Dan Wilde has been performing his own brand of richly observant folk both in the UK and around the world for the past five years. His new video, Abusing My Position is taken from his 2nd studio album ‘With Fire In Mind‘ and was filmed in the Cambridge Museum of Technology, set in the thick of the industrial revolution.
Three studio albums in, the evidence is clear he’s an extraordinary song-smith, while his ‘stunning’ guitar playing (Maverick Magazine) has led to an endorsement from Fylde guitars. Previous releases, ’This is the Place’ (2010) and ‘With Fire in Mind’ (2013), cemented his reputation in the folk world, while his third album ‘Rhythm on the City Wall’ (2017) have taken things to the next level, securing him a contract with Wild Sound (One Little Indian) and premier folk booking agency Strada.
Originally from Blackpool, Dan now lives in Cambridge — but his wanderlust has taken him touring through the USA, Germany, Switzerland, Holland and the Czech Republic. He has recently returned from a six-month stint in Russia, where he recorded large chunks of Rhythm On The City Wall.
