Delaney Davidson - Lucky Guy

 

Lucky Guy is alweer het zevende album van de Nieuw Zeelandse troubadour. De muziek Delaney Davidson is misschien het best te omschrijven als avant-rock 'n' roll met country en folk invloeden overgoten met excentrieke ghost blues. Dit levert een eigen en vooral uniek sound op. Opvallend en vooral knap is de constante hoge kwaliteit van alle nummers op het album.

De verhalen die Delaney Davidson wil vertellen met zijn nummers , zijn uitvergrote momentopnames uit het leven.

Onwillekeurig doet de muziek van Delaney Davidson sterk denken aan het werk van Tom Waits en Nick Cave. Deze constatering zegt gelijk heel veel over de kwaliteit van het album en de zanger.

Delaney Davidson geeft met ' Lucky Guy ' wederom zijn visitekaartje af.

What was the first LP/tape/CD you bought with your own money?

 

Stravinsky - The Rite of Spring.


What inspires you to do what you do?

 

Weirdly enough its the idea of Music that keeps me going, 

I know somehow it feeds into itself.

That and learning more about the craft. The longer I do it the more I feel like a beginner.

I guess I am chasing some weird monster to try and see it up close.. 


How would you describe your perfect day?

 

Cheese sandwiches.. nothing else matters.. 


What does the next 6 months look like for you?

 

Touring, Rehearsing, Writing and Recording.. 

A lot of organising in between. ha ha


What should people know about you?

 

I am open to most suggestions.. ha ha


Is there something you would like to do more of in the future?

 

I have done a bit of Co Writing and also Producing. I really enjoy taking someone else's music into a certain direction. It would be nice to try more of this. Co-writing is an amazing way to discover how quickly music can flow.. the right recipe is magic. Also would love to do more Acting.. I have been dabbling with video production and was in a movie once.. I loved it.


What is the main goal you wish to achieve through your music, and what do you hope people get out of your music?

 

I am trying to build up a body of work. I think thats the main goal I am aiming for. Keep recording and writing. Make up some song book catalogue. I guess I would like people to find some sort of kick into their life when they listen to my music, either comfort or a push of some sort, maybe a way to look at things that might help them or a point of view they can identify with.. That and forging a sound I believe in. 


True or false: “Music is my first love”.

 

This is a dangerous question.. there is definitely a different right and wrong answer deepening on the audience.. ha ha

It is very high on my list lets say that much..
