Daniel’s tale is one of youthful excess, years of struggle with drugs and alcohol, and—finally—redemption through his music.

Jesse Daniel plays authentic Honky Tonk country music for the working class. Born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains, his sound lends itself to the likes of Billy Joe Shaver, Merle Haggard and Buck Owens, all influences of his, while maintaining its uniqueness. Having seen his share of hard times, heartbreak, high times and low times, he possesses a coat of thick skin acquired only through a life lived. A must see for any music fan!

"Jesse Daniel is one of only latest batch of scary talented musicians (see The Coffis BrothersTaylor Rae, et all) to make his way out of the San Lorenzo Valley. I argue that someone should bottle San Lorenzo Singer/Songwriter Spring Water. There’s some serious coin to be made there."

- Michael Gaither, Songs & Stories Podcast


"Rising Americana superstar Jesse Daniel debuts his new single today "Soft Spot (For the Hard Stuff)." Currently hailing from California, Daniel unleashed his musical talents from early on. Taking note from his father who was also a talented musician and songwriter, Jesse followed in his footsteps, which is evident in his music. The result is a pure gold that comes straight from the heart."
