As host Keefer Fulgham attests in his introduction, the name of Chris Daniels is pretty much synonymous with Colorado music. The Colorado Music Hall of Fame seems to agree, as they inducted Daniels last November for his 30-plus year career as a bandleader and songwriter. His musical history includes playing with New York Dolls frontman David Johansen and Colorado jam band Magic Music, leading The Spoons and Chris Daniels & the Kings, and performing for three presidents.

We had Daniels in our CPR Performance Studio last year prior to his induction. Daniels explored his vast catalogue in a memorable acoustic folk session, and chatted with Keefer about his musical beginnings, advice for young performers, and the effect of his diagnosis with leukemia on his life and music.
