Daniel recently injured his foot, tearing some ligaments, and was forced to stay off of it for several weeks.  But he's doing well now and work continues on Daniel's forthcoming album, still untitled, but hopes to see the light of day in the fall. 

Some song samples will be available here very soon.  Stay tuned!

It's the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us the freedom of the press.
It's the Soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us the freedom of speech.
It's the Soldier, not the politicians that ensures
Our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
It's the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag.


Have a safe and peaceful Veteran's Day

Daniel is currently working on writing new material and hopes to have it ready for the fans sometime in 2014.

"You can't rush the creative process", said the singer, "I'll noodle and tinker with a song until I feel it's ready for the world to hear it.  It's not that I'm a perfectionist, it's just you only get one chance to make a first impression".

Daniel hasn't decided if it will be a full album or another EP.

Here's a recently found demo of a song Daniel wrote a while back called "The Corner Of My Mind".  Nice tune and really cool steel guitar part.

On this Veteran's Day we think it can be said best how we feel with the following lines from "Thank You":

          I WANNA OFFER MY THANKS TO THOSE MEN
          INSIDE THAT V.F.W. TONIGHT
          CAUSE THEY WERE WILLING TO DO WHATEVER IT TOOK
          INCLUDING LAYING DOWN THEIR LIVES

          ON LAND, ON SEA, AND IN THE AIR
          A TOUGH JOB DAY IN AND DAY OUT
          BUT THATS WHAT BEING AN AMERICAN SOLDIER
          IS ALL ABOUT


God bless America's military veterans!

Daniel has been hard at work lately, not creating music, but renovating his home. One item he built from the ground up was a California King bed using two pocket doors from his parent's approximately 1927 home as the headboard.

He added period correct trim around the doors, then stained it and put on three coats of spar urethane. The foot board, rails and legs are all made from oak, which were also stained and urethaned.

Not to worry, though, he assures us he's not forgotten about creating new music, just being creative in another medium!

Wow! It's hard to believe it's been 11 years. It was certainly a day of unmitigated tragedy, yet the days that followed reaffirmed America's resiliency. God bless the victims, the survivors and the heroes and God bless the United States.

Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful July Fourth!

Roughstock.com Review - “Sometimes Love”

This singer/songwriter remains an unknown to most fans of big market radio but in the regions that have played past singles like “Man Like Me” and “Until I Close My Eyes For Good,” they know what a strong singer and writer he is.

If the music charts were purely based on talent, Daniel would be a household name right up there with Lady Antebellum and Kenny Chesney. It’s an unforgiving industry and while many would’ve given up, Daniel’s persevered and with “Sometimes Love” he once again proves that he’s ready to have his songs played on mainstream radio of all market sizes.

Even if “Sometimes Love” doesn’t become a household hit for Daniel as a singer, the top tier artists would do well to think about covering the tune on their own albums.

It’s that good.

Daniel Smith Hits the Emotional Bullseye Again With His Stirring Ballad “Sometimes Love”

As regularly as spring rolls around, Daniel Smith emerges from his winter labors to deliver another mood-setting song to his expanding circle of fans. This spring the song is “Sometimes Love,” a melodic but sobering observation about our common emotional vulnerabilities:

Sometimes love can mean the bitter with the sweet,
There'll be times when you'll find it knocks you off your feet.
Sometime love reminds what’s been lost and left behind,
The heart can ache and sometimes break unexpectedly
Sometimes love can bring you to your knees.


The 6-foot-5 Kentucky troubadour is well-known for his always-on-target lyrics, whether it’s the sun-and-sand perfection of “Livin’ The Good Life,” the loud-and-liquid uproar of “Life, Liberty & The Pursuit Of Happy Hour” or the tenderly passionate “Until I Close My Eyes For Good.”

“Sometimes Love,” which Smith both wrote and produced, has just been delivered to radio via CDX Vol. 540 and PlayMPE and is now available to fans through most digital music retailers, including iTunes and Amazon.com.


2/20/2012
The new song, "Sometimes Love", is now available on iTunes.
