Danny Black is the instrumental, guitar-only project from Dan Schwartz of indie rock band Good Old War. The debut album, Adventure Soundtrack, is set for release via Nettwerk on February 24th.
Danny, who has spent the last several years on the road with Good Old War and is an outdoor enthusiast (rock climber, trail runner, hiker, etc.), wanted to create an album to inspire listeners to go out and create their own adventures. Recorded in a sleepy New Jersey beach town, Adventure Soundtrack weaves together a patchwork of acoustic, electric, and 12-string guitar, embracing folk, progressive, rock and blues. Inspired by a longtime passion for six-string virtuosos such as Leo Kotke, Tommy Emmanuel, and Robert Fripp of King Crimson, the album utilizes the guitar to conjure evocative imagery as expansive as the scenery Danny loves to explore.
