Daniel Adams is an independent musician and Seattle native, recently graduated from college and recording his second E.P. with San Francisco Bay area producer Jack Conte (myspace.com/jackconte). He learned guitar in high school, playing classic folk music from artists such as James Taylor, Simon and Garfunkel and Carole King. These influences meshed with the sounds of Jeff Buckley, Jack Johnson and Elliott Smith. Sometime during that sophomore year of college, Daniel began recording the resulting hybrid melodies and instrumentals. His lyrics, from love to death, ring honest with pop and indie listeners alike. His melodies, seemingly melancholy and unresolved, are always hopeful. Currently Daniel plays shows up and down the west coast, whenever he’s in town, from Los Angeles to his home in Seattle. His performances are connecting with more and more listeners, gradually building, ready to emerge as a distinct voice in the sea of American songwriters.
