Meet Daniel Norgren. The Swedish folk-rock artist has released six albums, mostly recorded on a four-track cassette, with blues-inflected guitar lines and a shop-worn voice that would put him at ease next to classic American songwriters like Bonnie Raitt.
Norgren made his U.S. debut last August at Pickathon. He played an upright piano for this Woods Stage afternoon performance of a previously unreleased song called "People Are Good." That song is included on a new release from Vinyl Me, Please, just announced yesterday. Norgren will tour the U.S. this fall.
This is the latest episode from the Pickathon Woods Series, hand-picked by opbmusic to showcase some of the most exciting performances captured from the three-day Pickathon festival held each summer in Happy Valley, Ore. Look for the next premiere in June.
