Daniel Sproul on SoundBetter

Lead guitarist for Hard Working Americans, played with Grammy winner Ryan Bingham, original member of Rose Hill Drive

Hello! My name is Daniel Sproul and I play guitar. I started playing when I was a wee lad, around 5 or 6, and I have played ever since. I started a band called Rose Hill Drive and toured the U.S. and Europe for a long time. We opened for acts like The Who, Aerosmith, Stone Temple Pilots, Gov't Mule, The Black Crowes, and several others. We released 4 albums, 2 of which I mixed. After playing with Rose Hill Drive, I joined Grammy and Oscar winning performer Ryan Bingham, in the studio and on the road. I played on Ryan's album 'Fear and Saturday Night' as well as his latest live release 'Ryan Bingham Live'. After playing with Ryan, I recently joined a band called Hard Working Americans. I LOVE playing in this band, and it is truly an honor to be a part of an act that has so much talent and experience (Todd Snider, Dave Schools, Duane Trucks, Jesse Aycock and Chad Staehly).

I've made records with and learned from Brendan O'Brien, Nick DiDia, and Jim Scott. Working up close with these guys has been extremely educational and inspiring. Brendan, Nick, and especially Jim have helped me understand how to record and, more than anything, how to serve the song at hand.

Now that all the name dropping and junk is outta the way, I will say that I am a humble and grateful servant to music, and it would be an honor to help you!

    Fourth project complete with Daniel. Each one keeps getting better - this track was very much in its early stages but Daniel’s guitar tracking just completely accelerated the project. I couldn’t be more stoked to keep working on it with these awesome new guitar layers - world class work once again!!

    I was convinced Daniel is the best of the best from the very first project I worked on with him, but this last one absolutely guarantees it. I had some demo guitar parts that needed retracking but there were MANY nuances to the demo performance that I ideally wanted preserved. Daniel did it with precision - maintaining all the good and enhancing everywhere the demo parts fell short. He also ripped multiple solos and added additional layers that are AMAZING. 5/5 - my go-to guitarist.

    This is my second project with Daniel and it won’t be the last. Daniel took the time to listen CAREFULLY to my track and really read through the briefing to understand what I was after, which is absolutely critical. He then proceeded to come up with the perfect parts for my track and was transparent about his thoughts on things he thought were working / weren’t. I didn’t need any revisions, he ended up NAILING it but I know if I needed revisions he would’ve delivered! My new favorite guitarist.

    Daniel did a brilliant job on my tune! He gave me 3 full tracks to select from. There were so many tasty licks I used parts from all 3. He was a pleasure to work with. Great communication and wanted to be sure I was stoked about the part!

    I will definitely be sending more tunes his way. Thank you Daniel!

    Daniel did an incredible job on this song for me. I said, "Hey, dude. This song kinda sounds like old school Radiohead. Can you help me accentuate that?" And Daniel said, "Hold my beer." The song sounds like a Pablo Honey reject in the best way possible. Thank you!

    Daniel is in a class of his own - he's a MONSTER guitarist with a proven track record so I had high expectations. Daniel was quick to respond to my ideas and what he brought and captured breathed life into my track in a way that had me grinning from ear-to-ear on first listen. I knew early on I was going to enjoy working with Daniel, and I was COMPLETELY blown away by the end result. Incredibly fun, easy to collaborate with, and delivered world-class recordings - I'd recommend him to anyone.

    Daniel brought my beginner guitar licks to radio ready music. He helped arrange, he created massive and tasteful solo’s and gave power to the song I wanted. Daniel added bass and drums tracks just because he is that cool. He was easy to work with, very professional and I can’t wait to work with him again!!

    Daniel crushed it again! He's an assassin on the guitar. Incredibly creative and such a pleasure to work with. I'm already sending him new gigs to work on now. A+

    Daniel was amazing! He just came up with the sickest guitar for our song! I'm already sending him the next song to work on. He's a true professional and there was great and fast communication. I HIGHLY recommend him. A+++

    Daniel is a one-of-a-kind and truly gifted player. There are tons of great guitarists out there but Daniel is in a league of his own- he has his own signature and unique voice, amazing versatility, exceptional ear and taste, and the engineering chops to capture it. If you want to take your tracks to the next level with a truly rare and special player then hire Daniel- you won't be disappointed!
