Ok, I kinda like this a lot. It’s not country, it’s not 60’s folk rock it’s actually some where in between. That makes it a fairly rare gem in my book. Daniel has such an interesting tone and an almost rough edge to his voice. He has a great cadence working for him in this track. It’s fun to listen to. I really enjoy the melody in the chorus especially. The guitar line is really well crafted, it’s very subdued through most of the song. But it kick up a notch during the chorus. I think I’m going to end up with this little ditty stuck in my head for a while.
I’m curious as to his other songs. I really like the style of this song and I hope some of his other work is in the same style. I would be equally happy to find that he writes and preforms in different song styles. I think it can be a lot of fun to listen to musicians play around with other genre’s even if it’s just adding an element or two to a song.
Who They Are:
The past few years have seen Leeds-based troubadour Daniel Pearson quietly build a reputation as being one of the best new singer-songwriters around. Blending elements of indie rock, alt.country and classic guitar pop, his immediately accessible songs deliver the emotional connection and honesty that only instinctively great songwriting can provide.
Daniel’s soulful vocals and finely-crafted songs have found themselves on the airwaves of BBBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, XFM, Amazing Radio and Australia’s biggest radio station Triple J. Writers for Uncut Magazine, Drowned In Sound, Shout 4 Music, Pop Matters, R2 Magazine, AllGigs, Sabotage Times, For Folks Sake and No Depression have been quick to celebrate the arrival of a new voice and have drawn comparisons to Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen in a series of rave reviews for his two albums Satellites and Mercury State.
Already a veteran of rock n’ roll and punk bands by his early-twenties, he had toured up and down the UK and released various singles and EPS before going solo in 2010. After deciding to maintain his artistic independence away from the machinations of a larger label, Daniel has become a very successful example of the new music industry – an artist that maintains control over every aspect of his career, has a real connection with a loyal and growing fanbase and competes for press and radio coverage with acts with huge marketing budgets through the simple strength of his music.
A compelling live performer, Pearson has shared a stage with acts like Michael Kiwanuka, One Night Only, The Bluetones, Willy Mason and Josephine as well as playing a string of headline dates of his own in the UK and USA. In an age of instant stardom, talent shows and endless media hyperbole, he is proving himself as a genuine
