Boulder musician Daniel Rodriguez on his new album ‘Sojourn of a Burning Sun’

Daniel shares his new journey as a solo act and life as a modern musician

The end of folk band Elephant Revival‘s star occurred at one of its brightest points — headlining Red Rocks amphitheater in May 2018.

The decade-old successful band planned to click off its light after the show, which left Boulder-based founding member Daniel Rodriguez free to spin into a new orbit.

Daniel, who has lived in Boulder since 2005, has since worked to develop a solo career, which has begun to get traction. He released an EP, “The Stars The Milky Way” in February 2019, and his first full-length solo album, “Sojourn of a Burning Sun,” on August 28 with a livestream concert at Boulder’s most epic music venue.

We spoke with Daniel about his new album, “Sojourn of a Burning Sun,” the transition from large, successful band to solo act, and navigating some of life’s big transitions.
