Standard Deviation is now officially released. This is my tenth record, and I'll be honest, I'm more proud of this album than any I've made previously, and I'm thrilled that I'm finally able to share it with you all.
You may preview (and hopefully purchase) the new record through any of these fine outlets:
For the record, if this is a thing you care about:
Bandcamp & CDBaby are great to artists. Apple and Spotify are sorta ok. Google & YouTube are barely tolerable. And Amazon is absolute crap for artists. They basically facilitate the selling of stolen CDs. So please purchase with your conscience. Thanks!
Thank you to Welcome To Night Vale for giving the song Standard Deviation its world premier on Episode 131 of their podcast. That's the perfect send off, I'd say.
The songbook has been updated to include Danny's most reecent albums. The 4th Edition is now available to purchase . . . now in print and in electronic formats!
The book includes the chords, lyrics, technical notes, stories, and commentary for every song that Danny has ever recorded and released.
If you're new to Danny's music, and if Standard Deviation is your first window into his tunes, here's some other songs you might enjoy that have a similar depth, complexity, and humanity to them. Enjoy!
WE NEED A BETTER WORD
video & essay
Here's a video we recorded for the song We Need A Better Word. It was shot live in Fischer Hall, where Carrie and I were married.
And if you're interested, I hope you'll read this essay I wrote about the song. It expands upon Carrie and my experiences with fertility and miscarriage, and the insights that stemmed from those experiences.
Danny also wants to make it prefectly clear that Martin has never asked him (much less obligated him) to give any sort of public endorsement of their products. He's doing so because he feels strongly about supporting businesses and organizations that do exceptional work, and exist in the world as good citizens, with good conscience.
Please explore the site . . . listen to some of the free songs posted here, watch a couple of the live performance videos, peruse the lyric library. And get to know Danny's music better. Thanks for visiting.
