Daniel Knox prophecies calamity and doom on piano and kazoo. A Chicago musician and songwriter with the voice of a 1920s troubadour, Knox composes tragicomic ballads reminiscent of Will Oldham or Tom Waits. Listen to Evryman for Himself
, the harrowing Ghostsong
, the poignant You Win Some, You Tie Some
, and Disaster
Knox was introduced by David Lynch at a premiere of Inland Empire
, where he improvised a short organ piece
. He is currently working on "a longform piece of music written and arranged for piano, voice, horns, strings, and percussion based on the photography of John Atwood," during a residency
at The Watermill Centre.
