About "Songs to Wake Up To" by Mitch Meyer of the AC Magazine:
"Local Musician Danny Hauger, a college senior at Cal State Fullerton, has recently begun giving all his music away for free. Stockton born, Fullerton resident, Danny Hauger has been recording and self-producing music since he was a Junior in high school. He has composed music that has been used in commercial production, and has played a few small town gigs in Northern and Southern California.
Hauger produces alternative music, but is has been his instrumental acoustic album, "Songs to Wake Up To", that has generated interest from local press and international music fans. This ten track EP full of soft riffs and layered acoustic guitars is being given away digital via internet downloads, completely for free.
"It's something that didn't seem like a big deal until the downloads started stacking up", said Hauger, "I just wanted to get the music out there for people to enjoy". Hauger sat down with us at AC as he discussed the album of enjoyable relaxation tracks, mostly guitar, and tapped along to "Simplify".
Over one thousand downloads have been counted in the week that "Songs to Wake Up To" has been available. Songs like "Jackson Valley" were inspired by the natural surroundings of Northern California, life decisions, and calming auras of backseat car rides, thoughtful reflections, and gentle acoustic chord progressions.
Hauger hopes that this generosity will take him and his music somewhere, someday. He invites donations after downloads, but says no one takes part in that sector. He hopes that if people pass around hi music enough, a record label may take notice one ay and offer some professional studio time or record deal.
Hauger's podcast is also on itunes, at Danny Hauger Podcasts, and downloads and samples are posted at http://dannyhauger.podbean.com. The album is about 45 MB, and Hauger emails the link for anyone who wants to add his EP to their music collections. He is accepting offers from several area record labels, and still considering new offers." Published by Meyer January 5th, 2009.
