Great music is no secret to Florida guitarist Danny Freeman. Over the last several years, the acoustic rock singer-songwriter has taken his love for music to a new level. Danny dove into the music world headfirst, releasing his debut album All the People at age 17, followed by his sophomore full-length Second to Dream. After performing for a year as a solo artist, Freeman was offered a front page featured artist spot on mtvU’s Best Music On Campus website; three months later, he was also nominated for an MTV Woodie Award.
Danny is continuing that momentum with the release of Second to Dream, and pursuing large-scale impact with his music. The 23-year-old musician and entrepreneur recorded the album with his band, a well-known campus act at the University of Michigan. Prior to release, his songs have garnered praise from Larry Johnson, soundman for Johnny Cash and mastering engineer of Freeman’s latest album. Additionally, Lance Quinn, the multiplatinum producer of Bon Jovi, has praised Danny’s voice and sound.
“People today are distracted from what’s really important,” says Freeman. “We can do better than this. We can pursue our dreams amongst the chaos.” While sharing his songs, Danny hopes his listeners will take a ‘Second to Dream’ with him.
The songs range in message, emotion, and feel – from the radio hit “Waiting,” to the lion-king-esque “Compass;” from the upbeat track “In You” to the acoustic, calm, and contemplative “Fire.” The album even draws on an old rock sound for the killer tune “Breakin’ Down.” His musical appreciation for James Taylor is showcased in his cover of the classic “You Can Close Your Eyes,” the last track on All the People.
Second to Dream is available via the DannyFreemanMusic website, as well as iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, Napster, and many other media outlets. During the release period, Danny is offering the entire album as a free download with an optional donation on his site, and for a mere $3.99 on iTunes. Download your copy today!
