Leeds-based singer-songwriter Daniel Pearson will release his new single 'Wishing Well' on March 14th via Saint In The City Records.
Like his acclaimed debut album 'Satellites' that gained airplay on XFM and BBC 6Music, the single was recorded and produced by Ed Heaton at The Soundmill. After drawing initial musical comparisons to Ryan Adams and Elliott Smith, 'Wishing Well' marks the beginning of a more expansive, experimental and anthemic sound. Moving on from the infectious country-tinged pop of his first release, the talented songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has ramped up the electric guitars and added strings, electronic loops, keyboards and gospel vocals to create a melody laden sound that draws on a range of diverse influences.
To celebrate the release, you can now download more new material - the post-apocalyptic love song 'Waves In The Sea' is available for free download from his Bandcamp page.
