Colorado singer-songwriter, Daniel Rodriguez, turns to his acoustic guitar for memorable, melodic hooks to accompany his poetic and contemplative folk songs. Boulder Weekly refers to Rodriguez’s voice as “a timeless folk voice, deep and hearty, weathered but comforting.”
With over a decade under his belt as one of the founding members and lead songwriters of the transcendental folk band, Elephant Revival, Rodriguez is well-versed in the Americana tour circuit. Before going on hiatus, after their third headlining Red Rocks show in May 2018, Elephant Revival had released six albums and performed countless shows and festivals across the nation as well as overseas.
Needing to fill the musical void that might have become following Elephant Revival’s hiatus announcement, Rodriguez immediately headed out on tour as a solo artist. He’s been chosen as main support for bands such as Fruition, Mandolin Orange, Josh Ritter, Birds of Chicago, and John Craigie in addition to being added to numerous festivals like Jam Cruise, WinterWonderGrass, and ARISE Music Festival.
Daniel Rodriguez released his debut collection of songs as an EP titled Your Heart The Stars The Milky Way on February 15, 2019.
“The songs are built on the poetry and warm croon Rodriguez has a reputation for, but they also contain a vulnerability that lends credence to the notion that pain can fuel art.”
“Rodriguez introduces a whole new melodic vocabulary for himself as a singer/songwriter, while maintaining the tone and musical dialect that he’s had with Elephant [Revival] over the years.”
“Rodriguez offers an arresting new batch of songs that meld his well-appreciated voice and lyrical prowess with his skilled musicianship.”
“There are some voices that reach out through the speakers and beg everyone in the room to stop their conversations for a moment and just listen. Elephant Revival’s Daniel Rodriguez has such a voice. It’s a timeless folk voice, deep and hearty, weathered but comforting.”
“Rodriguez dialed in his new tunes and his nurturing, harmonious voice has never sounded better.”
