User profile: Black Lung Serenade (aka Danny Vasquez)


"Sad and beautiful, melancholy yet uplifting", these are just a few words to describe the music created by Black Lung Serenade.

Black Lung Serenade's (aka Danny Vasquez) vocal delivery, at times, is reminiscent of the great Gram Parsons. However, his voice is all his own. Much like Ryan Adams, Elliott Smith and Jason Falkner, his insightful lyrics explore the deeper aspects of love, life and meaning. And his music is a poetic combination of country, folk rock and the sonic experimentation of ground breaking artists like Sonic Youth and Wilco.

Either playing with a band or performing solo Danny's live shows are introspective and compelling. Hear him play, see him live and join the many others who agree, Black Lung Serenade is one of indie music's best kept secrets who will soon be widely known.
