Bio

Daniel Whittington has a sound that covers a lot of territory. He spent years playing drums with various blues and Texas rock bands in the area surrounding Austin, TX. Daniel spent the better part of 6 years on the road touring across the entire US, Canada, and parts of England with his band, that was signed to UK based Furious Records.

After leaving the band he dug back into the songs that he’d been writing during that time on the road combining the folk and Americana influences that he has from his time growing up in the Folk scene of Central Texas, and the harder sound he cultivated when writing and recording with the roots rock band, Rhodes. The last Rhodes album, Half a Mind To Stay, was released in 2007 to critical acclaim, and even garnered them an opening slot with Aerosmith in the summer of 2007.

His latest songs have begun to take him back down the path of his early musical leanings, and he’s cultivated a list of covers ranging from Neil Young and Bob Dylan to Paul Simon and Blood, Sweat, and Tears.
