Rising British singer and songwriter Danny Addison has just released his stunning new single, “Tribe”, the first taster of his forthcoming second EP.
The song takes an acoustic backing which rises to a cinematic sound with strings, piano courtesy of his brother Tom, and some powerful and thumping drumming from Cameron Easton.
“Tribe” is a powerful exploration of polarisation and sense of purpose in a world of keyboard warriors and call-out culture. The lyrics unearth the pitfalls of arrogance and narcissism whilst not underestimating their allure to susceptible minds. The songs strength lies in its film like quality and Danny’s heartfelt, honest words and vocals as both rise to a sublime climax.
His upcoming EP follows on from his ‘colourful’ debut with “Colour Songs”, released last year, although this new collection sees Danny hone his skills in writing and production that much bolder and wider than previously. The new EP, released in April, delves deeper into the themes of the first, as well as investigating the darker sides of the human condition. A second track will preceed the EP.
Hailing from a musical family in the small market town of Hitchin, Danny moved to Manchester in 2014 to study at the Royal Northern College of Music and immediately began working across a myriad of projects as a multi-instrumentalist. Here, he was able to lend his skills as a guitarist, bass guitarist, vocalist and classically trained violinist.
From 2014-18, Danny was a founding member of RNCM-born pop band, Young Monarch, with highlights including performances at the Royal Albert Hall, a Sofar Sounds Tour and working with Lael Goldberg (Hurts) and multi-platinum producer Roy Kerr (London Grammar, Paul McCartney, Lana Del Rey).
