It’s been almost a year of loss and healing for all of us who knew and loved Gene and were touched by his incredible presence. We shall endeavor to keep his spirit alive through this site with his music, his musings, his writings, his philosophy, much of which has never before been shared. Like Gene himself, this will be dynamic and ever-changing and is for us a labor of love. This will be a celebration of his life.
Gene McDaniels, adored father, adoring husband and incredible friend passed gently into the sweet forever on July 29, 2011 at his home on the Maine coast that he loved so much. Gene is music: lyrical, complex, joyful, perceptive, political, romantic, multifaceted, melodious and magnificent. He is a man of great passion, countless musical personalities, an activist and a spiritualist, a patriot and a rebel, the singer and the song. He loved deeply and is deeply loved. Gene’s continuing body of work and ongoing projects will be brought forth over time. Please enjoy the ever-unfolding artistry and vision of this prolific artist, unique spirit, and remarkable man. As Gene says, stop by and visit sometime.
