Bio

Newcastle-based rising talent Dan Southward has quickly captivated audiences with the power of his shows. As a performer Southward brings to life his stories of the lost and found and the things that exist in between. He draws on his audience and leads them on an earnest journey through the rawness of trail and torment to places beyond.

“I only ever write from a place of need. It’s a definite need for relief and expression. The songs often mark times or events in my life or others, and to be able to return to those memories with perspective each time I perform is quite satisfying” Southward said.

Early this year Southward released his debut studio record Water and Wine, which clearly captures the performer’s love of storytelling.

What a voice! This track has a subtle intensity. Let You Down leaves you waiting for something big and loud to happen. What you get instead is a solid song with a laid back blues vibe that takes you down to a dark lonely place ... of greatness.

This is absolutely fantastic. Thank you for sharing your voice. I think everyone needs to hear a voice like this in their life at least at some point. The force behind this is great. I love the way the music is quite simple too, but also allows your voice to truly thrive.
