Worship leader and Christ-follower first. Chart-topping Christian recording artist second. The Daniel Doss Band never sought anything other than opportunities to engage people at the spiritual level, and evoke God-sized encounters through worship. If unselfish hearts are truly rewarded, this might explain the unprecedented success The Daniel Doss Band has experienced these past years. Singles including “God In Me” and “Hold On” propelled them into a whirlwind of radio and touring success. Recently signed to Nashville based Mission House Music Label Group and "Mission House Records," the Daniel Doss Band is gearing up for a monumental second album release, “Beyond My Reach, featuring their first radio release in three years, “My Deliverer.”
Mark Hall of Casting Crowns says, “I have spent a lot of time with these guys and they are the real deal. Daniel’s writing is sincere, honest, and speaks clearly about God’s love and hope in Christ. Their music will impact anyone who hears it.” These sentiments are expounded upon by Christian music mega-producer Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, tobyMac) who says, “Working with Daniel was a true joy - he has a phenomenal voice and a true heart for worshiping God. He really understands the importance of writing songs that usher God’s people into His presence.
The Daniel Doss Band has always been deeply grounded in the church. It is that grounding that has shaken things up a bit in the past year. About five years ago Daniel was a part of a church plant in Clarksville, TN called Grace Community Church. In the first four years while he and his wife were there it grew to well over 1200 in attendance and it continues to grow each week. In the spring of 2009 God began stirring in Daniel's heart to do it all over again with childhood friend Ben Lamb in Valparaiso, Indiana. It is a growing town about an hour southeast of Chicago. The new church is called Grace Point and Daniel is co-pastoring alongside Ben; Daniel focusing on music worship and Ben focusing on teaching. Meanwhile Bryan, bass player, and his wife have answered the call to help plant a church in Belgium. They are beginning the training process now and are planning to launch this new work in the spring of 2011. Kenny Davis, drummer, is a Texas native and graduated from Belmont University in Nashville in May of this year and has begun doing some production work as well as playing out with Paul Baloche who is the worship leader at his home church in Texas. His role with DDB is expanding to that of road manager as well as drummer. Will McKelvey, guitar, has been with Daniel for several years and actually played on their last indie record "Love Like Rain" recorded in 2005 and appeared on “Greater Than Us All” on the song “Light is Shining.” Will's exceptional ability was recognized as a teenager by world-renown guitarist Phil Keagy who continues to be a musical mentor to Will. These guys are excited about this new record “Beyond My Reach” It is a step forward musically and lyrically giving voice to the church and comfort to the brokenhearted. Look for Daniel Doss Bands' "Beyond my Reach" to release early this fall 2010. For more information about Daniel Doss Band, their music and ministry please visit www.danieldossband.com.
