Daniel Boling is a songwriter with a storyteller's ear for detail and a balladeer’s turn of phrase. His songs are inhabited by interesting characters drawn from Daniel's life, family and friends: the vagabond running off with a tiny circus to tour the West; an aging Viet Nam veteran looking back with surprise at his departed youth; a young rancher inheriting his grandfather's nearly worn out rangeland and hoping he can hold on and live up to the family legacy; a passenger on Flight 93 calling his wife to say goodbye; and morons with a death wish proving Darwin’s theory of evolution! His finger-picked guitar and banjitar support a good, clear tenor voice that evokes his characters' emotions perfectly.

Daniel has released five independent albums since 1999. His songs have been featured on Rich Warren's "Midnight Special", NPR's "Car Talk", the Dr. Demento Show and on many other folk-format radio programs throughout the U.S., Canada, Austrailia, Europe and Israel. 

Daniel’s 4th CD, He Dreams, was released in 2009 and features 13 new original songs recorded with a sparse, almost live feel and includes cameo appearances by several great friends: Jack Williams, Meredith Wilder, Jimmy Abraham, Jim Schwar, and Suzanne Shelton. Daniel’s newest CD project, “LIVE! from the Winter Folk Festival 2009” also came out in 2009 and showcases his live MainStage set at this outstanding festival. His 3rd CD, The Old International, was released in 2003 and features a supporting cast of dear friends from the road including Bill Ward, T.R. Ritchie, Still on the Hill, Dave Nachmanoff, Susan Clark, Orrin Star and a few more.

Career and family took a good deal of his attention over the years and Daniel fit his music in around the edges of about 60 hours a week as a National Park Ranger and later a Bureau of Land Management Special Agent, but since February, 2008 he’s been performing and touring full-time. Daniel loves any venue where original songwriting is appreciated and folks want to listen to the stories the songs tell.

"... one of the most talented songwriters on the circuit!" 
Kelly & Donna / Still on the Hill

"Daniel's new CD (HE DREAMS) is very fine – great work. The songs are all very strong. I was really struck by ‘King's Coin’, ‘An Awful Lot Like Me’, ‘Earth, Wind, Rain and Fire’, and ‘Katie's Garden’. Daniel's guitar playing is exquisite and his vocals are particularly good."

Americana trio The Boxcar Lilies have quickly made a name for themselves with their standout combination of spine-tingling, innovative harmonies and quality songwriting. Accompanying themselves on guitar, clawhammer banjo, concert ukulele, electric bass, and washboard, they have brought their uniquely warm sound and energetic stage presence to venues across the Northeast and beyond, including The Birchmere Music Hall, Club Passim, and Philadelphia's Tin Angel, and opening for legendary performers like Bill Staines and The Seldom Scene. In 2012, they were selected to perform an official showcase at the International Folk Alliance Conference.

Based in Western Massachusetts, The Boxcar Lilies are Jenny Goodspeed, Stephanie Marshall, and Katie Clarke - three singer-songwriters that met through a local musicians’ cooperative and discovered a shared passion for three-part harmony. They joined forces and in 2011 released their debut CD Heartwood, recorded with producer Dave Chalfant (Erin McKeown, The Nields).

They just released their second studio album Sugar Shack which they recorded with producer Lorne Entress (Lori McKenna, Catie Curtis). The album debuted on the Folk DJ Charts at #2 this May and it was highlighted by both and in their roundup of exciting new releases.
"The Boxcar Lilies] bring energy, improvisation and a charming presence to the stage each night. Anyone with an ear for folk or luscious harmonies will enjoy these women.”
Zak Jason, Cape Cod Times

"When we think of great harmonies in the contemporary roots music world, we think of bands like The Wailin' Jennys or Red Molly. We can now add The Boxcar Lilies to that list."
Sheryl Hunter, The Recorder (Greenfield, MA)
