To be announced
Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Fears is obsessed with evolving–finding new ways to express emotion and feeling. Fears grew up soaking up different musical worlds—the Christian and gospel music of his family; the R&B, soul, and hip-hop his friends introduced to him; and the classical music he studied at The University of Texas and Yale University.
Fears has been a featured artist on NPR’s Live Sessions, named KUTX’s Artist of the Month in 2021, and been a recipient of grants from non-profit Sonic Guild and the City of Austin. He’s twice been nominated in the Austin Music Awards—for Best R&B and Best Horn Player. For his upcoming project “Close to Home,” Fears leveraged a Kickstarter campaign to create a live taping and recording of his original music with a string quintet.
