Since childhood, Kevin Daniel has known music was his future. Daniel recalls telling his parents he heard music in his head all the time, and their response was to buy him a keyboard and sign him up for lessons. Since that day, Daniel has spent a lifetime playing music, learning keys, saxophone, drums, guitar, bass, banjo, and even bagpipes along the way, all while singing in any capacity he could. Middle school saxophone quartets turned into high school rock bands before morphing into university symphony and jazz programs. Collegiate highlights include playing horn for DC-based Kill Lincoln, singing alto in the all-male a capella group Emocapella, and playing in the GWU blues band throughout the DC area.
After spending years of making music in a host of genres, including everything from big swing bands to bluegrass quartets, Kevin Daniel started his solo career in 2013 with the release of his inaugural EP, FLY. Two decades of performing, writing, and recording had prepared Daniel to record and perform his own original music, while the sudden loss of his mother and stepfather provided the motivation to proceed with his dream. Backed by a band of talented musicians, daniel brings FLY and an increasingly large collection of new original tunes to the east coast and beyond.
Kevin Daniel is currently finishing his second EP, Myself Through You, recorded at Degraw Sound in Brooklyn, NY, and produced, engineered, and mixed by Ben Rice. Daniel’s sophomore EP brings the bold emotions of the organ, steel guitar, and horn to the forefront of Americana music, a genre growing its fan base exponentially. With backup vocals provided by the talented Irene Blackman, Daniel’s lyrics touch on his childhood in rural North Carolina, personal struggle with the loss of his family, and the inevitable forward push of time.
Following the future release of Myself Through You in early 2018, kevin daniel will tour throughout the northeast, southeast, south, and midwest, bringing his explosive live performances and a full band on the road and to the masses.
