“Asking For Trouble” (Wave Three)
At just 24, Dan Bettridge already possesses a voice that emanates the kind of experience, rawness, and soul you’d expect from a blues singer many years his senior. His style is an amalgamation honed from his parents’ record collection – James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and his own love for artists such as Frack Ocean, The War On Drugs, Childish Gambino and John Mayer among many more.
Dan Bettridge is an artist whose output has defied rigid classification as soul, rock or country. Bettridge stands up with the kind of growl and swagger you’d expect from a singer-songwriter twice his age. Dan continues to turn heads having made his SXSW debut this year, and returns with ‘Asking For Trouble’ (Wave Three), the third instalment of his anticipated debut album due to be released across CD, Vinyl and digital on July 6th.
‘Asking For Trouble’ (Wave Three)
In Dan’s case, his style is an amalgamation honed from his parents’ record collection – James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and his own love for artists such as Frack Ocean, The War On Drugs, Childish Gambino and John Mayer among many more. Such a rounded music experience provided the perfect range of classics and modern contemporary sounds to inspire an artist to produce instant classics.
His debut release, the stripped-back, beautiful ‘Hunter’s Heart’ EP – was embraced by Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1 and by Dermot O’Leary on BBC Radio 2, showing an immediate ability to engage listeners across the tastemaker and classic spectrum. Following multiple sessions at the legendary BBC Maida Vale Studios and supporting the like of Band Of Horses on the UK tour in 2016, Dan released brand new singles ‘Heavenly Father’ and ‘Blame’ in 2017.
His debut album, released in waves has been steadily building Dan’s stock across Spotify with ‘Asking For Trouble’ (Wave One) & ‘Asking For Trouble’ (Wave Two) picking up thousands of streams already and will culminate with the full ‘Asking For Trouble’ album.
