About the Artist

Jason Daniels has music in his blood. He writes and sings songs about the joys and pitfalls of a life well lived, and weaves these road worn stories together with his own inimitable blend of American Roots Music. Daniels draws from his years of travels and adventures that landed him everywhere from Europe, to Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir’s couch, to jail. His songs are honest, heartfelt reflections of the ups and downs that go along with living life to the fullest.
Music made an early impression on Daniels, having grown up around country music royalty. His Aunt and Uncle were Tammy Wynette and George Richey. Uncle George wrote “The Grand Tour” and “A Picture of Me Without You.” Daniels recalls being whisked away on a Lear jet to a tour bus as a young boy to see Aunt Tammy sing.
He grew up in the Napa Valley town of St. Helena, spent a few years in Southern California playing coffee houses, then moved to Marin County in the late 1980′s. His first band, the Incredible Band and other incarnations played throughout California, including the legendary Sweetwater in Mill Valley. In 2012, after eight years in Nashville, Daniels moved to Jackson, Mississippi, where he continues to write, play, and delve into the music he grew up loving.
His inaugural album, “Dashboard Visions and Rearview Reflections”, recorded in East Nashville at The Bomb Shelter, hit #28 on Jam Band chart in December 2013. Brian Robbins from Relix/JamBands.com described Daniels’s music as “a blend of rock/soul/blues/jazz/country with a classic Muscle Shoals vibe as its backbone.”
Daniels released the Vinyl LP of “Dashboard Visions and Rearview Reflections” in November following the “On the Hwy” Fall 2015 Colorado Tour.. He is currently playing with his band, the Jason Daniels Band and solo in the Jackson, Mississippi area and throughout the SouthEast. Daniels is preparing for his 2017 summer tour and sophomore release of his yet to be titled album.
