Jeff Daniels w/ The Ben Daniels Band

When you think of "grassroots" and "down to Earth," you don't normally think of a movie star. You especially don't think of a movie star the caliber of Jeff Daniels. Yet that is exactly what Jeff has accomplished with his sixth recording, Days Like These. Daniels has proven that he is not an actor who sings, but an accomplished singer/songwriter who's musical talent does not require the support of his acting.

Artist Bio

DAYS LIKE THESE is the sixth recording of Jeff Daniels’ music and is available under his independent label Boomadeeboom Records (jeffdaniels.com) Jeff has spent the past twelve years playing throughout the country. He has shared the stage with Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt and Keb Mo’, and has studied with Stefan Grossman. In 2012, the Martin Guitar Company began selling an OM Jeff Daniels Custom Artist Edition Guitar.

“When I moved to New York City to chase acting as a career, what I didn’t plan on was being influenced by all the playwrights I would work with Off-Broadway. In particular Lanford Wilson - who would later go on to win a Pulitzer Prize for his play, TALLEY’S FOLLY - taught me so much about the writing process; the love/hate relationship one has with such a solitary pursuit, the endless rewriting, the search and struggle to find a way to say it better. In Hollywood, the joke is ask any actor what he wants to do next and he’ll say, ‘Direct.’ All I wanted to do was write. So, I did. Almost forty years later, I still am. DAYS LIKE THESE is my best effort so far.”

What the press is saying about Jeff Daniels:

“Recalling John Prine, Daniels is a semi-autobiographical yarn spinner in the mode of Mr. Guthrie and the much missed Steve Goodman.” - New York Times

“Many film actors have worked in TV, and many dabble in the theater. But Jeff Daniels is one of only a handful who can count a respectable musical career alongside acclaimed work on film, TV and stage.” - The Detroit News

“Jeff Daniels brings his original music to 54 Below in an intimate musical evening. The songs are tuneful, funny, honest and true, filled with laugh-out-loud humor and poignancy, this is a wondrous night with one of television’s biggest stars that you don’t want to miss.” - Broadway.com

Ben Daniels Band:

When Ben Daniels decided he was going to be a musician, it was more than a career choice. A natural poet, this young songwriter went to school on Bob Dylan, Robert Johnson, and Jack White, among others. His lyrics speak directly to a younger generation that hears, sees, and thinks about the very things he’s writing. From their opening song to the finale of their set, the Ben Daniels Band cuts through with their originality, musicianship, and a sound that spans Americana, Blues, Jazz, and Rock.

Throughout years of touring, BDB has played numerous venues in Michigan, New York City, Washington D.C., and Nashville . As a solo artist, Ben has stepped on the stage in Austin, TX at the Cactus Cafe, as well as The Barns at Wolf Trap. The son of actor Jeff Daniels, he has quietly monitored what it takes to live life as an artist. Beyond a passed down talent, the Ben Daniels Band believes in hard work, perseverance, and creatively challenging themselves and their audience.
