My name is Mark Daniel and I'm a former Berklee College of Music Student, Rock/Blues Singer/Songwriter that spent the greater part of 12 years touring the USA.
While on the road I supported/opened for a wide range of
musicians/bands including: Steve Vai, former members of Pearl Jam & Blind Melon, Everclear, Living Colour, the Jagermeister Tour ..etc.
3 years ago and decided to lock myself in my home studio to focus on my songwriting and overall musicianship. I then started collaborating with session great Mickey Curry (Hall & Oates, Bryan Adams, Steve Winwood, David Bowie...etc) .
NEW E.P. (Release 2018)
In late 2016/early 2017 I began recording what will be released as the "New Truth” E.P. with Mickey Curry on Drums and Marc Hickox on Bass (my close friend from Berklee and also bassist for blues legend Charlie Musslewhite). E.P. is Mixed and Mastered by Matt Wagner.
I like to think the E.P. represents all that I love about
music..songs, guitar playing, a tight rhythm section thoughtful
production & honest lyrics. I believe it blends together all that inspires me.
In 2017 I formed a live trio: Mark Daniel & the Free Radicals..
blending hard rock and blues with my songs and improvisation. CT natives Nathan Dobas on Drums & Jeff Richardson on Bass.
April 2018 I returned to the studio to begin recording the follow up to “New Truth,” with Mickey & Marc while rehearsing for live dates.
