SOUNDCHECK featuring DAN MAITLAND
live at The Old Firestation, Frome
Saturday 27th April 2019
Writer and musician Daniel Maitland released his debut solo album, Rumours Of A Nice Day, on Folkwit records in 2009: Since then, he has released a number of singles, including arguably the greatest Christmas song ever written, and is presently remixing Rumours for digital release, and writing and un-archiving a sister album, for simultaneous release.
His poetry has been featured in magazines, on Sky TV and used by the North Sea Radio Orchestra and other artists, including: Melanie Blatt, Nick Homes, Geno Washington and members of the Stereo MC’s.
Daniel played sax for many years with soul legend Geno Washington and worked in a number of other writing and performing projects – including the RSC and The Foundations.
He re-entered the world of gigging (his own material) last year with a home-made summer tour – of gardens, kitchens and Greyhound festivals. And currently leads a number of South East London community choirs and a community band – for which he has no-one to blame but himself.
