Danny Schmidt has amassed a cult following for his poetic, poignant imagery. With lyrical depth drawing comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Townes Van Zandt, and Dave Carter, Schmidt is an artist whose earthy poetry conjures magic from the mundane.
Armed with voice, acoustic guitar, and acute commentary, Schmidt is an authentic timeless troubadour, one man sharing his truth in song unadorned and intimate. Danny's writing is diverse, from deeply-rooted Appalachian mountain gospel to haunted English balladry; from syncopated Piedmont country blues to vagabond 60's protest folk. Danny tackles themes of love, loss, and longing; restless discontent; and grateful joy. He captures the sorrow and the beauty inherent in our everyday lives with the wisdom of a perceptive, compassionate elder and the innocent awe and tenderness of a child.
Following his self-released Parables & Primes, Schmidt's 2007 release, Little Grey Sheep, began a streak of albums that charted at #1 on the folk radio charts internationally. After receiving a Kerrville New Folk award, Schmidt won the notice of venerable Americana roots label, Red House Records, which began releasing his albums in 2009.
Schmidt released three albums on Red House, including Instead The Forest Rose To Sing; the spare and intimate Man Of Many Moons; and, with his partner, Carrie Elkin, the amorous duo album, For Keeps. Schmidt's latest release is Owls, a mystical collection of ethereal allegories. www.dannyschmidt.com
