Balto grew naturally from that singular experience - they began to perform the album in full as an acoustic trio and then a quartet throughout New York City, quickly pulling together a tight-knit following of friends. They made a name for themselves playing dynamic, passionate shows - whispered songs of loss and foot stomping folk anthems. The release of October’s Road, originally a very personal passion-project, was met with a loud chorus of critical acclaim and grassroots, word of mouth support all over the world. In summer 2011, the band embarked on their first national tour, a self-booked, DIY ramble from the Pacific Northwest through the southwest, the midwest, Canada, and the northeast.
In August, 2011, Daniel left New York and moved to Portland, Oregon via Colorado. The next 6 months were spent in hiding, performing alone and writing the songs for Balto’s next release “Monuments.” The band reunited in June 2012 near Woodstock, NY to arrange and record the 6-song body of work - with Jeremy Backofen (The Felice Brothers, Gregory and the Hawk, Mice Parade) producing. Each song is a separate technicolor soundscape, with layers of instruments and melodies woven through a robust, creative rhythm section. In support of the release, Balto toured the west coast for several weeks in April and May, 2013, and is touring on the East Coast this summer.
