The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of?

Daniel Mustard has had quite a year. From homelessness on the streets of New York, to singing Creep on Opie and Anthony's homeless shopping spree, to getting sober, to getting a record contract. Is this the American dream?

Previously.

This is such awesome news. I was wondering what had happened to him. Thanks, Xurando.

Well done to Daniel! This man brought a lot of good times to our household. Great he got the opportunity to clean up his act and TOOK it

Love his voice (and missed his earlier post). I checked iTunes and yep, his EP is available there, if you'd like to support him (though God knows how much of a cut he gets -- still, something is better than nothing.)

Wow, fantastic voice and delivery.

Remember when he performed this on O&A. Great voice. Hope he keeps clean and goes on to greater things. Well deserved.

I'd like to see Daniel Higgs on Opie and Anthony.

My impression is that he'll get a bigger cut if you buy the EP through Bandcamp. Plus, you can name your own price (over $5.00), so if you want to toss him a little extra, you can.

He reminds me of Roky Erickson. Maybe it's the beard.

Thanks, palmcorder_yajna. I'll pick it up there.

I heard his song Impulse to My Addiction in Bandcamp, and enjoyed it so much that I sprung for the entire EP via iTunes.

His cover of Creep is superb, however, particularly in how he plays with phrasing and loses the bridge (which his voice likely wouldn't be suited for, anyway).
