Check out the free download of the very interesting and emotional track ‘Lay Now’, taken from Daniel Inouwa’s debut ‘Firelight’ EP, released on 14th November 2012, on RABB.
The son of an Indonesian princess and a working class northerner, Daniel grew up between Jakarta and London but now resides in the latter.
He was inspired to make music after a chance session with Newton Faulkner and Sea Sick Steve.
He listened to them trade stories about where they’ve come from as artists and how they’ve developed since releasing albums and touring. However, the most inspiring moment was finding himself sitting in front of the legendary pair as they began to jam.
That’s when the inspiration became a reality. “This is the dream, making great music,” Daniel remembers. And he’s not looked back since.
It’s hard to tell that Daniel only started playing guitar in 2008 – he’s already carved a sound for himself that’s honest and pure.
Daniel notes that “a simple guitar and vocal can elicit the biggest emotions.”
Shortly after Firelight, his second EP – A Little Piece of Home – will be released, also on RABB with more singles and an album to follow in 2013.
