With it being St. David’s Day today this new video for West Coast Sun from Danielle Lewis is perfectly timed. The track features on her third EP ‘Fly‘ and will be released as a double A-side single ‘WEST COAST SUN & ALONG THIS TIME’ via Folkstock Records on 31 March 2017.
Danielle said “I co-wrote ‘West Coast Sun‘ with Richard Llewellyn from Welsh Alt Folk duo Paper Aeroplanes. I wanted the song to connect my memories of growing up on the Welsh coast to temporarily living on the East Coast of Australia through describing genuine stories. I enjoyed exploring unusual rhythms; the exotic beat drives the song contrasting with the nostalgic, bittersweet tone of the chorus. The multi-layered texture keeps a relaxing pace throughout the song, elements of which were inspired by The Beach Boys.”
Danielle is building a solid reputation which has resulted in some great high-profile TV and Radio performances. More recently she was invited to perform as a guest artist at the International Woman’s Day press launch at Wales Millennium Centre as well as a performance at the Voices of Wales Concert at the National Assembly for Wales, Cardiff.
Upcoming shows include Focus Wales Festival, Tafwyl and more to be announced. She’s certainly one to watch for.
