“70’s singer songwriter perfection” - Americana UK
Daniel Hertzov was born in Moscow when Brezhnev was king and emigrated to the USA in 1977 as a 2 year jewish refugee. He found the beatles as a kid, ditched classical piano, stole his older sister’s plywood guitar and never looked back. In his late teens and twenties, he played guitar mandolin and double bass as a sideman supporting singer songwriters and on one memorable recurring gig in a 25 piece university big band. In his 30’s after meeting songwriter Darrell Scott, he put his love of music and writing together and started writing songs. Since then, Daniel's worked his songs with Darrell Scott, Boo Hewerdine, Mark Freegard and Tymon Tymanski.
At 26 Daniel moved to the UK and at 42 he moved again to Poland. With 2 passports and 3 languages Daniel does his best to feel at home & connect with people wherever he goes. Songs are the secret 4th language. Whether playing solo, or with his crew, the songs come from the heart and hopefully, after wandering about, find a home.
The latest set of songs... released during the summer of 2017 are collected in "Looking Glass".
