Quiet, meditative, soulful — Besides Daniel isn’t going to grab you by the throat to make you pay attention.

But there’s something satisfying and seductive in the evocative lyrics, subtle instrumentation, and Danny Brewer’s beautiful vocals.

Besides Daniel has launched a PledgeMusic campaign: The Long Awaited Full-Length Record. Like other such online campaigns, supporters can help get new music produced by effectively pre-ordering the album. Pledges start at $10, which include access to all campaign updates and a digital download. (The most recent PledgeMusic campaign I supported, btw, was Anderson East’s successful effort to produce his great new album Flowers of the Broken Hearted.)

More about the project, from PledgeMusic:

Life comes in seasons. The time has come for me to get back into the studio again. Over the past three years, I have written around 40 songs, and in the coming months, I plan to choose 13 to record for my first “real” full-length release. Since 2009, when I released “the Clay, the Seed, the Stone” I’ve been in many places geographically, vocationally, financially, and emotionally. I’ve been able to document my journeys, joys, and hardships through my music and I’m excited to begin work on a solid full-length record with the help of some very talented musicians and producers.

And here’s Brewer talking about it:

I took some photos of Besides Daniel at two Savannah gigs in May — one at The Sentient Bean and one at Taco Abajo. A few pics:
