Over ten years into a rising career, Besides Daniel continues to evolve from a shy musical recording project into a dynamic live performance with a growing audience and three previously successful albums. The dynamic blend of poetic lyricism, evocative vocals and cathartic honesty that comes from the music is unique and refreshing.
Danny Brewer, the mastermind behind Besides Daniel, pulls from his own experiences and life lessons to craft his songs. His last release, This Marvelous Grief, was featured by NPR, Starbucks and NBC’s Heartbeat. The album told stories of the soul-searching, heartache and the all-around “craziness” that comes with being in your twenties. T E E M I N G, set for release on August 24th, is a subtle reflection on the adventure of putting roots in the ground, committing to love, healing through long-suffering and the celebration of new life. This collection of songs humbly puts into perspective the weight of life lessons, true friendship, the risks of marriage and the triumph of a heart that has healed. In the time between releases, Brewer became a husband and father and learned from the unique experience of building and living in a tiny house in the mountains of North Georgia. “Our house is very simple and spacious for being 250 square feet. It’s minimal as far as time and energy is concerned because we don’t have a lot of overhead in our life as far as bills, and it is very easy to maintain. I hope the record is informed and guided by that spaciousness,” reflects Brewer.
The first single off the record, titled “Wonderfully Made," was released on June 22, and is included on NoiseTrade album, Your Voice When You Were Younger.
The second single, "If You Ask Me To," was released on July 27, and is included on the NoiseTrade album, Oblivion Can Be The Sweetest Song.
