Daniel Sahad, the main vocalist of the Austin-based rhythm and blues band Nané, passed away on April 10th at the age of 29. On Monday, April 11, the group announced Sahad’s demise on Instagram in a statement that read, “It is with great sadness that we must inform you that our beloved leader, Daniel Sahad, died away yesterday night. Please allow his family and friends the time and space they need to grieve. “Thank you, everybody.”
Who was Daniel Sahad?
As per the band’s webpage, Daniel Sahad formed Nané alongside musician Ian Green in 2016 at The University of Texas, where they were planning to party and perform cover versions for their buddies. Scott McIntyre, a bass player, was included on that list, and they started working on their debut studio record, which would be issued in November 2020. They’ve previously performed for Black Pumas, Bob Schenider, Eric Tessmer, and Sir Woman, among others.
Nané performed in Town Hall in an interval last week during the Austin Town Hall meeting, and Daniel Sahad died only three days later of that event. Thursday, April 7 has been designated as “Nané Day” in Austin by the Austin Economic Development Organization. The group was preparing for a number of spring and summer shows, along with a performance at Gonzales’ Float Fest.
Tributes to Daniel Sahad
Fans, coworkers, and fellow artists have been paying homage to the much-loved musician all over social networking sites. “City Council was pleased to have live music back in chambers last week for the first time since before the outbreak, and Nané was a fantastic choice,” Austin Mayor Steve Adler wrote. “This is heartbreaking news. Today, our sympathies are with Daniel’s family and the band.”
John Speice IV, a Grammy-winning drummer who collaborated with Nané on their debut studio record, posted on Facebook, “I was hesitant to share this dreadful news until someone else did. We realized he was gone yesterday evening. We’re all at a loss for words. It’s excessive. We were robbed of this wonderful baby and all of his abilities, which is very unjust. I’ll post more thoughts later but for now, all the prayers are up for his family. I LOVE YOU, Daniel.”
On April 14, the band was set to perform in San Antonio, accompanied by performances in Dallas and Houston.
