Electronic Press Kit
Dan and Faith are an award-winning, New England-based husband and wife singer-songwriter duo who describe their music as dream-inspired folk. Daniel Senie (guitar, banjo, harmonica, vocals) and Faith Senie (mandolin, bass, ukulele, dulcimer, vocals) tap into dreams and everyday life in crafting their original songs.
Raised in New York City and the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, Dan has been singing for as long as he can remember, including the New York All-City Chorus and Concert Choir. These groups performed in Lincoln Center, Herald Square and were often requested for special events.
Faith was raised in upstate New York where she played piano, was an accompanist for school shows and concerts, sang in her school choir, and also took to acting. She and Dan met Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Their brand new album, Then and Now (late 2019), and the prior two, Seeking (2016) and Simple Grace (2014) are available upon request in physical or download form.

Press / Reviews
“Dan and Faith’s latest CD, Seeking, demonstrates the rich maturity of their progress as singer-songwriters. From the evocative “Looking for the Road Less Traveled” to the trad-styled
“Deep Cold Sea,” to the gospel-tinged “On My Way,” to the delightful familiarly referential
“Driving With Friends” — it is a treat worth listening to and sharing with others.”
“Dan and Faith approach each recording project as a step forward on their own path toward a kind of music/dream-inspired enlightenment and also as an insightful and compassionate outreach to their listeners. The lyrics are honed with hand tools like the beams in a New England barn, and the production is handled with the same care and attention to detail. With the addition of caring side-persons, including the inimitable Lorraine and Bennett Hammond, and studio ace Billy Novick on woodwinds, this collection lifts Dan and Faith once again to the next level; in songwriting, performance, and most importantly, in their message of hope and encouragement to all fellow seekers.”
“In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, the lyrics of Daniel Senie’s song, “Simple Grace,” strike a poignant chord. The raw emotions of fear and pain are balanced by hope in the very first verse: “We come in fear, we come in pain, Shed many tears, like falling rain, But through it all, it’s clear to see, The light of love will set us free.”
