"…I like to pride myself on seeking out and sharing great songwriters with the world. Every now and then I run across an individual who really blows me away with their gift. Someone who can capture us all up in song and take us to places of escape, take us back, take us to forgotten times, take us to the mirror, and ultimately to a better place. Danny Potter is one of those treasured few who dares to give us back our lives through melody and word. A masterful song crafter of the highest order with an incredible sense of where we've come from, who we are, and where we can go on our journey of life."

"…Danny Potter's latest CD, 'Self-Made Man' is a top-notch look at the man behind his music! But, don't be surprised to look deep inside the music and see yourself staring back with wonder!"

  Danny Potter, Self-Made Man (Dogwood Records)
There has been a delightful trend in the Nashville music community lately for songwriters to record their own songs the way they wrote them to sound. This CD is one of the best recent examples of this. Potter has kicked around Nashville for some years now and has blossomed into a top-notch writer, singer and versatile instrumentalist. You will hear nothing on this CD that smacks of crossover or rock and roll cloaked in twang. This is top-shelf traditional sounding music wrapped around Potter's smoky vocals. This CD is absolute proof that you don't have to stray from country/bluegrass roots to be refreshing. All you have to do is write some fine songs and sing them like you mean them…. Get this CD; you won't regret it.
