Luke Daniel is shaking up the Americana music scene and crossing over several genres in the process.
If you’re checking a box, you can check Americana, but if you’re adding songs to your playlist, there’s plenty of options to work with. Rock & Roll, Country, Blues, and soul to name a few: you could put him in any of these categories.
The only problem is, you can’t choose just one, it’s not possible. Luke’s catalogue of all original music, showcases and eclectic mix of influences spanning decades of music consumption.
The son of a grocery store manager and a preschool teacher, Luke grew up in small town Missouri. Like most artists, Luke developed a deep and abiding love of music at a very early age.
“Music was always part of our lives growing up and my dad loved sharing his favorite music with me. We listened to a lot of Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes and B.B. King; but we also listened to Janice Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jethro Tull and Led Zeppelin.”
Rock n Roll Americana
Luke’s debut album, Rock n Roll Americana, is authentically original and refreshing.
Produced by Derek Hames at Edgewater Music Group (The Teague Brothers, Statesboro Revue, Roxy Roca), the 9-track album’s energetic mix of country spirit and rock ‘n’ roll attitude is already gaining attention at Americana radio and streaming outlets. The first single, “Long Road,” made the Alternate Root’s Top 10 playlist and SiriusXM host, blogger and publicist Eric Alper also added it to his influential 360: The Best Indie Music Spotify playlist.
The album was added to the popular Country Pickinz Spotify playlist “New Music Friday” on release day and has broken the top 100 on The Americana Music Association’s albums chart.
