A lone Daniel Rossen has never hit the stage solo before, but we have high hopes for his upcoming U.S. tour, kicking off on March 22nd in Seattle, WA. The frontman for both Grizzly Bear and Department of Eagles, Rossen’s strong yet relaxed tenor and masterful guitar technique bring to mind aspects of Nick Drake and Joanna Newsom. With a rich catalogue of crowd-pleasers and B-sides to draw from, he should evoke similarly awestruck reactions. Aside from material from his two main projects, Rossen also has his fantastic Silent Hour/Golden Mile EP, released late in 2012. This original material holds a number of intuitive stories perfect for an intimate setting, ranging from band feuds to relationship experiences. Here’s our wish list of tracks that could grace his set list when he hits the road.
