to the Chicago Tribune's 50 Most Significant
Songwriters in the Last 50 Years, Austin,
TX-based singer/songwriter Danny Schmidt has
been rapidly ascending from underground cult
hero to being widely recognized as an artist of
generational significance. With lyrical depth
drawing comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Townes Van
Zandt, and Dave Carter, Danny is considered a
preeminent writer, an artist whose earthy poetry
manages to somehow conjure magic from the
mundane, leading Sing Out Magazine to tag him
"Perhaps the best new songwriter we've heard in
the last 15 years."
