West Coast Sun – I wanted to write a song that could connect my memories of growing up on the Welsh coast to temporarily living on the East Coast of Australia describing genuine stories. I enjoyed exploring unusual rhythms and the exotic beat drives the song contrasting with the nostalgic, bittersweet tone of the chorus. The multi layered texture keeps a relaxing peace throughout the song inspired by ‘The Beach Boys’.

‘Along This Time’ is definitely the love song of the EP which was co-written with Richard. I really enjoyed building the body of this song with stunning producer Lauren Deakin-Davies. Richards more traditional folk picking is perfectly matched with the dreamy electric guitar tones that grow to the conclusion of the song with a timeless feel from the distortion inspired by the young, graceful tones of Billie Marten.

The tracks are on my EP FLY which is available to order & download at https://daniellelewis.bandcamp.com/

My 3rd EP ‘Fly’ explores the depth of my writing and spectrum of my voice. These songs are a window into growing up on the Welsh West Coast, travelling and evolving as an artist and young woman. I wanted the songs to hold a more mature and organic sound and songwriting.
it could stand up in any era‘ – Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales
The EP has received amazing support from BBC Radio Wales with 5 out of 6 tracks being played regularly plus 2 tracks added to their Welsh A List Playlist. Radio Cymru has also been championing ‘West Coast Sun’, ‘Perthyn’, ‘Cartref ym mhob man’ and the Welsh classical number ‘Hiraeth’ on the EP.
