Besides Daniel is an independent folk band from Atlanta, Georgia. Embarking in 2001 as the solo project of Danny Brewer, the effort briefly became a duo of two lovers. In the winter of 2009 the group outgrew the iconic pair as the romance of the duo dissolved. Today Besides Daniel endures as a full band. Crafting unique folk songs about friendship, faith, daydreams, romance, and pain, Besides Daniel hopes to inspire love, beauty, creativity, and thoughtfulness.
The current line up includes Aaron Schorch (drums), Ryan Robertson (bass) and Danny Brewer (guitar/vocals) though a live show could, and most often does include their friends who give of their time and talent playing an eclectic array of various instruments such as; sax, cello, violin, melodica, tambourine, banjo, accordion, keys, organ, and whatever else is close at hand. At home in the hot, humid summers, chilly winters, and otherwise perfect southern metropolis of Atlanta, you’ll hear a bit of the south ring through in their repertoire. While blending many influences, the group remains in rhythm with the sounds that have always come from the south-being that the members grew up about the center of Georgia.
When: Friday, July 13, 2012 – 7:30pm & 9:30pm shows.
Where: The Velvet Note – 4075 Old Milton Parkway – Alpharetta, GA
