Daniel Pearson - 4th July

Country singer-songwriter Daniel Pearson's new single, 4th July, has just been released. The immediately infectious track (hot on the heels of his acclaimed 2015 Alone, Together album) is a freewheeling slice of his songwriting talents that welds driving guitars, Johnny n’ June vocal harmonies & raucous harmonica into an ironic tale of love gone sour that fizzes by in under three minutes.

Daniel has released three albums to widespread critical acclaim around the world. Writers for Uncut Magazine, R2 Magazine, The Daily Mirror, Drowned In Sound, No Depression, Americana UK, PopMatters, Baeble Music & many more have been quick to praise timeless songwriting that fuses poetic lyrics to classic country & rock dynamics. His songs have been aired by influential DJs on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, KROQ, Lightning 100, Amazing Radio, Triple J, Double J & more. TV has also made use of his emotive vocals & melodies, with his songs soundtracking hit shows in the UK. With albums praised for their lyrical skill & willingness to incorporate garage rock, blues, folk and gospel influences into his core country sound, 4th July offers a more direct example of Pearson’s ability to craft nagging pop melodies within a story of betrayal & independence between two lovers.

In addition to winning over media tastemakers, Daniel has also been a word-of-mouth success story online with thousands of fans regularly sharing his songs on Twitter, YouTube, Soundcloud & Spotify. This loyal fanbase has powered him to 20,000 iTunes downloads, over 300,000 streams & successful solo tours of the USA & UK.

4th July is an attention-grabbing introduction to an artist with a wealth of great songs. In an age of conveyor-belt rock & disposable cookie-cutter pop, Pearson is proving himself as a genuine talent built for the long run.
