A Path Untold is the ever-expanding musical vision that
composer & producer Daniel Merrill has been steadily crafting for years, resulting in a unique style that fuses elements from organic slow-house, future garage, downtempo, breakbeat and a variety of multi-cultural flavors. These elements, as a sonic lexicon, serve to build and explore a deeply moody and
symphonic emotional world, filled with a sense of mysterious
enchantment, spirits and the eternal relationship of opposites.
Daniel is an accomplished artist with a 20+ year track record of creating, releasing and performing his original work under a variety of monikers. Originally hailing from an isolated locale in the Appalachian mountains of rural western Maryland, he spent 16 years creating and developing in the Baltimore, MD area, and currently resides and works in Grass Valley, CA.
As the first musical artist on internationally prominent art
collective The Chambers Project, Daniel has recently released his 3rd full length A Path Untold album, "Sourcery" to widespread acclaim. Prior to A Path Untold, he had a long, rich history with collaborative duo Aligning Minds, including the release of 4 albums, multiple EP's and 5 major national tours.

A Path Untold's music has found dedicated support throughout a variety of cultural contexts and demographics, ranging from
packed clubs, festivals, art galleries and even medicine ceremonies. His style lends itself to a balance between danceability and cinematic appeal, designed to transform the dancefloor into sacred space and back again, while providing an evolving, enthralling ride that facilitates as much of an inner journey as listeners want to take.
Throughout his many years of recording, releasing and touring with both Aligning Minds and A Path Untold, he's accumulated substantial experience with creating memorable sonic explorations for gatherings of music lovers. His goal is always the same: to create, explore and share transcendent, impactful experiences with other human beings.
