Daniel's songs are paired alongside works by J.S. Bach, Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, and Charleton Singleton, as well as newly composed transitions between the pieces by members of Unconducted, offering fans of all music a fresh way to listen to each style.

About the curator:
Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Fears is obsessed with evolving – finding new ways to express emotion and feeling. Fears grew up appreciating different musical worlds: the Christian and Gospel music of his family; the R&B, soul, and hip hop his friends introduced to him; and the classical music he studied at The University of Texas and Yale University.
This diverse musical upbringing brought about a desire to collaborate with a wide variety of instrumentalists, artists, and creatives. In the last 2 years he's collaborated and/or partnered with KUTX, KMFA, Austin Classical Guitar, and the American Music Abroad program.
