"Sorrow and solitude, these are the precious things. And the only words that are worth remembering." ” - Townes Van Zandt


“Daniel Rey” is the solo Americana side-project of singer/songwriter Dejan Kralj, who has spent the better part of the last three decades plying his trade as a songwriter and bass guitarist with Milwaukee's reclusive pop-rock outfit and former Atlantic Records recording artist and EMI Publishing artist, The Gufs.  Although currently residing just outside of Chicago in the "Veltway" Corridor of Berwyn, Cicero and Oak Park, Rey(the Spanish translation of Kralj) splits his time between his musical "hometown" of Milwaukee and a small rural homestead in southeastern Indiana.  Through Daniel Rey, Kralj rambles off to explore a musical landscape far from the familiar sounds that most have associated with him and his music over the years. Daniel Rey will release his debut album, "Living Low" in 2020.
