The Dreamer. The Drifter.

Daniel Kalicki - AKA - DownRiver Dan:

Blues Rock Guitarist, Singer, Songwriter

It all started in 2004. My life, and many others were changed forever. The loss of my best friend, and source of inspiration, my mother. Heartbroken and lost, I found shelter in music.

Having an ear for the classic rock and blues records in my Dad's collection, it was a natural direction for me to go. I began playing guitar, later singing and eventually writing songs. In 2014 at age 21 I kick started a full-time career in music by releasing my debut original album, 'Without You.' Consisting of 10 original songs, the album has received widespread acclaim and received airplay around the world. In November 2019 I released my second album 'Here To This' and have again received incredible response. I've made music on some of the biggest stages around Michigan and have toured the US playing a few thousand 'gigs' along the way.

Along with music, I'm an outdoor fanatic and I love to travel!
