcoming CD "Little Grey Sheep." I've been waiting impatiently ever since to get my hands on the CD. It's terrific. Read the lyrics to get the full understanding of just how special this man's artistry is. Can't wait to introduce my friends to him.

I think you will like this album - just make sure you listen to the words. Parables and Primes is still my favorite album of his.

I instantly fell in love with Danny's rhymes with reason when I first heard his music on Whole Wheat Radio. But this album is the one that did it for me! And when I listened to "Company of Friends", I said to myself..."Yes, this guy truly understands about life, and he isn't afraid to tell it." Anyone who has a heart will automatically connect with this album...a big thumbs up!

Not much to be said that you can't get from just listening. I usually like my Danny Schmidt barebones, just him and his guitar, but this is artfully done. The man is a poet of words, melody and pacing. The album is a collection of stories about life, each story a small slice of the human experience. Bravo!

Best Yet!
As always, Danny continues to dazzle us with his lyrics and hypnotic melodies. This Cd is added to my pile of his past works and I think is his best yet! Danny has a very special gift and we are blessed to have him share his talent with us.

It seems that every Danny Schmidt album contains at least one song that any songwriter would be proud of if it was the only song he ever wrote. This album is no exception. I plan to learn "Company of Friends" and include it in my performances. Maybe my eyes moisten too easily, but Danny has done it again.

You know this kind of treasure you wanna keep hidden from the rest of the world...Those thoughts you've kept for yourself, lurked in the deepest and darkest well...the horizons you cast your eyes upon to move on a little while more as the whole world is crumbling behind you...But be mindful : Danny's music can, in a blink of an ear, become an extension of yourself...and that is only about his music...cause the guy, the normal person that dwells within him, is always available, a man of humility, of humanity...but who cares as long as...errrrr....may be the two go together...Thanks so much.

Maybe it's growing up in Montana and have a song about a beautiful little chunk of it . . . either way, Danny's samurai sword of songwriting, his ability to slash through anything that's not a heart on the sleeve, hits home once again. A little spicier and rockier than his last few . . . fully dug by me. Highly recommended, as are his others . . .
