Long known for darkly distorting traditional American popular song styles, Daniel Knox employs a new, more wide-ranging sonic palette on his latest work. The ten songs on Daniel Knox feature his powerful and unique baritone with an array of brass, strings, synthesizers, his usual band, and guest contributions from Brett Sparks (The Handsome Family) and Thor Harris (Bill Callahan, Swans, Shearwater).
Knox has scored for film and theater and has performed with artists such as Jarvis Cocker, the Handsome Family, Richard Buckner, Swans, Rasputina, Josephine Foster, Jon Langford, Nina Nastasia, Rufus Wainwright, Marc Ribot and Andrew Bird.
“An achingly lovely exercise in vintage, chrome-plated, wood-paneled Americana”
– UNCUT 8/10
“Knox possesses a ferocious talent that lures you deep into his twisted but fascinating world.”

His unique style of composition and performance connects the dots between players like Alex De Grassi and Kaki King, minimalist composers like Philip Glass and Steve Reich, and fellow innovators like Rhys Chatham and Sonic Youth.
