Daniel Boling has been a folksinger and songwriter here and there around the U.S. for over thirty years. He writes in a folk-influenced style and performs with finger-picked guitar and banjitar supporting a good, clear tenor voice. Daniel's songs tell great stories that cover the spectrum from funny to heartbreaking and all the territory in between - songs of family life, love, friendship, and joys and sorrows along the way. He describes his music as "Family Friendly Folk". Daniel's 4th CD, He Dreams, was released in April 2009 and features 13 new original songs. The recording is sparse with an almost live feel, but very clean. A few friends lent their musical talents to some of the tracks including Jack Williams, Meredith Wilder, Jim Schwar, Jimmy Abraham, and Suzanne Shelton. His 3rd CD, The Old International, was released in June, 2003 and features a supporting cast of dear friends from the road including Bill Ward, T.R. Ritchie, Still on the Hill, Dave Nachmanoff, Susan Clark, Orrin Star and a few more. Along with his previous releases, Welcome Home in 2000 and Perfectly Stable in 1999, the album is enjoying air play in a variety of U.S. radio markets as well as in Europe. A lot of folks have found Daniel's music on the internet too, making his song Flight 93 the #1 Folk and World Folk song on MP3.com in October, 2001.
