Daryl Wayne Dasher is a Tennessee based singer/songwriter who brings a fresh and organic approach to Country and Folk Music. His lyrics often revolve around social consciousness, the great outdoors, personal conflict, and love. His enthusiasm for his craft is infectious and his live shows are guaranteed to leave you with a more positive attitude.
In 2020, Dasher was forced to cancel most of his live shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but found a way to keep moving forward during the quarantine. He started playing a livestream show via his Facebook page every week called “Friday Night Quarantunes” and has amassed thousands of views and many new fans because of this. The free-will donations from these shows helped to finance a new studio album, engineered by Zach Kasic at Wild Feather Recordings in Hendersonville, TN with an astounding cast of musicians(mostly recorded remotely as per safety protocols) including Lorenzo Molina Ruiz (The Mavericks), Daniel Seymour (David Olney), Jim Van Cleve (Mountain Home/Doyle Lawson), Nashville A-List session pedal steel player Scotty Sanders, and many more. The album includes four songs co-written via Zoom with Americana/Folk artist Linda McRae, one song written by his life-long friend and music partner Andrew Adkins, a deep cover of a Marty Robbins classic, and two more original songs including the title track, “Honky Tonk Ways”, co-written with Brigitte London. Daryl Wayne Dasher is an artist who sincerely cares about his craft and about the people who listen to it. His passion for music and for humanity sweats out of him during every single performance. In a new world where people have virtually limitless choices of music, art, and entertainment, it is important to find a way to stand out. In a statement from OutlawMagazine.com, music critic Richard Deihn wrote that "Daryl Dasher's unique rolling baritone slides into the listener's soul and takes up residence. A dynamic, commanding and uninhibited performer, Dasher's star power lies in his ability to truly connect"
