kevin daniel

After spending a lifetime of making music in a host of genres, including everything from big jazz bands to bluegrass quartets, Kevin Daniel started his solo career in 2013 with the release of his inaugural EP, FLY. Two decades of playing saxophone, piano, guitar, drums, bass, and singing had prepared Daniel to record and perform his own original music, yet it was the sudden loss of family which provided the motivation to follow with his dreams. 

Backed by a band of talented New York City-based musicians, Daniel brings FLY and an increasingly large collection of new original tunes to the east coast and beyond.
