Biography

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 Ben Howard 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.
