Addi McDaniel

"Are You Serious"


Sylvan Songs is proud to bring you Addi McDaniel's new single "Are You Serious" from her captivating solo debut album, AFTER THE NEWS, (available everywhere January 25)!


On AFTER THE NEWS, Addi McDaniel points her search inwards, channeling the pain of loss and regret into a transformative work of beauty and strength. Hailed as "a dynamo with a brass-plated voice" by the LA Times, McDaniel is both an extraordinary singer and a gifted interpreter of song, and AFTER THE NEWS finds her breathing vivid life into a raft of original songs from collaborator Tom Siering, whose material she deftly pairs with covers of tracks by Andrew Bird and Bruce Cockburn. Backed by an all-star cast of musicians including drummer/producer Marco Giovino (Robert Plant, Norah Jones), McDaniel blurs the lines between roots, blues, soul, and jazz.


Addi revels in the semantic backflips of Andrew Bird’s “Are You Serious” as it toys with the inadequacy of language in the face of our deepest emotions. "'It's one of my all-time favorite Andrew Bird songs", says McDaniel. “When I first heard it, I couldn’t get it out of my head for weeks. There is something about this song that I find so endearing and playfully perfect! It just pulls you right in."
