Danielson’s music lies somewhere between a train wreck and a beautiful indie rock orchestra, but when they’re on they’re on!
So, what a treat to have Danielson come to Ardent Studios to play for us! We have been fans of these guys for years! Lead singer Daniel Smith’s squeaky falsetto can be both soothing and grating depending on the feel of the music. But seeing the entire band can be quite a show!
You can see for yourself tonight at The Hi-tone Cafe! It should be an amazing show and a lot cooler temperature wise then the last time they played there in 2006 (The air conditioning was broken!) Follow the amazing Danielson on twitter!
Check out our podcast to hear some outstanding live tunes! Feel free to download The Warm Up at Ardent Studios with Danielson podcast! It’s a free Memphis music download from us to you!
Danielson is an American Rock band from Clarksboro, New Jersey that plays indie pop gospel music. The group consists of frontman Daniel Smith and a number of various artists with whom he collaborates. Smith has also released solo work as Brother Danielson.
When joined by his family the band is known as Danielson Famile or Danielson Family, whose members have included Smith; his “siblings Andrew, David, Megan, and Rachel; wife Elin; friends Christiaan & Melissa Palladino; [and] daughter Lilly”. Sufjan Stevens has also recorded and performed with the group.
The band is known for Smith’s squeaky falsetto vocals, innovative musical arrangements, and matching nurse uniforms, “that act, according to Daniel, as ‘visual reminders of the spiritual and emotional healing taking place’ within audience members.” During some performances Smith has “worn a nine-foot tall, hand-made nine-fruit tree to ‘bear the good fruit,’” in reference to the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
