Daniels moved to New York City in 1976 to become an actor, and soon fell in love with Off Broadway playwrights and the writing process — with a guitar in his hands.

With his son’s band, the Ben Daniels Band, he has toured both coasts.

He has shared the stage with Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, Joe Ely, Cheryl Wheeler, Guy Clark, Christine Lavin, Keb Mo’ and Bruce Hornsby.
