ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Daniel Link's "Color of Rain" represents a return to long play album rock. Designed to engage the listener with rich textures of sonic ambiance, this work offers the diversity of Daniel's insight, songwriting and vocal performance. Each of the 15 songs were designed to stand on their own yet hang together as a collective body of work that tells the broader story. There is a landscape of sound that shifts between southern pop, touching ballads, alternative rock and new county. In short, this CD represents the highest level of excellence and creativity that an independent artist can achieve.

As a contemporary adult rock artist, Daniel remains true to his musical influences. As a young man growing up in a small town on the Mississippi River, Daniel spent his teenage years submersed in albums by Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles, Tom Petty and Dan Fogelberg. He spent hours listening to
Classic albums while studying lyrics and journaling by candlelight. At seventeen, Link announced to his parents that he wanted to learn piano. A week later, there was a Wurlitzer upright piano in his house, and by the end of the first day Daniel was playing "Sara" by Fleetwood Mac, Completely by ear. Soon after Daniel's journal became the source of his own lyrics, while his ear for popular music became his tool for composing, and he's been writing music that way ever since.

His unique vocal presence embodies the lushness of Chis Isaak and the passion of George Michaels all tied together with Daniel's subtle southern accent; the result is a sound that is his own. His quick wit and "boy next door" personality moves audiences to want to take him home and feed him after his performances. While Daniel has no problem sustaining a two-hour concert, there is no pretense in him. His shows are not about being a star; they are about spending an evening with friends and great music. Thus, his career has secured him with loyal fans from the West Coast, the Mid-west and Texas.

Color of Rain will stand the test of time
Daniel Link’s CD Color of Rain is the first CD in a long time that I sat down and listened to it from beginning to end. I usually just pop a new CD in and go about what I am doing but this CD deserved more than that. The music and lyrics are so well blended to each other that it feels like listening to an old friend, but with a new found awareness. From the opening tracks of Evergreen to the last song, So, Goodbye is a CD worthy of much acclaim. I am a lover of music and always on the look out for something new; thanks to Daniel Link’s CD Color of Rain I have found it. If you buy just one CD this year, make it Color of Rain. It will be a CD that will stand the test of time.

Jean from Texas

WOW!
A joy to listen to...a heart full of poetry and feelings.
The remix on Altar Boy has brought more to the lyrics. Essence is fabulous and when I close my eyes I can feel the love!


From "Editors Notes", by Michael Barnes
Met Austin musician Daniel Link in the canary-colored quiet of Flightpath Coffee House at 51st and Duval streets. His new CD, “The Color of Rain,” will be released Sunday. It’s a richly produced melange of pop-rock and spiritual meditations, well worth more than a few listens.

I brought "Color of Rain" to work today and had the nurses play it during surgery. It was a great big super duper hit. I have been passing out your website all day.

An adoring fan

Beautiful music, thoughtful lyrics!
This is a thoroughly enjoyable album of innovative songs. All songs obviously have Daniel's touch but each one is very different - no cookie cutter songs here! It's about time the music industry demanded TALENT and a GREAT VOICE! I listen to the CD when I'm working, at the gym, in the car, before going to bed, when I'm stressed, when I'm happy....well, you get it - all the time! I LOVE IT! The music complements Daniel's rich voice and thoughtful lyrics. More, more, more, please. Keep it coming! Thanks, Daniel! If you love his work, spread the word. He's also a great guy - met him in Austin, TX. WE NEED TO HELP HIM GROW HIS FAN BASE, SO TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THIS CD - buy a ton of them for Christmas presents!
