Kerrville New Folk Winner!   






Thank you for visiting.  I am a touring balladeer and songwriter based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  My music is published under the business name Perfectly Stable Music, a derivation from the title track of my first CD, released in 1999. I released my first five albums on Perfectly Stable Music and then was invited to join the excellent and prestigious Berkalin Records songwriter label for my newest albums: 
Sleeping Dogs in 2013;
These Houses in 2016;
LIVE at the Kitchen Sink in 2018;
and New Old Friends in 2023.

You can buy my CDs by credit card on this site, or you can call, email or write. The Tour Dates page lists my solo performances as well as concerts I perform as a member of The Limeliters.

Daniel is also the newest member of the iconic folk trio
The Limeliters! 

Yes, the group is still alive and well and touring 60 years after they began. Different artists these days as six decades have taken their toll, but the tight harmonies, stirring folk songs, humor, energy and fun continue with Andy Corwin, Steve Brooks and Daniel Boling. Please visit for updates and concert schedules and we'll look forward to seeing you somewhere soon. And pick up your copy of our new album The Cutting Edge of Passé!
