Whatever You Need

Johnny Ray Daniels

Eastern North Carolina’s Johnny Ray Daniels, patriarch of the sacred soul Daniels family, is set to release debut solo album Whatever You Need. Produced by Bruce Watson and Will Sexton in Memphis, TN at Watson’s Delta-Sonic Sound, the elder Daniels’ album is an authentic gem. Johnny Ray has previously been featured on the Hanging Tree Guitars compilation album, as well as 2021’s Sacred Soul of North Carolina

He taught his own children how to sing. Son Anthony ‘Amp’ Daniels leads NPR Tiny Desk Concert alums Dedicated Men of Zion and lends backup vocals to Whatever You Need, alongside Johnny Ray’s granddaughter KeAmber Daniels.
