Daniel Kosel performs The Universal Language on April 27 at 7:30 p.m., at the Alberta Bair Theater.

Kosel’s musicality provides a collaboration of rock, blues, and country music, otherwise known as “Crues” music. With intermittent narratives between songs, Kosel’s goal is to allow his audience to find a deeper connection with his music and their own personal reflection, according to a press release from the ABT.

Born in Seattle, but raised in Montana, Kosel credits musicians like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Chet Atkins, Dwight Yoakam, Aretha Franklin, Buddy Holly, George Jones, John Fogerty, Merle Haggard and ZZ Top as inspiration to his work.

In 2017, Kosel recorded two live albums: "Beartooth Stage" and "The Rain." The albums capture the essence of what an audience member can expect at his shows: poetry, soulful guitar and raw lyricism.

“I write music and poetry to bring light into a world filled with darkness,”  Kosel said in the press release. “I love sharing the healing power of my gifts with those struggling with grief, trauma, pain, anxiety, sadness, depression, regret, abuse, addiction, and loss.”

Tickets are $30 and go on sale Friday, March 9, at 10 a.m., at the Alberta Bair Box Office, 3rd Ave N. and N. Broadway. For more information call 406-256-6052 or online at www.albertabairtheater.org.
