Singer-songwriter Daniel Pearson is back with a bluesy and soulful new song today. Brother is powered by a booming, hip-hop influenced drum rhythm, chunky guitar riffs and Pearson’s gritty croon, and is on all streaming/download platforms now.
After a series of strong releases showcasing an atmospheric grasp of moving acoustic songwriting, Brotherallows Pearson to flex his classic rock muscles and expand to a harder sound without sacrificing the core appeal of both his Americana authenticity and ear for a pop hook.
“People tend to think of me as this quiet, sensitive singer-songwriter, but I got my start in rock and punk bands and have always loved loud guitar riffs and big drum sounds” explains Pearson. “Brother is me expressing myself that way, and pushing myself to play everything on the record was a cool challenge. It’s good to change things up – nobody wants to drive in the same lane all the time. Lyrically, it’s kind of a call for some kind of unity, however hard that may seem in our current climate – despite all the division and entrenchment, at some point we’re gonna have to bite the bullet and find common ground.”
With a loyal fanbase on streaming and social media and rave press from around the world, Daniel Pearson is a 21st-century digital artist steeped in analogue culture. In coverage of his albums, writers for Uncut Magazine, PopMatters, Baeble Music & more have been quick to praise timeless songwriting and poetic lyrics that draw on classic Rock, Country and Grunge influences.
