Daniel Markham, One of DFW's Best Songwriters, Has Found a Way to Pay His Bills with Music, For Now

Daniel Markham, with his shoulder length, straight brown hair and soft-spoken demeanor, is one of those rare breeds of cat who is both incredibly talented at his chosen craft of songwriting and sharply handsome, and were I a little farther toward the middle on the Kinsey scale, I'm sure I'd have a swooning crush on the guy.

He's been in the Denton music scene for a couple of years now, and two months ago in June, he released his fourth album independently, entitled Daniel Markham Ruined My Life. It's a fantastic rock album that steams and boils with the percussive disdain of Lou Barlow and the pristine musical poignancy of the indie mid '90s.
