The new CD by singer/songwriter Daniel Derifield has been along time coming! Stand Up has taken nearly 2 years to complete and now the wait is finally over! Growing up in the midwest has given Daniel a much broader sense of music than most musicians. Influences range from Jim Croce to James Taylor as well as much heavier acts such as Pantera and Staind. 'Music has always been a part of my life. Whether going to see live shows of my favorite bands, or hosting a jam session with a few friends after work. I've found that music can be a stress release and an escape. I've always been drawn to music with a message. A song that tells a story, a past, a feeling, a thought. Anyone can write about being depressed. We've all been there! But I wanted to write about being taken out of the hole!' With a powerful title track and a strong track list to follow, Stand Up will tug on your heart strings, make you laugh and also make you stop and think! This one is a must!
