We know that the prize is eternal life, and I'm nearer now to heaven than I've ever been." - Daniel Crabtree Closer Than I've Ever Been is Daniel Crabtree’s latest gospel project. It is his fifth album, consisting of 10 original songs written by Daniel. He has thus far released three singles from the project: "John the Baptist," "Closer Than I’ve Ever Been," and “Would You Be a Soldier,” which charted on the Bluegrass Today Gospel Charts as well as the Roots Music Report. Daniel once again teamed up with award-winning singer/songwriter Donna Ulisse to coproduce Closer Than I've Ever Been. The tracks were recorded and engineered by the multi-talented Scott Vestal at his Digital Underground Recording Studio. A standout group of musicians brought the melodies to life, including Vestal on banjo, Cody Kilby on guitar, Gaven Largent on dobro, Patrick McAvinue and Jason Carter on fiddle, Harry Clark, and Jesse Brock on mandolin, and Evan Winsor and Mike Bub on acoustic bass.  In addition to releasing his own music, Daniel has had his material recorded by famous bluegrass artists such as Larry Sparks and Valerie Smith. Sparks' renditions of "Don't Take Your Eyes Off of Jesus" and "All Over Me" reached No. 1 on the Bluegrass Today chart.  Daniel launched his singer/songwriter career in 2016 with the release of his first album, The Gospel Road. His follow-up projects — 2017's In the Shadow of His Wings, 2019's The Storyteller in Me, and 2021's The Way I See It — have been a mixture of his two passions: gospel and bluegrass music.  Daniel's recent accomplishments include recognition by the Independent Music Awards, which named "Piedmont Train" as the Best Bluegrass Song of 2019, and a nomination by the International Acoustic Music Awards for Best Bluegrass Song ("Sally Sunday").

Daniel Crabtree releases a second featured single, Would You Be A Soldier? from his upcoming album, Closer Than I've Ever Been.  Daniel released a stellar fourth album, The Way I See It, in 2021. Crabtree wrote all 13 tracks and has become one of the celebrated singer/songwriters in today's gospel, roots, and bluegrass music. His songs embrace the human spirit through clever lyrics, for which Daniel's writing is known. The project is a mix of secular and spiritual songs produced by award-winning artist/songwriter/producer Donna Ulisse. The tracks were recorded and engineered by the multi-talented Scott Vestal.  

Daniel's recent accomplishments include recognition by the Independent Music Awards, which named "Piedmont Train" as the "Best Bluegrass Song of 2019," and a nomination by the International Acoustic Music Awards for "Best Bluegrass Song" ("Sally Sunday").   

Famous bluegrass artists Larry Sparks, Valerie Smith, and others have recorded his songs. Recently, the gospel songs recorded by Sparks "Don't Take Your Eyes Off of Jesus" and "All Over Me" have been charted on Bluegrass Today. Daniel's "He'll Change Your Life" charted on the Gospel Bluegrass Today Charts in 2021.  

His first two albums were original gospel songs. "I recorded two full gospel projects first because I felt that was my strongest material," Daniel says. His next album was secular material. His fourth album, The Way I See It, is a mixture of secular and gospel songs. Donna produced all four of the albums. Daniel records at Scott Vestal's Digital Underground Recording Studio in Greenbrier, Tennessee.  

"Most of my songs are from personal experiences," Daniel says, "but some are completely made up from my imagination."
