Musician finds groove with his missing link. Daniel Link is a singer/songwriter pinao player who fronts a two-man band that will perform at 8 tonight at Momo’s. Link’s folk-rock has caught the attention of Austin and elsewhere. His first two releases recieved favorable reviews. “The humanity displayed here is accessible to anyone whos’s ever felt left of societies center,” Billboard magazine wrote in 2001 of Link’s debut, “Out of the Silence.”
Of 2002’s “Ghost Stories,” Billboard wrote, “Once listeners scratch past the surface, they’ll discover an artist who is honing his own distinctive voice and sound.” Last November, Link put an ad in the paper calling for a fellow musician to join his act. Johnny Big, formerly of DysFunkshun Junkshun, answered and quickly proved to be the perfect musical counterpart to Link.
Now, with Johnny Big on board and striving to create a new album, Link says this is the most poignant time of his career. He says his goal is “to stay true to my voice, my spirit, and make music that connects and resonates with people.”
