My KUTX // January 9, 2021

Daniel Sahad, singer for breakout Austin soul-rockers Nané, has a keen ear for detail. For his guest DJ set, Sahad shares an hour of his singing inspirations, and it’s obvious he’s a student of music. He draws from a wide range of singers: Brittany Howard’s tender growl; James Blakes’ tone and timbre; the pain in Son Little’s voice; the expressive joy in Vagabon’s. Hear Nané’s My KUTX on Saturday, January 9 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime in the player above.
