Daniel (which is his middle name) used to be in a band titled The Average Unknown Soldier for two years. He decided to start a solo project and put songs on Myspace, but it’s turning out to be bigger than he imagined. Daniel is now going from just him to a full band and has even been signed by Brother and Brother. His first E.P, The Lonely Tree, sold out and his next E.P. will be titled Alaska Maps. He is based out of Livermore, Kentucky and if you’re thinking his music has any sort of country edge to it, then you are mistaken. He states it as
Experimental/Ambient/Indie and I must say it’s definitely got the Indie sound. He has a calming, laid-back feel to his music that I can see a lot of people really digging. As for the particular songs, I would start with Become a Lion. Out of all the ones I have heard, this is by far my favorite. It’s obvious it is one of the newer songs, because the quality is a lot better, which is another reason you should check this one out first. The beginning actually reminded me of The Format, but slower and not as dance-y, but still good. Another song would be Chasing after You. This one has a more upbeat sound compared to the others, and is one of the older songs he has up. Basically, if music is your main focus, then definitely give this music a listen.
