About the Event

Named  to the Chicago Tribune's 50 Most Significant Songwriters in the Last 50  Years, Austin, TX-based singer/songwriter Danny Schmidt has amassed a  cult following for his stunningly poetic, poignant imagery. With lyrical  depth drawing comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Townes Van Zandt, and Dave  Carter, Danny is considered a preeminent writer, an artist whose earthy  poetry manages to somehow conjure magic from the mundane, leading Sing  Out Magazine to tag him as: "Perhaps the best new songwriter we've heard  in the last 15 years." Performing solo almost exclusively, armed  with just his voice, his acoustic guitar, and his acute commentary,  Schmidt's an authentic timeless troubadour, one man sharing his truth in  the form of songs, unadorned and intimate. The understated effect can  be startlingly powerful. As songwriter Jeffrey Foucault put it:  "Everything about the man is gentle, except for his capacity for  insight, which is crushing."
