Jeff Daniels with The Ben Daniels Band

The world largely knows Michigan-raised Jeff Daniels as an actor with Golden Globe nominated film roles (Woody Allen's "The Purple Rose of Cairo," "Something Wild," "The Squid and the Whale") and a Tony Award nomination for his Broadway run in "God of Carnage." But these days, Daniels can be found on the road with his guitar, playing the bluesy folk music he kept quiet for so long. “[Songwriting has] been a wonderful creative friend for me between all the movies and theater and television,” Daniels says of the nearly 400 songs he’s amassed, songs that display a good-natured humor and down-to-earth honesty. Daniels' music career has turned into a growing family project, with his son at the helm of the recordings. "Ben went to school for sound engineering, which is great for me," Daniels laughs, reflecting on their at-home studio sessions where together they hone in on the singer-songwriter style Daniels admires from artists like Steve Goodman, Arlo Guthrie and John Prine. The New York Times says, “Jeff Daniels sings his songs with a growly twang and barbed good humor, at its high point evoking a transcendental picture of American wanderlust.”
