After touring all over the world as a guitarist and then stepping into his own artistry, Daniel B. Marshall has found a way to chart his own path in a musical world that seems very one-track minded in the current millennium. How else do you explain an artist that can maneuver from playing guitar for Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys and performing alongside young country sensation Lyric Street Records star Ashley Gearing to producing his own records while maintaining a staggering schedule of over 260 dates per year?
Daniel B. has shared the stage with some of today's hottest and brightest stars, performing on the same bill as Phil Vassar, Gwen Stefani, Norah Jones, Kid Rock, Slightly Stoopid, Celine Dion, LeAnn Rimes, and many, many others. In addition, he has paved the way around the southeast as an artist in his own right, all the while finding the time to produce records for country singer Becca Rae as well as his own. After teaming up with his childhood friend from high school Danny Rader on his latest album "Sunshine," he decided to split his time between his home in Tampa, Fl while spending a large portion in Nashville, TN working with the larger writing and musical community there.
The music that he has created through the years has a certain multi-genre quality to it that's hard to label, like most true artists are. From his upbringing with his dad listening to Alan Jackson and George Strait to his mother's passion for folk records like James Taylor and Bob Dylan, Daniel learned to find the link between all these wonderful styles: lyrics and melody coupled with fantastic musicianship. Picking up R&B from his vocal training days, he tries to blend all the soulful elements from each style and make something new. Daniel will be a force in the music industry in all aspects for years to come, he says. "Honestly, at the end of the day, I don't think the ability to create music sets anyone apart from another. I've always just considered myself another songbird for everyone, and I'm honored to share in the tradition of making new sounds and tunes that can hopefully relate to people like they did for me growing up."
