Midlands based rocker Daniel Trigger has released a video for his new single Penitence.
Daniel Trigger will be a familiar name to melodic hard rock fans in the Midlands. An experienced singer/songwriter who classifies his music as ‘stadium rock’, Daniel spent his early years writing and singing with school and local rock bands, before joining metal band ‘Full Tilt’ in 1995, with whom he recorded one album.
Daniel later moved on to sing with rock/ blues outfit ‘Easy’, before forming his own band ‘Trigger’ in 2003, which performed melodic rock in the style made famous by the stadium bands of the 80’s. ‘Trigger’ recorded 4 albums and ran for 8 successful years before reaching a natural conclusion in 2011. From here on, Daniel continued writing and recording under his own name as a solo artist, and recorded 3 albums, ‘Infinite Persistence’ (2012), the critically-acclaimed ‘Army Of One’ (2014), and ‘Time Of The Titans (2017) which received glowing reviews from the worldwide music press. All 3 of these solo albums fell into the category of ‘melodic yet heavy rock’, combining powerful downtuned guitar riffs with soaring vocals – imagine crossing Bon Jovi with Alter Bridge, and that will give you the idea.
It was with the release of ‘Time Of The Titans’ in 2017 that Daniel began donating all proceeds from purchases of his music to charity, supporting worthy causes such as Marie Curie Cancer Care, Dementia UK and the Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign.
With 3 heavy rock albums under his belt, Daniel made the decision in 2017 to return to his melodic roots, and also explore an interest in country music. The result is a new rock-country crossover album called ‘Right Turn’, which steps away from downtuned heavy rock in favour of greater musical subtleties, infectious melodies and lyrical optimism, and provides the opportunity for Daniel to make more use of instruments such as acoustic guitar and piano. ‘Right Turn’ can be purchased from all on-line music stores, and also from www.danieltrigger.bandcamp.com, where all proceeds are being donated to the Mind UK mental health charity.
