“…the work of a player who has fully internalized old time and bluegrass and who is now reshaping them into a brand new, highly individualized form…this guy isn’t naive; he’s a master” (Justin Farrar, Strawberry Flats)
“In his work, Daniel is attracted to outsiders in the most literal sense — people who live on the outside of civilization, for whom, in Daniel’s eyes, mere survival is an act of artistic expression.” -RES Magazine
