Song Premiere: Dan Charness, “Insomnia”

With the release of his latest collection, Not for Love (EP), award-winning acoustic songwriter Dan Charness emerges as one of New York City’s most promising singer-songwriters. The EP features six original songs and showcases Charness’s McCartney-esque versatility as both a songwriter and performer. He moves effortlessly from soothing folk to driving rock–all within the confines of the American songwriting tradition. As Charness insists, “I refuse to be confined to one style or genre. I grew up listening to a wide range of music, so the variety of styles in Not for Love is really just an honest expression of that range of influences.” Despite its stylistic breadth, Not for Love is unified by the consistently brilliant craftsmanship of Charness’s songs.

The EP, including it’s single, “Insomnia,” was brought to life with prodigious skill by New York City producer Dominic Fallacaro.

Not for Love will be released on April 15th with a live performance that night at Rockwood Music Hall.
