Joining Van Hunt on his first visit to Melbourne is Daniel March. Fresh from a European tour supporting Mama's Gun and Minneapolis funk legend St. Paul Peterson (The Time, The Family/fDeluxe) Daniel is an exciting new face taking his place amongst the independent soul music movement with his debut self titled album. Released in Japan via a deal with acclaimed label P-Vine and in Korea through Leaplay Records (Angus & Julia Stone, Brian McKnight) the 10 track long player showcases a rich blend of soulful sounds that is both lyrically refreshing and musically appealing.
Splitting his time between London and Sydney, Daniel March has been honing his craft working with the likes of Grammy nominated singer, songwriter, and MC, Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh (The Roots, Common), Chantae Cann (best known for her work with Grammy Winners Snarky Puppy and Foreign Exchange), Jordan Rakei, Wallace, Thandi Phoenix, Young Gun Silver Fox's Andy Platts and rising UK star Tiana Major 9 to name but a few.
Influenced equally by the likes of Prince as he is the soulful acoustic work of Ben Harper and John Mayer, Daniel's organic early recordings took place in Atlanta, Georgia USA alongside the likes of Khari Cabral Simmons (Donnie, India Arie), acclaimed songstress Julie Dexter and Bugz In The Attic's Daz-I-Kue but it was his 2015 single 'Nina' that saw him mentioned as one to watch in soul circles. In December 2017 Daniel followed up 'Nina' with the single 'Falling For You' and a remix by Ashley Beedle through Ramrock records. 'Falling For You' landed Daniel substantial airplay on UK radio such as Mi Soul, Solar, Jazz FM and BBC.
