After growing up cutting his teeth on the classic rock catalog in Guitar Hero and steeping in the Nashville honky-tonk scene, musician Daniel Donato has stepped up as the next big thing in country and bluegrass. Donato also takes profound inspiration from the jam band improv ethos of acts like The Grateful Dead, even referring to his own fans as DD Heads. He is currently on tour supporting his 2023 album, Reflector, under the moniker Cosmic Country, a name meant to encapsulate the sense of truth and soul that the music conveys. Music journalist Neil Ferguson writes for Glide Magazine, “The hallmarks of a Daniel Donato show include a setlist packed with songs, no shortage of tasteful covers, the occasional guest, and plenty of musical peaks that keep the crowd dancing.”
