The Georgia Straight presents Daniel Wesley
Live Nation has announced that White Rock, B.C., singer and guitarist Daniel Wesley will play the Commodore Ballroom on December 29, 2013.
Listening to the title track of Daniel Wesley’s latest album, Ocean Wide, fans new and old will hear a songwriter who has come into his own as a lyricist and creator of memorable melodies as he explores more mature, evocative themes with sometimes ruthless honesty, wisdom, perseverance, and gratitude.
“I had this little traveller’s guitar and brought it with me when my wife and I went to South America for six weeks. We were in Argentina and I was standing on this patio jamming and looking at the ocean and started singing, and the riff just came to me. I really feel that Ocean Wide is a representational song, lyrically, to my fans. I am saying, ‘this is what I do, and I am really thankful and I am going to keep doing it no matter what, because music is what keeps me alive.’ The words in the bridge and the verses are just about being grateful that I am doing music, and how much it means to me,” he said. “It’s just a well-rounded song to explain where I come from.”
Tickets for the (19+) show are priced at $25 (plus service charges), and go on sale on Wednesday (October 16) at 10 a.m.
Tickets are also available for purchase by phone at 1-855-985-5000. Tickets are also available at Red Cat Records, Highlife, and all Ticketmaster outlets. Tag Live Nation in your Facebook posts and on Twitter.
