ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you like Hayes Carll, Todd Snider, Townes Van Zandt, James McMurtry, Slaid Cleves or Tom Russell you’re going to love ‘Ash and Bone’.

‘Ash and Bone’ is the acclaimed Debut release from Award Winning singer-songwriter Dan Weber. Songs on ‘Ash and Bone’ are getting rave reviews from Fans, DJ’s, Victory Review and American Songwriter Magazine to a finals appearance at the 2012 Kerrville 'New Folk' competition in Texas to accolades in the Great American Song Contest, Great Lakes and Tumbleweed Songwriting Contests, the Woody Guthrie and the BPA contest and the prestigious Dave Carter Songwriting Competition.

Featuring some of Portland’s finest studio and touring musicians ‘Ash and Bone’ contains liberal doses of classic Americana pedal steel, Dobro, banjo, fiddle, and mandolin as well as a fine sprinkling of piano, organ, cello and accordion throughout.

‘Ash and Bone’ includes the iconic 'Hank and Jesus' which has received extensive national and international airplay and was part of the 2012 Kerrville ‘New Folk’ competition finals.

"‘Hank and Jesus’ by Dan Weber is easily the best folk song I heard last year. It has a timeless and authentic ‘Me and Bobby McGee’ feel to it."
- Jack Bohl, DJ, ‘Pastures of Plenty’ 90.7 FM Portland, OR Jan. 2012

"Sorting through over 300 new CD's received by The Acoustic Revival to create a ‘Best of’ show play list was a challenge. However, ‘Ash and Bone’ with ‘Hank and Jesus’ easily rose to the top. Great songwriting!"
- Jim Canales, ‘The Acoustic Revival’, 90 FM WWSP, Jan 2013

The breakout record also includes the heartbreaking ‘Goodbye to Dad’,, a 2011 West Coast Songwriter's ‘Song of the Year’ winner, 2012 2nd Place in the Tumbleweed Song Contest and a 2011 Great Lakes Songwriting Contest Semi-Finalist.

"Weber's writing is as strong as any in the contemporary folk community. ‘Goodbye to Dad’ is one of the best original tunes that I have heard in a long time."
- Christopher Anderson, Victory Review: Acoustic Music Magazine Jan. 2013

The bluegrass tinged ‘Sarah Ann’, a true story by renowned author Michael Perry (‘Population: 485’, ‘Truck’, etc.), that Weber so vividly brings to life was a Finalist in the 2011 Great American Song Contest and the deeply confessional ‘Lost and Found’, with insights like “this whiskey glass I’m drinking, was a desert once I’m thinking, fire and water making love at last” was given an Honorable Mention in 2012 in American Songwriter Magazine's Lyric Contest.

‘Ash and Bone’ also includes the timeless anthem ‘Take the Central Georgia Home’, a classic train ballad from the closing days of the Civil War when Confederate soldiers regretfully returned home to the war ravaged South,

What others are saying:

“Dan Weber has an instant classic on his hands. ‘Ash and Bone’ is a superb debut"
- Diane Hunt, DJ, ‘Folk Espresso’, KBOO Portland, OR Jan 2012

“I love Dan’s songs and he tells really good stories.”
- Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Legendary Folk Troubadour April 2012

"Ash and Bone" is a tapestry, woven of songs that could have been written by Hayes Carll or Guy Clark. Listen to "Sarah Ann" or "Take the Central Georgia Home" and you will hear the depth of Weber’s phenomenal musical growth. In short, it’s fantastic!"
- Ernie Hopseker, Ocean Beach Radio Jan 2013

“Dan Weber sings short stories with the exuberance of Kerouac, the economy of Hemingway, and the melodic elegance of Hank Williams.”
- Tim Connor, Americana Songwriter April 2012

"Dan Weber is the classic mid-life overnight sensation”
- Matt Miner, Promoter: Matt Miner Presents Oct 2012

"Amazingly new to the music trip, but Dan's stories and melodies sound like they were carved back there, somewhere.”
- Inessa Anderson, KINK 101.9 FM Portland, OR May 2012

"Weber is one performer that’s living proof that you never know when a music career will bloom."
- Tim Hirsch, Pacific City Sun

Highly anticipated, 100% rewarding
The only thing missing from Dan Weber's debut CD is the great stories you get at a Dan Weber live performance. But, the stories are all there in the ash and bone of each song. You'll meet Sarah Ann and you'll meet a dead head with a backpack (what would Hank and Jesus do?), and you'll meet the vanquished but not beaten Confederate soldiers who take the Central Georgia Railroad home. They're characters, but with Dan's masterful songwriting they're characters who will soon be your friends.

This is no flash in the pan songwriting and these songs will stand the test of time. You'll look forward to hearing and rehearing them for years to come (I know I have). The production is spot on and the musicians are top rate. A+++++ all the way through. Can't wait for the sophomore effort. Get to work, Dan.
