Both Drew and I are pretty excited about this record. Separately, each song sounds very different. But Dan Miraldi has an uncanny talent to put different sounds together to create something that is an unmistakable representation of himself as a rock and roll songwriter and musician. Dan shared a great analogy to a “braid” that weaves in elements of his influences and becomes his own sound. We also pent some time diving through Dan’s history and his own personal journey through music, like first demos, early bands, and learning how to put together a tour, plus his roots as a folk singer. Also, even though this is a Cleveland podcast, we did spend some time talking about what life is like in New York, his adventures in music there, and how it’s changed his songwriting.
