Daniel Shearin is a singer, songwriter and producer living in Asheville, NC and a member of the internationally touring band River Whyless. Growing up in a small town near the coast of North Carolina, he moved west to the mountains to work at Echo Mountain Recording, a then new but highly acclaimed studio in Asheville. In addition to his work there as a Grammy-nominated engineer, he now produces music from his own studio, Sleeping Dogs in West Asheville. Between the two, he has worked across many genres with artists such as Band of Horses, Toubab Krewe, The Jonathan Scales Fourchestra, Mipso and more. When working on his own music, he experiments with looped harmonium drones and other textures, instruments and “found sounds” to accompany his singing and finger-style guitar. He has released an eponymous EP of his solo material and several albums with River Whyless.
