Album Review

“Rambunctious, edgy, greasy and gritty in a good way, Jesse Daniel brings a lot of wild-eyed exuberance to a traditional country sound mixed with just enough of an old school rockabilly edge and true-to-life lyrics to keep it youthful and interesting.

Live Show Review

“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!”

Podcast Interview

"Jesse Daniel is one of only latest batch of scary talented musicians 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."

Single Review

"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."

Self Titled Album Review

"There’s so much to like on Jesse Daniel’s eponymous debut; the songs are strong, the production has just the right amount of grit and the vibe’s up-beat, like a Saturday night in a California roadhouse, with lashings of electric twang, witty lyrics and a real good thump to the drums."
