Atlanta based musician Danny Brewer, musically known as Besides Daniel, uses poetic lyricism, emotive lyricism and catharsis in his music. Besides Daniel pulls from his own life lessons and experiences to write his songs, and his previous release, The Marvelous Grief, was featured on NPR, Starbucks and NBC’s Heartbeat. His new album, TEEMING, will release on Aug. 24, 2018, and a recent press release states that “this collection of songs humbly puts into perspective the weight of life lessons, true friendship, the risks of marriage and the triumph of a heart that has healed.” TEEMING was self-produced and recorded by Matt Pethel of Grey Echo Productions just outside of Atlanta.
Besides Daniel exclusively teamed up with us to premiere his new single “Long Shot,” which can be streamed below:
When asked to describe “Long Shot,” Brewer shares with Talent In Borders that the song “recounts the season of restlessness and adventure that I experienced when I traveled by bicycle over 3000 miles-living on the bike and sleeping in a hammock for almost 3 months.”
He continues explaining that “the refrain of “I am your long shot, You are my sure win” refers to coming to terms with the risks in choosing to love. “I was a risky bet, but she took a long shot”. You can hear the experiences in the lyrics.”
