  2. some exciting (!) news

    26 June, 2015 by Dan

    I’m flipping excicontractted to announce that last Friday, I signed a recording contract with Uppah Music.

    It’s been in the pipeline for a few months now but having had a good chance to pray, get advice from some trusted individuals and make sure this is something I can fully commit to, I’m excited to crack on and start on a new adventure

    Love, Dan

    TroubadourExcited to play The Troubadour for the second time on May 20th.

    Played here on tour last year and the sound engineer was probably the best I’ve ever had at a show.
    Promoter is also a top guy so I’m expecting another great atmosphere.

    Facebook event and more info can be found here.

  5. WHY BUY?

    22 April, 2015 by Dan

    I’m confused.

    As artists, specifically musicians, should we now in 2015 just put songs on every medium? Why not right? Chuck it up on Spotify, iTunes etc. That way everyone can hear it right? Instant reach, more chance of more hits, more fans….you may not make more than 0.1p for a track streaming on spotify or 30p (after 3 months) with iTunes but down the road you’ll have more fans at gigs right?

    And you might get spotted by a selfless independent label who’s ruthlessly searching for the next best thing. We all know they’re trawling through soundcloud right now.

    2013. Streaming on the increase and download sales fall.

    2014. Most people have Spotify who have just seen a 43% increase in people signing up for premium accounts (9.99 for unlimited listening including being able to make offline playlists).

    Talent ultimately wins through though right? As long as you keep at it, one day one of your songs will get heard by the right person.

    2015 Tidal launches. Fanfare of celebrity musicians launch artist streaming site for artists. More revenue for artists right?
    No sign of. Yet.

    I’m angry.

    But I’ll get over it. It’s the seventeen year old in school who’s just written his first song. Maybe streaming will help him though…he’s automatically gotta massive potential fan base at school. My concern was that if he then he leaves school and tries to get out an tour/play some shows outside of where he’s from, he’d give it up earlier than he would have done 5 years ago, cos how can he sustain it? No-one’s buying CDs…he can’t fathom making 50 t shirts just yet and he’s almost paying the promoters to play the shows, let alone the other way round.

    I’m not making music to make money but the next few years look bleak for independent artists.

    Let’s focus on getting signed.

    Good evening campers!

    This is a preview of my brand spanking new track, ‘Hampstead Heath’

    Haven’t always found London the easiest place to live and this song is about taking a moment amongst a sometimes overwhelming city.

    Had a lot of fun recording this (cello, guitar and vocal were all recorded on the original track, using a phone and one rode mic).

    Enjoy it and keep supporting local music x
