Tell Another Joke at the Ol’ Choppin Block (1997)
Danielson is an American rock band from Clarksboro in East Greenwich Township, New Jersey, Gloucester County, New Jersey, that plays indie pop gospel music. The group consists of frontman Daniel Smith and a number of various artists with whom he collaborates. Smith has also released solo work as Brother Danielson.
When joined by his family the band is known as Danielson Famile or Danielson Family, whose members have included Smith; his "siblings Andrew, David, Megan, and Rachel; wife Elin; friends Christiaan & Melissa Palladino; [and] daughter Lilly". Sufjan Stevens has also recorded and performed with the group.
The band is known for Smith’s squeaky, falsetto vocals, innovative musical arrangements, and matching nurse uniforms, "that act, according to Daniel, as ’visual reminders of the spiritual and emotional healing taking place’ within audience members." During some performances Smith has "worn a nine-foot tall, hand-made nine-fruit tree to ’bear the good fruit,’" in reference to the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
