Daniel Moses Botkin to debut solo album at the Pearl

October 23, 2018
As the front man for hometown favorite Runaway Symphony, singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Moses Botkin has stepped out on his own for his spectacular debut solo album, "Shadows on the Earth." He chose only his favorite venues including his hometown Pearl theater, to introduce his new music, and he'll take the stage at the Pearl at 7 p.m. Saturday, October 27.

And that's only the first chance to see him here at home this fall, as he'll be back with Runaway Symphony for a show, also at the Pearl, on Friday, November 16.

Daniel Moses Botkin is a singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist from Bonners Ferry, now living and making music in Moscow. His most recent album, "Shadows on the Earth," is a stripped-down study in sifting through the darkness and disappointment of loss, and finding the fragments of light. Simple production and intricate guitar work support a record described as “A beautiful introspection into love, heartache, and hope that reignites a longing for better days, forgiveness and laughter.”

Accompanying Daniel on the stage will be Jason Oliveira, keyboards and vocals, Matthew Hyndman, guitar, Heather Hyndman, violin, and Laura Botkin, vocals.

After moving from the wilderness outside of Bonners Ferry to Moscow, Botkin started writing and performing music in his teens. He later joined the indie/folk/rock outfit Runaway Symphony, and has written and recorded two full-length LPs and a handful of EPs with the band. Their music has garnered a regional following, and is featured in the Warner Brothers motion picture, Father Figures, starring Owen Wilson, Ed Helms, and Glenn Close.

Daniel Moses Botkin takes the stage at 7 p.m., doors and the Pearl Cafe, 7160 Ash Street, Bonners Ferry, open at 6 p.m.
