The Daniel Wakeford Experience will be stopping by to play a handful of gigs in Sheffield this spring as it tours the UK.
Following a hugely successful year, Daniel Wakeford, power pop performer and star of The Undateables, will join his four-piece band for more live shows at Sheffield’s O2 Academy, O2 Institute Birmingham, and O2 Academy Islington.
Daniel, who has been writing and recording music since 2009 and won over Channel 4 audiences when he appeared on The Undateables, has risen to new heights in the past year. He started off the year securing his first ever nationwide UK tour, which saw him play some of his biggest shows to date and followed that with a new album, his second full length release, That’s How I See It, an album launch in his hometown of Brighton at the iconic i360, sold out gigs and national TV appearances to promote his music, including an interview on Good Morning Britain.
Daniel, who describes himself as a singer songwriter with autism, is an inspirational performer and is forging a new path through the music scene in the UK and portrays a much-needed positive image of learning-disabled people in the media.
Bringing his music and personality to an audience eager to hear his songs through two self-released albums and at live performances, Daniel’s story really is unique. This year, on Spotify alone he has reached 38,000 fans in 57 countries, with 156,000 streams and 5,000 hours of listening hours.
Daniel’s riff-driven, epic pop songs are about his life and the things he loves - from his family and friends, to bad feelings and Beethoven. His second album has expanded on these themes showing his love of travel and visiting new places. Visit danielwakeford.bandcamp.com for details.
