Acclaimed Philly rock vocalist Danny Beissel, who has spent the past decade performing with such musical stalwarts as Jeffrey “Skunk” Baxter (Steely Dan, Doobie Brothers), Barry Goudreau (Formerly of Boston), James Burton (Elvis, Ricky Nelson) and more, is headed back to his roots for the Philadelphia release of his debut album Featherbornat the Centre Theater in Norristown, PA Saturday, February 23


The first record from his new project Featherborn, the CD is described by Beissel as a “the culmination of [his] musical voyage” after fronting such super-star bands as The American Vinyl All Star Band (featuring members of Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, formerly of BostonThe Wailers and Fosterchild (with members of Candlebox, Tantric, and FUEL). It was recorded at the iconic Blackbird Studio in Nashville, TN with esteemed engineer John McBride(Martina McBride, Stevie Nicks, Garth Brooks) and features Charlie Colin, former founding member of the Grammy Award Winning Rock Band Train, on guitar/bass and vocals and Scott Underwood (also former founding member of Train) performing double duty as drummer and producer. 


However, what makes Featherborn truly an all-star project is the first-class special guest appearances by friends and former band mates including BaxterBrian Quinn, lead guitarist of multi-platinum rock band Candlebox and many more. 


“This album is extremely personal to me as these are the songs I've been waiting to record and the players I've been waiting to record with, said Beissel. “I can’t wait to finally come back home to share my album with my friends and family.” 


Joining Beissel on stage for the Centre Theater performance is Candlebox’s Quinn as well as Philadelphia musicians John McNutt (Guitar), Mike Czimback (Drums), Mike Vlaanderen (Bass) and Doug Depta (Keys).
