“Daniel Shearin is a singer/songwriter living on the outskirts of Asheville, NC. With focus on production as well as songwriting, Daniel experiments with different textures, instruments, and various “found sounds” to accompany his singing and finger-style guitar. From his home studio where he has produced the albums of several local artists in addition to his work at Echo Mountain Recording Studios (including Grammy-nominated “Infinite Arms” from Band of Horses), he records most of his songs himself. Here he leaves a lot of the arranging to what he calls “spontaneity and luck” to create a sometimes ambient, sometimes driving mix of folk and world music.
In 2014, Daniel was a finalist in international, national, and regional songwriting contests including a performance at The Lincoln Center in NYC this past October.
In addition to performing solo, he is a member of the Asheville indie-folk band River Whyless and was a member of Uncle Mountain before their split in 2012.”
