The band and I rock out at Rockwood Music Hall on Saturday September 14 at 6pm! This is a big step for us, as Rockwood is kind of a gateway or stepping stone for local talent. We would really love to see you there.
More on this later, but we have some recording sessions scheduled in late September! I have been sitting on too many songs and its time to get them out to the people.
Hope you can make it to the show! You can always join the mailing list on the email list page of the website or by emailing ds@dannyseverance!

Busy week! I play tonight at the Shrine (shrinenyc.com) and this Friday at the Roots Cafe in South Slope, Brooklyn. All details are at dannyseverance.com/shows!
Tonight’s show will feature Supah Awsum from the Street Poets NYC Artistry Collective and rapper Amanda Monroe.
I’m also accompanying Kayla Starr on Violin on 3/30 at ZirZamin and her following 2/2 and 2/6 NY shows.
Gentlemen and Ladies,
happy 2013! i hope this year is a wonderful step forward for you and yours. this year, i’m looking forward to:
1. recording. a lot. i’ll keep you posted (twitter.com/dannyseverance). there’s a teaser track on my new Soundcloud page
2. more shows in NYC and across the country. we’re already looking forward to a joint show at the Shrine in Harlem with Samia on March 26.
3. The Maven Imprint! in 2012 I founded arts and entertainment collaborative the Maven Imprint with Matt Gorkis. our mission? to help unrecognized artists. myself and Paul Nassar just threw an event in Brooklyn this past December. we are doing big things in 2013: an LA event, a new line of custom apparel, and much more. like the Maven Imprint on Facebook to stay in the loop. personally, i’m looking forward to bringing some new bands on board with Maven Records.
4. work on poetry. i have a lot of ideas i’ve been sitting on and i desperately need to finish some poems. i’m always throwing ideas out there on Twitter and will be posting more poems to my website.
I have been super busy putting together an artistic experience like no other – its called Crossroads and will take place Friday 12/14 at Greenpoint Gallery in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. We’ll feature several live music acts (including me!), about a dozen artists displaying work alongside a collaborative all-night live art piece over 30 ft long done by at least 8 live painters.
Check out the facebook event here:
Crossroads will be the first event in NYC from the Maven Imprint. My New York Maven partner in crime, Paul Nassar (Artistic Director), will be curating the show with me and of course will paint with Team Nassart, featuring Paul, Ralph Serrano, and many more. If you don’t know already, Team Nassart has been building a huge presence around the city this past year at spots such as WIP (Work in Progress) and the White Rabbit.
This Saturday myself and Paulie Nassar (nassart.com) will be holding it down at the “Clashing Arts” event at RBar Brooklyn, 451 Meeker Ave. Art starts at 7pm and I kick of the poetry at 9pm. I’ll be reading selections from my chapbook Reductions (dannyseverance.com/poetry). We would love to have your support!
