Langley singer-songwriter Daniel Wesley is set to release his fifth studio album, Easy Livin’, on July 26.
Wesley co-produced seven tracks on the album, with Dave “Rave” Ogilvie (Skinny Puppy, Marilyn Manson, Jakalope), while three were produced by Greig Nori (Sum 41, Hedley, Marianas Trench).
Easy Livin’ features collaborations from Bedouin Soundclash’s Eon Sinclair and Sekou Lumumba, and Dave Vertesi of Hey Ocean!
The album sees Wesley push the music and songwriting boundaries of his previous albums.
“You get to a certain point where you’re trying to broaden what you have,” said Wesley.
“I mean you grow as a musician, you enter different head spaces.”
Head Outta Water is a power-rock song, while Easy Livin’ is a melodic acoustic track and Vagrant’s Life points to his roots in folk/alt-country by bringing in Vancouver’s Run GMC on banjo and slide guitar.
Wesley first broke on to the music scene when his song Ooo Ohh became the most requested song of 2007 at 99.3 The Fox in Vancouver.
The infectious rock-reggae single from Sing and Dance, raised the bar of his career and found Wesley playing to sold-out crowds throughout Western Canada and touring across Canada with The Trews, Ill Scarlett and Dirty Heads.
