WELCOME HOME! Thank you for visiting.  I am a touring balladeer and songwriter based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  My music is published, recorded and released under the business name Perfectly Stable Music, a derivation from the title track of my first CD, released in 1999 -- with the exception of my newest albums SLEEPING DOGS and THESE HOUSES released in 2013 and 2016 on the prestigious Berkalin Records label. 

On this site you'll find information on my songs, recordings, videos, show schedules, photo gallery, music activities, links to other music sites, and more. On each page there are linked titles for every other page, so you can move around from page to page within the site pretty easily. You can buy my CDs by credit card on this site, or you can call, email or write. The Tour Dates page lists my performances as well as concerts we occasionally host for other artists when they come through Albuquerque.  

If you'd like me to update you periodically, please add your email address to my mailing list and I'll keep you posted on new recordings, shows and other developments (but not TOO often!). Thank you for your support! --all the best,



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!



Daniel uses exclusively Shubb capos. Please check out these folks' excellent products at
