Dear Americana Music Association,

Here at Cyber PR, we recognize your enthusiasm for Americana music and we understand the goal of the website is to spread American Roots music around the world. That is why we believe Chris Daniels and the Kings would fit into your collection of talented and authentic Americana musicians as perfectly as the last piece to a puzzle. Chris Daniels and the Kings can be described as the sound of Colorado. Chris Daniels, the band leader, is a successful songwriter, a talented guitarist, and a singer with a smooth, but edgy, voice. His catchy songs have been heard around the world. His voice has drifted out of our television speakers when some of his songs appeared in American commercials for companies such as McDonalds and Ford. Those same songs have been heard in other countries, such as Holland where he performed for the Queen. Since 1991, Chris Daniels and the Kings have spread the sound of Colorado around two continents. Daniels has been compared to artists such as Richard Thompson and Sam Bush, as well as the great James Taylor. He is responsible for writing well recognized regional songs such as South Carolina, Better Days, and Wildcat. Daniels is known for his sense of humor and diversity in songwriting and that can be seen in his song titled Medical Marijuana; a song about Colorados most recent legalized herb.But Daniels doesnt simply write a song about marijuana because it has become a large part of Colorados culture. He wrote the song because, to him, marijuana served as a medicine. In 2010, he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Fortunately for Daniels, he was able to get a bone marrow transplant via stem cells from his sister, dubbing him a new breed of family man. Daniels has not let cancer stop him from his music and still leads Chris Daniels and the Kings. In 2012, the band was nominated to be inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame. They have earned the opportunity to appear alongside outstanding musicians such as B.B. King, Sheryl Crow, Uncle Cracker, and Ziggy Marley. Chris Daniels and the Kings are the sound of Colorado and a perfect fit for the Americana Music Association.

Thank you for your time and consideration,John Semones
