Daniel Norgren is a Swedish songwriter from the tall woods of the north. He’s working through the small indie label Superpuma Records and has been doing so since 2006.
The debut album Kerosene Dreams was mainly recorded on home made instruments and was followed up by Outskirt in 2008. This album attracted a steady crowd of blues fans and also opened the doors and roads down south for touring Europe. In 2010 Horrifying Deatheating Bloodspider came out and opened the doors even wider. It was also nominated in the category singer/songwriter album of the year at the Swedish manifest gala. A price which was ripped out of Daniels hands by The Tallest Man On Earth. Horrifying Deathearing Bloodspider was followed up by a suggestive and dronelike six-track EP Black Vultures in the late 2011 including Going Home Finally that was originally tracked for and aired in a BBC-radio show hosted by Mark Lamarr called God’s Jukebox.
On stage Daniel Norgren is usually a duo with himself on the drums/guitar and with his faithful companion Anders Grahn on the upright bass. This setting adds a truly unique sound to Daniel’s stripped down and rural repertoire.
With Andreas Filipsson sometimes by the big black homemade organ you wouldn’t guess they’re only three guys on stage. The band is small but with a truly uncompromising ”heart outside the jumper” energy that would convince any hardboiled grouch.
Daniel Norgren has been playing some of the biggest festivals and venues in Europe since 2009 including Paradiso, Roskildefestival, Rockefeller in Oslo, Peace & Love in Borlänge and so on. In the late fall of 2012 he also joined The Tallest Man On Earth on his sold out European tour where he gained a lot of new fans and attention.
In the early 2013 the new album Buck was released and followed up by a long European tour. The most of the songs on Buck was recorded in Daniel’s home on the 4-chanel cassette porta studio. It also contains studio recordings like ”Whatever Turns You On”. This song was tracked and filmed in the Algorythm Studio and quickly became a hit when it came out on YouTube. The album will also contain a live version of Moonshine Got Me that was originally released on the Black Vultures EP but now re-recorded during a tour in Scandinavia.
