Ithaca – Danny Baxley



From Texas to Boston, this one-man band is making his way in the music industry with his unique genre-blended songs. Danny Baxley has independently released a single called Ithaca.

“…everything on my EP or anything I’ve done since November is all me.”Danny Baxley

The song starts with a rhythmic guitar, echoing the artist’s rock band background. As the vocals come in so does the synth and electronic instruments, which took me by surprise somewhat. With instruments that remind me of Owl City’s Fireflies song, Baxley’s intriguing hybrid of genres is certainly a twist on fundamental electronica and rock.

“I’ve always attempted to blend genres – sometimes [they’re successful]…”

Baxley’s vocals are blunt and occasionally stray from the desired melody, yet they seem to ground the song rather than allow the listener to lose themselves in the electronic tones.

Certainly an interesting and unique sound that might very well make a permanent home for itself in the indie corner of the music industry.
