"Dream Big". The music throughout this album is in keeping with the Americana or country rock sound for the most part, but the very first thing to grab you is likely to be the artist’s ideas, and the warm, genuine sound of his voice. It’s compelling, endearing, and very easy to connect with; crisp and professional, organic and uplifting energy, and some hopeful and inspiring lyrics. This is easily accessible and likely to be effective in any number of settings, with any number of audiences. It all just works.
“Acoustic Souvenir - The songs are straight ahead Americana Texas Folk with that down home drawl and touch of blues. All of the acoustic work, be it guitar or harmonica flourishes, were tastefully applied and executed with a craftsman’s skill. Classic Texas country-folk-blues tunes in the finest tradition. Let’s get out and give his new recording a warm welcome.”
“Acoustic Souvenir - His lived-in, weathered voice has all the familiar qualities of an old friend. Beginning with “Sunset Highway”, its arrangement and presentation sits in the space between Guy Clark and Butch Hancock’s finer records, and contemplates love and the passing of time; a fine start. “Old Man On the Pier” drips evocative imagery and Everitt’s vocal nestles in closely to the narrative. And his Texas troubadour credentials are confirmed on “The Ballad of Aubrey Call”. Wait for the ending.”
“Danny’s first solo release in six years, this Texas songwriter’s gentle masterpiece, "Acoustic Souvenir", is so compact and uncluttered you could almost believe the Texas Music Awards' 2014 Singer/Songwriter of the Year recorded it on the fly.”
“Cold Wind Cold Rain - Danny’s a great singer/songwriter in the true Texas tradition....kind of a cross-over country/troubadour singing style somewhere between Jackson Browne and Kenny Loggins.”
“Cold Wind Cold Rain - great writing and masterful arrangements. Lyric-based with lines that matter, this album exudes comfort in every cut.”
