New Every Morning
There's something about Dan Craig's music. Often compared to artists like Damien Rice, Ryan Adams, and Josh Ritter, "the innocence of Craig's songwriting and seasoned scratch of his voice" give way to the unique, yet reminiscently inviting music that he has become known for in Colorado over the last year. His 2006 release, "Wirebird", ranges from subtly introspective to out and out experiential in such a way that one magazine reviewer for The Marquee described it as being equally appropriate for "long drives or minor meltdowns." Born and raised in Denver, CO, Craig was always attracted to the independent spirit of his hometown. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania in 2004, he moved back home to pursue his musical aspirations. Since that time, Dan has been actively crafting his own songwriting and performing as well as contributing to other local musical projects. Craig's love of music started early. After being taught guitar by his father at a very young age, Dan began making his own music at thirteen. Over a decade later, he has taken those years of experience and a truly diverse array of influences and crafted a brand of music that fits well next to the most gentle of singer/songwriters or the most intense of rock and roll bands. Craig's lyrics reflect his love of this city and the beauty of Colorado. This passionate and hopeful imagery intermingled with his background in biology and medicine make for a lyrical voice that is totally unique. His songs have a knack for expressing the human condition scientifically without losing the emotional importance of everyday life. To date, Dan has self-released two full length records, 2005's New Every Morning and Wirebird released in December of 2006. Along with a backing band of various members and some friends from the growing local scene in Denver, Craig returned to the studio this winter to work on a new full-length album to come out in spring 2008. Both previous releases area available at cdbaby.com and on iTunes.
