Gearing up for the release of his new album Shapeless Things, alternative rock artist Daniel William Daidone takes his listeners on a wild adventure with this new track ‘On a Holiday’.
Influenced by an eclectic mix of artists including Talking Heads, The Cars and Weezer, Dan’s sound is a creative cocktail of modern rock, indie pop and New Wave.
Listen to ‘On a Holiday’ here:
A man with music in his blood, Dan is the grandson of violin virtuoso Adolfo Daidone (aka Al Duffy), who performed with the likes of The Tommy Dorsey Band, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong and Gene Krupa.
Dan has already received past exposure for his musical talents, four of his songs appearing in the US Showtime series, Shameless. Two of his tracks were also used in the animation short Bumble Beeing, which was accepted into the Sundance Film Festival.
Having toured extensively in a number of bands including Philadelphia pop-rock group Officer Roseland, Dan has played in locations including the UK, the US and Puerto Rico. Revered venues that he has played at include The Legendary Dobbs in Philadelphia and CBGBs in New York.
In 2008, Dan also took part in a marketing campaign for Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation. He was able to raise over one thousand pounds in music sales for the charity.
On top of music, Dan has also lent his creative talents to writing and is the author of a children’s book What Was Our Teacher Doing At The Mall?
Clearly an exciting character, Dan seems certain to spice up today’s rock landscape with his unique sound and persona.
