Daniel Knox | Chicago
Praised for his dark and cruel distortions of traditional American song styles—inspiring collaborations with Jarvis Cocker, Thor Harris, and the Handsome Family along the way— Chicago-based songwriter Daniel Knox’s latest work, Daniel Knox (Carrot Top Feb 2015), blends his rich, shadowy baritone and vaudevillian piano compositions with a new, more wide-ranging sonic palette to invite listeners into his twisted world of time travel, abandoned shopping centers, and growing up in a slowly fading middle America.
“Sly and refreshingly mean-spirited”
"Possesses a ferocious talent that lures you deep into his twisted but fascinating world"
"An achingly lovely exercise in vintage, chrome-plated, wood-paneled Americana | 8/10"
