An endless need for self expression has helped songwriter and multi instrumentalist Daniel Walton focus on his creative vision as an independent artist to write and produce his debut EP titled Island, a beautiful, heartfelt collection of songs about love, loss and change.
The 28 year old from Hamilton ON has been involved in a handful of collaborative original bands spanning many genres (Wooly Mantis, Downstream) but Island is the first of many projects that are from the mind of Daniel as a solo act. Being able to have full creative freedom has allowed Walton to find his voice in the songwriter space.
The genre defying EP features beautiful soundscapes, familiar grooves and instrumentation reminiscent of the Laurel Canyon folk rock scene of the 60’s, with complex modern arrangements, ambient synth work, skilful musicianship and adept story telling.
Walton’s love for many styles of music from folk rock, psychedelic rock, jazz and progressive rock and genuine love of playing comes through clear as ever when witnessing him play live with his group The Dreamland Band, who fill venues in Hamilton and surrounding areas regularly, performing extended versions of Waltons original music with skillful improvisation and tight arrangements.
Daniel Walton has planned the release of Island for the fall of 2023 and will be followed up by more singles in the later part of the year and early 2024.
