Daniel Stokes / Press

“Likewise, Daniel Stokes proved to be another incredible live act who has created a promising career touring all over Austin. Opening for MilkDrive, Stokes provided a completely different sound, a sound for the songwriter and audience alike. Writing tunes like “15 Beans” and “Harmony,” he delves into the ins-and-outs of life that any listener could relate to, yet elevates them to a level of bluesy acoustic bliss. Stokes’ quiet confidence behind the mic and slightly raspy voice (reminiscent of Ryan Bingham) truly connected with the sweet simplicity of his sole guitar to produce a stage presence that was humble yet utterly commanding. While this talented musician plays classic Austin venues like Jovita’s and Saxon Pub, it was great to be at the Driskill and hear his soft sound without the distractions and noise of a typical bar setting.”

"FRR has made to #100 and today we're featuring the same band that got things going for us, The Flatcar Rattlers. Here's to another hundred. Thanks for listening."

“ "This Austin native is a soulful singer and gifted songwriter. His raw talent and thoughtful lyrics shine through his voice and acoustic guitar, but with the swagger of a natural born entertainer. The guy has it all. Stokes draws from an eclectic range of influence from Folk, Bluegrass and Americana to Reggae, Soul and Roots Americana. His voice has a traveled character well beyond his years lending an infectious urge to listen to the album on repeat..." ”

"Special Guest: Daniel Stokes. You've got to be at this show."

“ A day late. The Flatcar Rattlers have a new CD out. If you're in Austin, you should be able to get it at Waterloo. For now, here's the Rattler's singer (Daniel) and guitar player (Phil) accompanied by Cale Thibodeaux on banjo covering the Boss' Atlantic City.”
