Daniel Link- Color of Rain

(photo of Daniel Link and Johnny Big by Cindy Chang)

If you want to get a nice dose of pop country, check out Daniel Link.
He takes his influences from Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles and Tom Petty, but along with accomplished bassist and sound designer Johnny Big (who has performed with Billy Idol and Bo Diddly, just to name a few), Daniel isn't afraid to explore sounds and song construction outside of standard southern pop. His brassy vocal timbre also adds a nice touch to his songs. The production quality of Color of Rain is cool and polished and features a band wagon of other established Austin musicians such as Cyd Cassone on drums.

Listen to:
"Bruce Wayne"
"Angel Falls"
