2019 Ameripolitan Award winner for Honky Tonk Male
“Whenever anyone asks me who is the next country artist to keep an eye on, I tell them Jesse Daniel from California. Every time. He is the future of country music, and he just won the 2019 Ameripolitan for Honky Tonk Male.”
- SAVING COUNTRY MUSIC
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.

Jesse Daniel included in Saving Country Music’s “Best Live Performances of 2018”
“Seeing him perform at the West Coast Country Music Festival outside of Ashland, OR proved he’s got the stuff to be receiving national and international attention…”

(Review of “SR-22 Blues” video)
“Filled with honky-tonk goodness, we get a blissful glimpse at the artist in his true element: the stage.”
-No Depression (review of “Hell Bent” video)
"Cali country is in good hands with Jesse Daniel and company. And his new video is here to show you that."
2018 "Musician Of The Year" Award Recipient
“Music lovers say they love authenticity… well it doesn’t get anymore authentic than Jesse Daniel’s self-titled debut.”
- Turnstyled Junkpiled Magazine
"Jesse Daniel is one of only latest batch of scary talented musicians (see The Coffis Brothers, Taylor 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."
No Depression, single review
"Hailed by the likes of No Depression, he's had critics and listeners falling head over heels for his enchanting tunes, and with good reason. "Hell Bent," is a perfect introduction to new listeners."
Paste Magazine, single review
"Jesse Daniel plays country music that makes you want to drink, dance, and howl on a hot summer night. We’re talking sheer down-home delightful honky-tonk music."
Dan Kadison, News Whistle
"Jesse Daniel is one of our favorite music discoveries here at Rock The Pigeon. He’s the talented singer-songwriter who combines the flavors of country, americana, folk, and rockabilly music to create something that feels reminiscent of an early time period but still feels fresh and exciting to the ears of music listeners, both young and old."
- Ryan Cassata, Rock The Pigeon
"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."
