For Immediate Release:
September 18, 2013
(Vancouver, BC ) - Vancouver based singer/songwriter Daniel Moir will independently release his 3rd album'Monday Morning' on Tuesday, October 1st. The Album Release Party for 'Monday Morning' will take place on Thursday, October 3rd at The Railway Club (579 Dunsmuir St.) in Vancouver, kicking off a short tour stint through BC, Alberta & Washington. See the full listing of tour dates below.
At just 23 years of age, it's hard to believe that Daniel Moir has already created 3 full albums worth of material. His last album, 'Road', was compared to Eddie Vedder, Rufus Wainwright and even The Beatles with Discorder Magazine calling it an “alternative folk trip that takes the listener on a quasi-cinematic journey through the great Canadian landscape." 'Road' was produced by Juno-winning producer Russell Broom (Jann Arden, Sam Roberts) and co-engineered by David Kean (Bjork, Audities Foundation).
With his new album 'Monday Morning', Moir decided to take on a more singular vision. Not only did he do all of the writing and arranging of the music but he also took on the producing, mixing and engineering duties. On top of that, he performed most of the music and instrumentation that is heard on the record. Why did he take on all of this on himself? Well, the answer is quite simple.
"I've always wanted to be a producer,” explains Moir. “It was just a matter of investing the time and money to really learn how to do it. I feel more comfortable having creative control over the recording process."
Daniel Moir has often been called a Canadian Troubadour as he draws much of his inspiration from the Canadian landscape and has toured extensively in both Canada and the United States. He's played at numerous festivals, toured as an opener with artists like Kevin Kane (Grapes of Wrath) and also opened locally for artists like Kathleen Edwards and Willis Earl Beal. Moir is a gifted instrumentalist with an honest talent for songwriting, his music is sparked by personal insight, life experience and eco-activism (a dollar from every copy of 'Monday Morning' sold will be donated to Ecojustice). His songs have seen chart positions at college radio and placements on TV, with his song "Change the World" (from his debut album 'Country & The Sea' ) appearing in the season finale of the hit NBC TV series 'Mercy'.
