Daniel James releases debut single ‘The Bridge’ on 21st April
Daniel James will release his debut single ‘The Bridge’ on 21st April through Grey Sky Records.
Hailing from Northern Ireland but now residing in London, Daniel James garnered attention after debuting tracks online last year, with support from the likes of Zane Lowe and The Line Of Best Fit, to name a few.
Brought up on his parents record collection of David Bowie, Van Morrison and Motown, Daniel only began writing songs after the loss of his grandmother, who had been a huge influence during his childhood. An avid documentary film watcher, Daniel takes song inspiration from sourcing topics which he relates back to his own experiences and conveys through his unmistakable voice and unique take on pop that combines soul, folk and gospel.
He will release his debut single ‘The Bridge’ next month which is a track that takes its source from a 1984 documentary about street kids in Seattle dealing with sex and drugs; ‘The Bridge’ is the place they escape to for moments of connecting with their true innocence. ‘The Bridge’ will also feature the B-Side ‘Stand With Me’.
