“With a sublime acoustic guitar solo, it’s no surprise that John Mayer is cited as one of Daniel’s influences……Daniel is definitely on the right track with his song writing and is clearly a very talented guitarist as well. An exciting future is ahead of him.”
Review of ‘The One’, Send Me Your Ears, March 2022
Daniel Barrie is a young upcoming singer-songwriter who refuses to allow his dyslexia to limit his song-writing. His imagination, observational skills and love of melody infuse each of his wonderful catchy acoustic pop songs.
Dan grew up in the Lake District and now lives in the West Midlands where he has been making waves in the local music scene.
Since an early age he has had a deep love of music and is inspired by the likes of John Mayer, James Taylor, Sam Fender, Chris Stapleton and Ashley McBryde. He has written and recorded songs that reflect teenage life from the moments of happiness and discovery to the pain it sometimes inflicts.
Described as a ‘gifted guitarist and talented storyteller,’ Daniel brings together acoustic pop, folk rock and blues in songs that move the listener both physically and emotionally. He invites the listener to join him on his journey of discovery, as his songs try to make sense of the world through the eyes of a young person.
Dan played on the BOA stage at the sold out Free Radio Hits Live gig at Birmingham’s Resort Arena in November 2021 and also played two stages at the 2021 Godiva festival. He has featured many times on BBC CWR, Amazing Radio (both UK and USA), Abbey Radio and Hillz FM and has collaborated with local musicians across the Coventry and Warwickshire area.
“Nods to Bob Dylan’s work appear throughout, for Daniel is quite the gifted storyteller”
