Dan Israel (CD-release)
Dan Israel has quietly made quite a music career for himself, one filled with honest, affecting songwriting that equally captures both the euphoric highs and gloomy lows of modern living, all without a hint of pretension or posturing. He's currently celebrating the release of his 11th album, Crosstown Traveler, a compelling new batch of tunes that smoothly blends his quieter, more reflective songs with a louder, more robust roots-rock sound, all the while colored by Israel's astute lyrics and his rich, weathered vocals. He's always been a musician who deserves a wider audience, and hopefully with this new collection of strong, striking songs, the acclaim and recognition will come to one of the area's most consistent songwriters.
