Daniel Knox narrates compositions with a perverse and sometimes comical wit, guiding the listener through sprawling worlds that exist just out of frame. His work has inspired a diverse cast of collaborators that lie inside and outside his realm of alternative Americana, such as Jarvis Cocker, Rufus Wainwright, Thor Harris (Swans, Freakwater), and The Handsome Family, with recent performances that include the likes of Andrew Bird and Swans. 

On his most recent release Chasescene, Knox leads the listener through intimate vignettes both tragic and comic in their exploration of love and the grief that follows. With vocalists Jarvis Cocker and Nina Nastasia, Chasescene is a thick compendium of heartbreak and desolation, featuring plenty of encounters with the villains that haunt the pages.
