Danny Shafer: Keeping it simple
Danny Shafer to release latest solo effort at Planet Bluegrass show
By Stephanie Riesco - The Boulder Weekly
Shafer’s newest solo release, Wherever You Are, captures all of the heartfelt musings that the veteran singer-songwriter’s fans have come to anticipate. Lyrics like “Now there’s a working man, he’s out on the street, and I hope he starts that car / There’s women I’ve loved with all my heart and I don’t know where they are” twinge with Neil Young-inspired sentimentality, and others feel like the kind of poetic ruminations that would blossom and fade during a bus ride through open pastureland. | MORE

Boulder-based singer/songwriter Danny Shafer will release Wherever You Are this month — the troubadour’s first album in three years. Shafer took a year-and-a-half to work on this project in the studio, but the fact of the matter is that this particular album was two decades in the making.
“This is everything from me solo, to me with some strings, to a full-on sort of Darkness On The Edge of Town kind of thing with a full, big band,” Shafer said in a recent interview with The Marquee. “There are five new songs on the album, but some of this material goes all the way back. This is a collection of stuff I’ve done throughout the last 20 years.” | MORE
