Category: Jason Daniels Music News

Album is OUT!!! Get it here or on iTunes, CD baby etc… Check out some reviews.

” I’ve had it plugged in the car player for the past two weeks. Reminds me of Dylan circa Nashville Skyline/New Morning days. “–Sam Welker, Americana Daily

“Remember when country was country?
Jason Daniels does. He proves it on his debut album Dashboard Visions and Rearview Reflections. Every song on this album just screams that classic country vibe, with Daniels’ old school sounding voice, where the minor imperfections do no real harm, but instead, make the song that more unique.”–Mississippi Mixing

“Recorded in East Nashville, miles from Music Row, this is country music that is full of soul and grit with genuine blue collar dirt under its fingernails. The songs live up to the album title as they look forward with optimism and back with some regret. Well worth seeking this one out.”–Maverick Magazine

” On his debut dashboard Visions And Rearview Reflections JASON DANIELS mixes country, blues, rock, and New Orleans jazz, but amazingly never loses his balance. Surprising rhythms and the involvement of exquisite pianist Peter Keys provide diverse contrasts and give the album an extra stylistic diversity. The result is such a varied mix with a lot of Heart & Soul. A CD for Americana / roots fans with wide musical tastes.”–Country Jukebox

““I really enjoyed the richness of the sound, the good spirit all along the tracks..perfect for a drive on route 66″–Mike Penard, ISA Radio France

“JASON DANIELS is a new name on me. He’s from Nashville, but is one of these guys who headed out of Music City to pursue his musical career, and ended up in Jackson, Mississippi, known as the “City With Soul”. He has Country music credentials. His uncles were George & Paul Richey (George was married to Tammy Wynette), but the Jackson soul influence really shines through too.“On The Highway”, a good uptempo road song, and “Wide Open Spaces” is a strong ballad that I really enjoyed.”–Country Music and Dance

“Daniels has a huge and unique songwriter talent. He creates a world untouched over lost loves, travel and the beautiful American landscape. The musical content is remarkable. The album contains a huge variety of styles and influences, from southern ‘rock to New Orleans funk and blues to pop and country…”–Rootstime

“Jason Daniels “immigrated” from Nashville, TN to Jackson, MS, and you can feel both influences in this wonderful debut. The horn laced soul kicking off the lead track “You’re An Angel” evokes Ottis Redding, yet Jason’s voice has an underlying twang to his bluesy voice. “Take Me From the City” and “Riding Back to Memphis” tilt more towards Johnny Cash boom-chicka country with a nice touch of organ that leaves the soul vibe as a flavorful backdrop this time. “On The Highway” is a pure hybrid of funk, blues and country. It does not take you long of listening to realize the variance of Jason’s American roots music influences and how he has an uncanny knack of doing interesting and entertaining things with them in both subtle hybrids and very unsubtle direct homages. Combine this with lyrics that obviously come straight from his heart, and musical backups including people who have played for Kid Rock, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Son Seals and others, and you have a CD that defies you at times not to tap your feet, play air guitar, or sit back, close your eyes, nod your head in time to the music and smile.”–Music Morsels

“If it wasn’t for his linage, his pals and his geographic travels, we’d be saying this with tongue in cheek, but we aren’t. And what we are saying is this is the best Van Morrison record since the ones Van did in the early 70s. With Jackson, Nashville and Napa Valley in his blood, a love of blue eyed soul and the rest of the early Morrison moves in tow, this is a driving set that delivers the classic rock stuff so many are looking for but few find. Killer stuff that delightfully opens your jaded ears.”‘–Midwest Record

“It’s pleasant, even tempered, and a little classic rock-ish at points, but listening to JD brings to mind my man Coe’s immortal words…if that ain’t Country, you can kiss my ass! (Though classy Daniels wouldn’t use that language).”–Roctober Magazine

Great review from the UK’s Maverick Magazine!!

www.maverick-country.com
Jason Daniels – DASHBOARD VISIONS & REARVIEW REFLECTIONS (Self- released) HHHI This newcomer has music in his genes. His uncles George and Paul Richey were successful country songwriters with George also being one of Tammy Wynette’s husbands. Though he lived in Nashville for five years, Jason moved further south to Jackson, Mississippi a year or so back and the music here is the perfect crossroads of where country and soul meet. I’ve long been a big fan of country-soul. Wasn’t George Jones (who Paul Richey once managed) the greatest white soul singer of them all? Recorded in East Nashville, miles from Music Row, this is country music that is full of soul and grit with genuine blue collar dirt under its fingernails. The songs live up to the album title as they look forward with optimism and back with some regret. Well worth seeking this one out. www.jasondanielsmusic.com

Review From Country Jukebox

Google translate: On his dashboard Visions And Rearview Reflections titled debut, JASON DANIELS rejects Although musically far from the window and poaching in country, blues, rock, and New Orleans jazz-colored alike, but amazingly never loses his balance. What is the grown up in Nashville and living in Jackson, Mississippi singer and songwriter like privilege, in which unusual title. Surprising rhythms and Stimmungswechse as the involvement of exquisite pianist Peter Keys provide diverse contrasts and give the album an extra stylistic diversity. The result is such a varied mix with a lot of Heart & Soul. A CD of Americana / roots fans with wide musical tastes erected.

Full review from Rootstime in Belgium…….a few inaccuracies, but not bad I must say

http://rootstime.be/

With a title like Dashboard Visions And Rearview Reflections are the ambitions in advance all clear. Jason Daniels describes itself as “a new artist cut from old cloth” and that makes the curiosity even greater. The debut album can be seen as an introduction to a man who has his roots in the country deeply rooted. Because, Daniels grew up in Nashville in a family as it were breathed country. His uncles were none other than George and Paul Richey as producers knew great fame in the 70s. Uncle George was also married to Tammy Wynette and Uncle Paul wrote a hit for including Johnny Cash (The Barron). In short, for an artist no wrong habitat.

Daniels moved to Jackson, Mississippi, and it was there that he was hit by the blues and soul of the city and its surroundings. Dashboard Visions And Rearview Reflections is the result of all these influences on the life of Jason Daniels.

His ambitions with Dashboard Visions And Rearview Reflections met? Established that Daniels has a huge and unique songwriter talent. He creates a world untouched over lost loves, travel and the beautiful American landscape. The musical content is remarkable. The album contains a huge variety of styles and influences, from southern ‘rock to New Orleans funk and blues to pop and country, but this diversity is also the Achilles heel of the album. It leads me to regard the lack of a clear core or heart of the album and that’s a shame because the talent of Daniels is unmistakable.

The vocals of Jason Daniels knows its limitations and rubs occasionally against the limits of the possible, making some vocals make a forced impression. Musically speaking, however, to enjoy to speak of a successful project and the album also offers plenty sufficient basis for a nice sequel.
