“Epic. Mr Daniel Steer, the man himself. He’s gone solo and the project is sounding fantastic. He does it with aplomb”, Sarah Gosling, BBC Introducing
‘The Wire’ is the second single from Daniel Steer’s forthcoming solo album due for November release and is a deeply personal and reflective song with meanings on several levels.
Like his recently released first single “Green”, The Wire comes from some dark times, yet it is a song of hope and redemption, of conquering demons, taking back control and emerging as a stronger person. The reflective verses crescendo into an anthemic, emotive and rousing chorus.
Of the writing process Daniel says: “On one level The Wire can be taken as a love song, but it also refers to the network within us connecting us to ourselves and to others, and how the choices we make to feed that network can either liberate or destroy us. It deals with how we self medicate with substances to make us feel better, but in reality the medicine of choice can be poison making us worse.”
Ultimately it is a song of hope and recognising what we are doing to ourselves and becoming stronger because of it.”
As frontman and songwriter for rock band Reigning Days, Daniel’s music has been played in the UK and internationally on BBC Radio 1, Radio X, Amazing Radio, Planet Rock, Virgin and Kroq and he has had tracks in the Top 10 in the Kerrang!, Scuzz and MTV charts and was Number 1 on Apple Rock. Having performed on main stages all over the world he will be announcing new live dates in the near future.
