The Danielson Famile is a band that plays a quirky blend of Indie pop and gospel music. The members of the band are Daniel Smith and his siblings Megan Smith, David Smith, Rachel Smith (Rachel Galloway), Andrew Smith, wife Elin K. Smith, and friend Chris X. Smith (Chris Palladino). Recently, Sufjan Stevens has joined the band as an adopted member of the family, playing banjo on the album "Brother is to Son" and touring with them when possible.

In Daniel Smith's final year at Rutgers University, he experienced a spiritual reawakening and decided to create music. The album "A Prayer for Every Hour" was submitted as his thesis and received an A. While their lyrical content is unabashedly Christian, the Famile has nevertheless received strong press and support from the mainstream audience due to their musical inventiveness.

As demonstrated on the "Tri-Danielson" albums, there are two other facets to the Danielson sound other than the "Famile":

Brother Daniel: Daniel's "solo act", featuring sparser arrangements and meditative lyrics. Featured on "Brother is to Son."
Danielsonship: incorporates several guest musicians and a large choir, and has a slightly harder edge than the other incarnations.
