Daniel Duke – Brother
Daniel Duke is an award winning singer-songwriter from Northern Ireland.
Last year Daniel won first place in the folk/singer-songwriter category of the International Songwriting Competition, with his song ‘Borderline’. The contest, judged by industry professionals and bands like London Grammar and Bastille, included Vance Joy and Kimbra in its list of winners.
This year, he took the ‘unpublished prize’ of the Unsigned Only songwriting competition and is now being mentored by top music publishers. As well as this Daniel won ‘Best Unsigned Male’ in the Best of British 2016 Unsigned Music Awards, voted for by listeners of the nationally syndicated BoB Unsigned Radio show.
After launching a hugely successful Kickstarter Campaign in January, Daniel came to us with a big task – record an album that would live up to this string of achievements and make his Kickstarter backers happy. The resulting record, ‘Brother’, was released through Little Victories Records and AWAL on the 29th April 2016 and has been going strong since. The album has received strong reviews, as well as regional and national radio airplay.
“James and Danny made the recording process fun and easy. James’ ear for music is impeccable and I truly believe the album would be nothing without these guys! I couldn’t recommend North South Recordings more!” – Daniel Duke
