The son of Barry Tashian, leader of the legendary New England garage rockers Barry & the Remains, multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter Daniel Tashian is a decidedly different type of musician than his cult hero father. His folk-rock-based music recalls that of Michael Penn, Lisa Germano, and Sam Phillips, whose husband T-Bone Burnett produced Tashian's debut album, 1996's Sweetie. Along with his solo career, Nashville resident Tashian produces and plays with various other artists, most notably alt country singer/songwriter Julian Dawson, and hosts a weekly songwriter's night at the famed Nashville music club 12th and Porter. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi
