The “Sounds of Summer” concert series at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers continues July 27 with a performance from Southwest Florida Hip Hop artist Chris Daniels.  The concert also serves as the official release party for Daniels’ new album, “Sweet Release: When Doves Cry Too.”  We’ll get a sneak preview as we hear tracks from the new album and explore our region’s vibrant hip hop scene and the deeply personal meanings and experiences that have inspired Daniels’ music.

With the stage name of Chris Daniels, a Southwest Florida hip-hop artist is hoping his music will get people to stop living in fear and get out and follow their passion.

Originally from Jacksonville, Florida, Daniels moved to Southwest Florida to attend Florida Gulf Coast University in 2011 and decided to stay. He writes about his experiences and the things he deals with in day-to-day life, which makes his music special — and relatable.
