Charlie Danielsâ€™ first new album project release since 2007 is the musical legends dedication to his own person icon â€“ Bob Dylan. Daniels added his guitar to three of Dylanâ€™s Nashville produced projects (NASHVILLE SKYLINE, SELF PORTRAIT and NEW MORNING) in the 60s. Charlie has explained that the Dylan sessions not only did a lot for his confidence, but helped legitimise him in Nashville circles and beyond as a serious musician. He certainly repays the debt of gratitude on this new project. â€œIt was about 50 years ago when I first became aware of Bob Dylanâ€”and no, I was not naive enough to think I could swim in the same stream, try to emulate what he had done, or cop his licks. Nobody could do that,â€ comments Daniels. â€œMy ambitions were to provoke some thought, to colour the imagery of my songs, to think outside the box of conformityâ€”in other words to be myself.â€ The new collection contains Danielsâ€™ signature deft musical delivery on ten of Dylanâ€™s finest writings: Tangled Up In Blue Times They Are a Changinâ€™ Iâ€™ll Be Your Baby Tonight Gotta Serve Somebody I Shall Be Released Country Pie Mr. Tambourine Man Hard Rains A Gonna Fall Just Like A Woman Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn) â€œWhatever it was Bob Dylan meant by his lyrics, they grabbed the attention of the world and changed the face of music forever,â€ continues Charlie. â€œHe inspired musicians to knock down the restrictive, bubble gum, three minute a side, Tin Pan Alley world that set the parameters of popular music and turn their creative minds loose in a thousand new directions.â€ OFF THE GRID will be released on Blue Hat Records in association with MRI and distributed by RED. It is set for release on April 1, 2014.
