Rock On! This Week's Sound Bites...12/19/19

By Danny Coleman

originally published: 12/19/2019

"That's the power of music; some people put their foot in the water and they get out but the stage is a jealous mistress and it wants all of you or none of you. When you choose that, there's a lot of things that you give up in life; you could do both, it's all doable it's just that it is a struggle and you do get those glorious moments and I find it worth it. Choices, you've got to choose, to me life is risk; one week you're struggling and then the next you're doing great."

Danny Beissel has made his name by paying dues as well as performing with some of rock music's best known accompanists. Jeffrey "Skunk" Baxter (Doobie Brothers/Steely Dan), Barry Goudreau (formerly of Boston) and James Burton (Elvis/Ricky Nelson) have all shared stages with this Philadelphia front man who has kept the trend going with the recording of his latest album at Nashville's Blackbird Studios; once again with some industry heavyweights.

 Featherborn is Beissel's latest project and December 6 saw the release of its first single and video for the upbeat, "Blush." So how did this all come together and how did he entice members of Train and The Wallflowers to come on board?

"Well I knew Charlie Colin; I met him at a gig in Anaheim with another band that I played with called American Vinyl All-Star Bandll-," he explained. "He and I hit it off so we started hanging together and writing together and a friend of his named John Elliot sent us to Blackbird Studios in Nashville where Charlie's old drummer Scott Underwood who was the drummer in Train had started to get into production; so he's actually the producer of the song "Blush" and the rest of the album. So it was us three basically doing pre-production on these songs that I had laying around for a couple of years and we decided to bring them to life. So we hired a couple of cats that were in Nashville, one of them being Jimmy Wallace an amazing keyboard player and just an amazing person who I believe still plays with The Wallflowers and Guthrie Trapp who is a Nashville guitarist and basically that's how it all started; we ended up at Blackbird Studios and that's where the magic happened. I am so grateful to have those guys on the album, I feel really blessed; I was over the moon about it."

"Blush" is a well done back to basics sort of tune with an attention grabbing rhythm that is beautiful in its simplicity. The corresponding video is a trip down memory lane for Beissel which, like the song, also holds our attention and leaves one wondering; will they or won't they find each other.

Danny elaborated on his writing style, the video and the reasoning behind it all.

"Most of my writing is something in my life personal; either someone and I mix it with imagination and that was basically about a past love which was interesting because it was about a horrible time in my life. Going through that situation with that girl and then having to write something completely opposite and beautiful like love. So that's how that ended up happening which is very interesting because you never know how it's going to come out; do you know what I mean? It's got the 50's nostalgic vibe to it which I really love, it's like a cool little love song."

"That's where I started, the streets of Philadelphia; basically on South Street and a couple of neighborhood places like Bridgeport and Conshohocken," he said, referencing the chosen shoot location for the video. "So it was kind of cool for me to reminisce and get a nostalgic vibe of that; walking down South Street to the end of it which was pretty cool. I used to play at Dobbs on Monday nights and after our gig; do you know Lorenzo's across the street? The owner Lorenzo himself used to walk in with a pizza at the end of the night; it was great. Can you imagine that? As a musician you're broke and that famous pizza comes walking across the street, it was great; for a musician that was like breakfast, lunch and dinner, I was very grateful(laughs)."

Beissel says that he too faces the dilemma which plagues all artists in the current music climate; how does one release the music to the public?

"In this day and age you really don't know what to do; do you drop the album? Do you drop a single? So we went with the decision to drop the single "Blush" along with the video and we're going to see what happens with that; hopefully it goes good and we drop the next one."

When your career has been filled with ups and downs; is it difficult to keep the passion alive and the fire burning inside? Beissel says that the fire for him is always there but such is the life of an entertainer. He understands the common misconceptions yet knows that the trials and tribulations of the business are what makes the eventual victories no matter how big or small worth the effort.

"I mean sometimes it's easy and I'm really grateful that I am still doing music for as long as I have and the fire is still there absolutely 100 percent but it's a little different from when I first started. That fire, that unknown of where it's going and I think you have that forever really; it just becomes bigger stages and different places. Before, I just wanted to really play on South Street and I was so pumped and I finally did that and then I was at Dobbs and then Pontiac Grill and all of a sudden you're like; OK what's next? So I think for me the fire just keeps growing and I find it through writing music; imagination is the most powerful tool that I use as a writer. People look at it from the outside and it looks like; oh my God I wish I had your life but they don't see the inside of it and it's hard. I mean when it's great it's great but it's a struggle; they don't know those nights where you're struggling to make a buck and you're playing and playing where sometimes there's three people in the room and others there's 300 in the room. I never called being a musician "Work" I didn't like that term but it's work. They think you're being wined and dined and they don't see that the guy across the street was nice enough to bring a pizza (laughs) but it's a beautiful life and I wouldn't change anything. To me it's like that struggle is part of the journey and it keeps it like when you overcome something; talking with you right now, this is my first interview about the national release of "Blush" and this is the payoff. There's struggles and there's payoffs and I think that is the journey and I think that the payoffs are so much brighter because of the struggle. I think the ultimate goal is the unattainable goal, we've got to keep striving towards it because what happens if you end up somewhere and it's like oh my God I made it, this is it; OK now what? People look at my life and think I'm flying around playing rock 'n' roll with these really great people and there's a part of me that thinks, well look, you have this really stable life with kids and a family and that looks great too but it is what it is and I wouldn't change it for the world."

Part of the struggle is planning promotion and marketing of your product. Beissel says that he's going to see where the music has traction and work within those parameters and beyond; "We'll see where it's buzzing and it looks like I'll plan a tour around that in early 2020."
