Daniel Bachman is a 23 year old musician born and raised in Fredericksburg, Virginia. He has been playing what he describes as “psychedelic appalachia” since he was a teenager, releasing small run editions of tapes, CDs and LPs for the past three years, with a sound that evolved from drones and banjos to a now guitar centered focus. Touring off and on since the age of 17, Bachman has managed to cover thorough ground across the US, sharing stages with like minded folk such as fellow Fredericksburg native Jack Rose, for whom he fashioned the artwork for the posthumous release of ‘Luck In The Valley’.

On his excellent new album “Jesus I’m a Sinner” (Tompkins Square Records), Bachman’s third LP in two years, he hammers out virtuosic picking in a rich American tradition. Bachman lives in North Carolina now, but the album was recorded in rural Virginia, that setting employed for especially moving effect on the song “Under the Shade of the Trees,” his raw picking accompanied by a droning chorus of cicadas that swarm the mid-Atlantic every 17 years. Hearing Bachman and those bugs, you’re reminded that even if it’s sort of happened before, it’s just as eye-opening when it happens again.
