SUTTON singer and songwriter Danny Apple will set off on his road to success after releasing his indie-acoustic debut Ain’t got no time/ Feelin’ on 12th September.
Danny (32) has been playing for 15 years and is embarking on his first UK mini tour, which begins in Sheffield at the Frog and Parrot pub and takes in Liverpool’s Zanzibar club and Islington’s Crown and Anchor.
His debut single, with Martin Weston on drums and Phil Grafton on bass and keyboard, will be released on all major downloading sites and on his Facebook page www.facebook.com/dannyapplemusic/ for 79p.
Danny is keen for local music fans to check out his work and download the single.
His influences include The La’s, the Verve and Small Faces and he has played many local venues, including the Black Market pub in Warsop ahead of the release of his single, and the Town Mill where he supported former Oasis guitarist Bonehead.
In the near future he will also be on radio at Mansfield 103.2 with Ian Watkins promoting his new single.
Danny described what he felt was his best performance, at the y-not festival.
“It was the best reaction I got,” he said. “I was in the acoustic tent and there was a problem with the main stage because wind had blown down the speakers.
“Everyone just piled in to the acoustic tent and it went down a storm.”
And he added: “As for the future I’ll see how my single sells and go from there.”
Supporting acts which will accompany him on his mini UK tour are yet to be confirmed, but Danny says Manuka Honey are likely to be on the bill.
Previously Danny had been busking for five years in Mansfield town centre and making appearances on acoustic nights and other events in the Mansfield and Ashfield area.
He developed a passion for music at a young age, when he was 13 and saw that his friend had been given a guitar as a Christmas present.
The single was recorded in Newcastle at Base HQ and was produced by Liam Gaughan.
