Daniel Kemish is an Outlaw/Americana artist who claims he was “born on the wrong continent” (Musically). Although British born, Daniel prides himself on showcasing tones from his American influences. His warm, gruff voice and style portray a sound that is not often found in people of his age. His lyrics and songwriting style are more commonly associated with the early country singers during the outlaw movement of the 70’s.
Daniels Debut album was recorded at the World Renowned “Ocean Way” Studio A in Nashville and is being released Worldwide on the 25th March. The album that was recorded incredibly in a single day and promises to deliver a sound that is true of the music and songs that is so hard to find in today’s world of polished country music.
“I really wanted to bring it back to the roots and the way that my idols used to record, they would all be in the same room and play it live at the same time, this way it all adds to the rawness and purity of the sound, Chad and myself felt it really important to get the feel of the music right so we recorded everything with a natural flow which I really think brings more life to the songs.”
2015 saw Daniel share the stage with Bands like Kodaline, Bears Den, Rósín Murphy and James Blake to name a few as well as perform on various stages across Europe and the USA.
2016 see’s Daniel hit the road with his brand new band and a new sound.
With the New Single being released to Radio on the 22nd February and the album being released at the end of March 2016 it is shaping up to be a great year.
Make sure you catch Daniel at a show near you.
