Sharing experiences from a life well-lived in places as far ranging as Okinawa, Japan, and Padre Island, Texas, this balladeer/songwriter with the friendly tenor brings his well-crafted story songs to lucky audiences coast-to-coast in over one hundred shows a year, from house concerts to festivals (Woody Guthrie, Walnut Valley, etc.) Born into a traveling Air Force family, he later worked as a National Park Ranger (yes, the gun-toting kind) and as a Criminal Investigator for the US Bureau of Land Management. He started touring at 50, when most guys are planning their retirement.
Sleeping Dogs is Daniel’s 6th album. The record was produced by Jono Manson, released at the end of 2013 on Berkalin Records, and was in the Top 10 on the Euro Americana Radio Chart in January, 2014. Maverick Magazine in the UK gave the album Four Stars and called the music “songs about life and the way it should be cherished”.
Daniel’s personable stage presence and intriguing backstories keep his performances engaging. There’s a lot of Steve Goodman in his delivery and storytelling. You can also hear other classic folk singers like Tom Paxton and John Prine. It’s no surprise that the great Appalachian folk singer Jean Ritchie is a distant cousin. He’s had the pleasure to share the stage with Tom Chapin, Small Potatoes, Jack Williams and many others.
He’s won numerous songwriting awards including the Walnut Valley Festival, Santa Fe Bluegrass and Old Time Festival, Albuquerque Folk Festival, and Woody Guthrie Folk Festival and has played juried showcases at the Southeast, Northeast and Midwest conferences of the International Folk Alliance.
There’s a reason that Still on the Hill calls him “one of the most talented songwriters on the circuit.” Whether or not you’ve walked the very same roads, you can’t help but relate to these songs – and no matter what your story, you’ll love Daniel’s. www.danielboling.com
