Following press and radio acclaim for his recent singles Pieces Of A Puzzle and Honest Man and over 1.5 million Spotify streams since February, Daniel Pearson has unveiled another new single for streaming/download. Little Lies explores a disintegrating relationship with a poet’s eye for detail and adds vintage soul and gospel influences to his melodic classic rock songwriting.
“Little Lies is a pretty adult song about how a relationship can change over time” explains the singer-songwriter. “Sometimes life can take its toll on two people together. It’s about what happens when you stop being honest with each other and let that chip away at the love you share. The last few records I’ve released have been more country or classic rock in style – on this song I was aiming for an old school soul vibe, a kind of lived-in quality that felt modern too”.
With a loyal fanbase on streaming and social media and rave press from around the world, Pearson is a 21st-century digital artist steeped in analogue culture. In coverage of his three albums so far, writers for Uncut Magazine, For Folks Sake, PopMatters, Baeble Music & more have been quick to praise timeless songwriting and poetic lyrics that draw on classic rock, pop and Americana influences. His songs have also been aired by influential DJs on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6Music, BBC Scotland, KROQ, Triple J Radio & featured on TV shows around the world.
