My name is Daniel Smith and the Singing Mechanic’s piano songs are a tricky hat of elements. His songs are a party call for sing-along-ing and foot stomping and as they circle around beautiful instrumentals you may wonder “didn’t my grandma play that one?” There are dramatic stage elements where off-off-off-Broadway is just gonna have to come knockin’, and all the while these sweet songs keep me in a place of wonder…
I wonder HOW??? and I keep wondering WHO??? but I never seem to wonder why.
