For an evening of first-class rock, get ready to take flight as Danny Beissel’s Featherborn touches down at Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Nov. 16 at 7:30 PM.
Beissel has spent his career sharing the stage with legendary artists and has recently released his debut solo album, Featherborn, calling it “the culmination of (his) musical voyage.”
Danny Beissel is a well-rounded energetic musician who will be joined by Conrad Korsch-Bass (Rod Stewart Band), Leroy Romans (The Wailers/Third World Band). Beissel will play guitar and keyboard, as well as sing. With a charismatic stage presence, he has performed with the likes of Jeff “Skunk” Baxter (Steely Dan/Doobie Brothers), James Burton (Elvis), and Barry Goudreau and Fran Sheehan (formerly of Boston).
Featherborn was recorded at the iconic Blackbird Studio in Nashville with esteemed engineer John McBride (Martina McBride, Stevie Nicks, Garth Brooks) and features Charlie Colin, former founding member of the Grammy-winning Rock Band Train, on guitar/bass and vocals and Scott Underwood (also former founding member of Train) performing double duty as drummer and producer.
However, what makes Featherborn truly an all-star project are the first-class special guest appearances by friends and former bandmates including Baxter, Brian Quinn (lead guitarist of multi-platinum rock band Candlebox), and many more.
“This album is extremely personal to me, as these are the songs I’ve been waiting to record and the players I’ve been waiting to record with,” said Beissel. “I can’t wait to finally come back home to share my album with my friends and family.”
If you have an ear for rock, Beissel is an artist you’ll want to get to know. As Denny Dyroff of The Unionville Times said, “If you look at rock vocalist Danny Beissel’s long and varied resume, you’ll quickly notice that there is just ‘one degree of separation’ between the Philadelphia rocker and many of rock music’s all-time greats.”
He has caught their ears, and there is a good chance he will catch yours, too.
