"Songs to Wake Up To" - New Album out now!

Seven years of enjoying these original instrumentals led me to want to re-produce them in digital format, and here they are, "Songs to Wake Up To" presents 9 acoustic instrumentals, 5 unplugged versions of some of my favorite original modern rock songs, and 8 brand new songs from 2017. This collection is my most varied assortment of studio recordings, singer-songwriter influences, and acoustic reflections that I have ever produced.

From Bethany Marsh: Danny Hauger's range from subtle acoustic instrumentals used in film soundtracks, to reflective ballads, to pop rock melodic jangle heard live around Orange and Los Angeles Counties.

Hauger's style is a modern mix of modern, alternative, acoustic, and instrumental genres influenced by bands like the Gin Blossoms, Oasis, Guster, Ryan Adams, and Toad the Wet Sprocket. Hauger has played venues from the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz around the state to Stockton, Orange, Los Angeles, and Rosarito, Mexico.

Hauger's acoustic led intuition for blending alternative and modern rock resonates with an energetic collection of reflection and thoughtfulness that makes for a unique one man show.
Danny Hauger is an independent singer/songwriter that has recorded and toured California from Stockton to Fullerton since 2000 playing a modern mix of alternative, acoustic, and instrumental genres self-produced by the artist.
