Writer and musician Daniel Maitland released his debut solo album, Rumours Of A Nice Day, on Folkwit records in 2009 This album has now been released on Spotify along with his 2020  Little Tiny Christmas album:

 

“…songs that grow and swell with each listen. Lovely.” – subba-cultcha.com 

Since then he has released a number of singles, including arguably the greatest Christmas song ever written, https://youtu.be/amtCZlRjRrk and is presently  writing and un-archiving a new double album The Electric Archive: Schmoltz and Voltz. 

He also reformed his  band for recent summer festival gigs, but was forbidden by the members from calling it Dan Maitland’s Collosal Ego Project.. so any name suggestions very much appreciated. Update. It is now entitled The End of The World Party Band. A name they ironically chose prior to the actual end of the world, or indeed the invention of the ‘End of the World’ party concept.

 

He was a founder member of the East Dulwich Writers group. And was selected for both of the Stories for Homes anthologies (tenth in the Amazon charts).

His poetry has been featured in magazines, on Sky TV https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxflSOWnn7A and used by the North Sea Radio Orchestra and other artists, including: Melanie Blatt, Nick Homes, Geno Washington and members of the Stereo MC’s.

Daniel played sax for many years with soul legend Geno Washington and worked in a number of other writing and performing projects – including the RSC and The Foundations.

He re-entered the world of gigging (his own material) in 2018 with a home-made summer tour  of gardens, kitchens and Greyhound festivals.

Dan currently teaches songwriting in schools pandemic permitting), and leads a number of South East London community choirs and a community band – for which he has no-one to blame but himself. Recent gig feedback: ‘One of the best gigs I’ve ever been to.’ Matt Ottewill, http://www.planetoftunes.com/Loved your set, Dan. Voice like silk.’ Ben Henderson www.bumperandthumper.com.
