MARCH Daniel Link Band headlines 1st SXSW Out Showcase w/ Amy Ray (Indigo Girls)


"I've been very lucky, in that I met incredibly influential in the local music scene early on.  Xanna Don't being one of the first.  She believed in me so much, and really fought to get my placement in SXSW's first "out" showcase.  Initially, my application for a featured showcase spot was rejected.  But Xanna literally campaigned for me, and within days, I was notified of my official showcase spot."





" Stage view of our full house South by Southwest showcase, at Rainbow Cattle Company in Austin.  It was a dream come true...to walk into my first SXSW showcase, with a killer band, a very successful record and a terrific review in Billboard.  I'll never forget the feeling playing that first song for that crowd in that space...it was incredible, a moment frozen in time for me."

IT'S A GOOD LIFE 2003

Daniel & band hit the road, playing exhaustively to packed houses across Texas Daniel & band make numerous television appearances & headline music festivals


"2003 was a good year of hard core gigging.  While our playing had become air tight...the set list was beginning to become stale...we'd been playing and promoting the same music for three years now.  By the end of the year, we had all but disbanded.  In hindsight, it was a natural creative evolution for all of us.  To this day, I'm still very close with Cheri & Chelle."

OUT OF THE SILENCE (2000)

SILENCE COVER.jpg

"The humanity displayed here is accessible to anyone who’s ever felt left of societies center. And the music is potent enough to work for those who simply want sweet melodies and memorable hooks."

GHOST STORIES (2002)

GHOST STORIES.png

"With its Stevie Nicks/Belladonna album cover homage and its country-tinged pop songs ( the best of which include "Tangled," "Someone In Austin," "True Perspective," "Be Home Soon," "Christine," and "Telepathy" ) , Austin-based Daniel Link's Ghost Stories ( LOAM ) fulfills and expands on the promise of 2000's Out Of The Silence."

COLOR OF RAIN (2005)

"Link is an accomplished tunesmith.  But two other things stand out on "Color of Rain" - Link's resilient voice, which recalls Michael Stipe's at times and Big's arrangement of countless instruments and backup vocals"

BOOK OF SHADOWS (2012)

SHADOWS.png

"Book of Shadows is polished, evoking the Wallflowers as much as Elvis Costello in a Southwest alt-rock kind of way.
