Daniel Kimbro

Raised on American Roots music in East Tennessee, Daniel Kimbro is a multi GRAMMY-nominated musician with more than 20 years of experience performing, recording, and writing Roots music. As an accompanist Daniel has shared stages and studios with notable artists including Eric Clapton, Jerry Douglas, John Hiatt, The Transatlantic Sessions, Sarah Jarosz, and myriad others.

While his recording credits are numerous, it is his new solo album Carpet in The Kitchen that best epitomizes Daniel’s experience as a writer and arranger. This debut collection features stories set to lyrics and chords that evoke Appalachian murder ballads and story-songs rooted in the folk traditions of Scotland, Ireland and England. The opening track ‘Loyston’ remembers the upheaval brought by the displacement of his fellow Appalachians with the construction of the TVA dams, focusing on the inundation of the eponymous town in Northeast Tennessee. Guest appearances on Carpet in The Kitchen include Jerry Douglas on slide guitars, Mike Baggetta (Nels Kline, David Wax Museum) on electric guitar, and Jordan Perlson (Gary Burton, Becca Stevens, Snarky Puppy) on Drumset.

Known to listeners across the US, UK and Canada for his work with the folk-blues trio Harley Kimbro Lewis, Daniel continues to tour these regions with Sarah Jarosz, The Jerry Douglas Band, the Earls of Leicester and others. When time allows, Daniel can be found on bodies of water of any size with a fly rod in hand, and he is active in promoting and supporting the Conservation of these watersheds and their colorful constituents.
