More about Daniel Wayne:
If you haven’t heard a truly great voice lately, you might want to check out Daniel Wayne. There’s no doubt that distinguishing yourself as a singer-songwriter can be difficult; it’s a style where it’s easy to be mediocre, difficult to be great. But that voice puts to rest the doubters – sweet through the middle and upper ranges and flawless on the high notes, Wayne is instantly recognizable as well as accessible. A good example can be heard on the haunting, lonely solo number, “Pub’s Crawl”, which also takes an abrupt turn into a religious hymn at the end. Humble and appreciative between songs, the Ohio native comes across likable as well (the Midwestern thing again?). As for his songs, many are tinged with a light country twang, and navigate both indie gloom and homespun folk themes with equal skill.
I will admit that I had not heard of Wayne before I caught this Glasslands Gallery set opening for Jessica Lea Mayfield (that recording here), but apparently I was behind the curve. A sizable crowd showed up to catch his opening set, and by the end, a pretty full house was paying rapt attention. Wayne split the set equally between solo acoustic and full-band electric numbers, and we have served up a streaming example of each below (along with the complete-set download, of course). When the full band comes in during the first chorus of “Birds,” you can tell that Wayne’s big voice is equally if not better suited to the full-band treatment. The full-band songs also give Wayne a broader palette for his arrangements, and he takes full advantage on songs like the countrified “Virgin Saint”, streaming below. Despite being the first opener of the night, Wayne put forth a full 50-minute set that alone was worth the show’s price of admission. As Wayne himself put it in a recent interview on the CBS News website, “Every time I get on the stage, I give it everything I have.” This was only my first Daniel Wayne performance, but that sure seemed to be the case.
I recorded this set with Schoeps MK22 “open cardiod” microphones and a flawless soundboard feed provided by Josh Thiel, the house engineer at Glasslands. The sound is outstanding. Enjoy!

"Cincinnati-bred, Brooklyn-based auteur Daniel Wayne pens dark Americana with indie melancholy and a distinct bluegrass twang." (TIME OUT NY)
"One of the stand-outs of the night was Daniel Wayne....a cross between Harry Nilsson and the spooky tones of "Twin Peaks." EXAMINER.COM
"..., but Daniel Wayne went on first, stole the show, and was an incredibly hard act to follow." -DAILY NUGGETS BLOGSPOT
"Daniel Wayne plays that steel string, sunburst Guild guitar like his mama told him not to. He dresses like Johnny Cash, has attitude like Bob Dylan and plays bar chords with his thumb. You’ll think this guy’s a real-live outlaw until he sweetens up between songs and starts calling the audience “y’all.” Sometimes bluesy, Daniel Wayne has a classic country backbone with eerie undertones: like if Jerry Reed had written the Natural Born Killers soundtrack. Slow songs like “Far From Here” sound like My Morning Jacket, while “The Fool” gristles like a basey Townes Van Zant song."
-Jenny Luczak, Deli Magazine
"As a photographer, there are certain artists that when I study them on stage before a show, I know despite a seemingly placid and pure appearance, some sort of musical fury is seething beneath the surface about to be unleashed. People like Shilpa Ray or Langhorne Slim come to mind. In the case of Daniel Wayne, you can add a baby-faced fury to those qualities. While not loud or fast, he performs with a delicate strength - precise and passionate. His style of singing and playing is such that there's power in the silences between strums and verses, that's how much he had the crowd on a string. The bottom line is that he's got that can't-be-taught magnetism which solo male singer-songwriters tend to try to compensate for with a harmonica....it's always rewarding seeing and shooting a star on the rise lighting up a small room before they go on to be shared by the rest of the world."
