Writing songs has always been the centre of my musical life. Under the name Daniel Land & The Modern Painters I released two albums of songs - Love Songs For The Chemical Generation, and The Space Between Us - along with several singles, EPs, and one-off appearances, on some great labels including Sonic Cathedral and Club AC30. Daniel Land & The Modern Painters was my Manchester-based band and collaborative project, initially with Graeme Meikle and Oisin Scarlett, and then later with Andrew Galpin and Jason Magee as well.
The Painters disbanded in 2012, and since then I have been living in London. My third album of songs, In Love With A Ghost, was released in 2016, and although it was released under my own name, it is a continuation of the same project, more or less. I also now have a great new live band, with my friends Brin Coleman, Gary Bruce, Rob Sykes and Adam Gummer. My latest album, The Dream Of The Red Sails, has just been announced, and is a proper return to the Shoegaze/Dream Pop style I am best known for. It is available to pre-order at the following link.
