When Daniel Snow sets out to record he starts out by clearing the dinner table first, not because his mom raised him that way but because that’s where he makes his home studio. Daniel Snow is in many ways the epitome of the modern musician. He records at home in a room that lacks five-figure acoustic installations and six-figure consoles. In fact, he has little else than a collection of instruments to play, BalanceĀ and Reason. Yet Daniel’s music sounds fantastic. He has passion, character, talent, and everything else you can’t buy off the shelf.

We visited Daniel Snow in Albuquerque, New Mexico while he was recording a track on his upcoming album to see his process first hand. The song he put together that afternoon is stunning, sounds great, and is a testament to how much you can achieve at home when quality tools meet great ideas.
