Daniel Markham Releases Third Video from New Album

By in News | No Comments

Daniel Markham has just released a third video from his brand spankin’ new album Just Like a Dream. The Denton, TX-based multi-instrumentalist has crafted a powerful dreamscape that blends elements of power pop, classic rock, and alternative music straight out of the 90s. The album was recorded and mixed by acclaimed producer David Barbe (Drive-By Truckers, Son Volt, Deerhunter) at Chase Park Transduction in Athens, Georgia, in May 2022, and features Kris Killingsworth on the drums and Kyle Harris on the bass. It is his tenth (!) full-length album captures the essence of a world emerging from the depths of the pandemic.

The album, mostly penned during a tumultuous year in 2021, reflects the collective journey of a society awakening from isolation. With a vision to fuse the energy of power pop with the timeless allure of classic rock and the rawness of alternative grunge, Just Like a Dream delves into themes of isolation, self-realization, evolution, loss, and optimism. Drawing inspiration from legendary acts like Big Star (hinted at from the album’s first single of the same name), Love, Tom Petty, etc. and using massive, resonating guitar melded with a potent rhythm section, Just Like a Dream crafts a sound that’s both nostalgic and contemporary, weaving together melodies that are as polished as it is raw and authentic.

The lead single, “Big Star”, serves as a poignant anthem, shedding light on the disillusionment and disconnection often felt when making original music in an oversaturated industry.

Just Like a Dream is poised to captivate listeners with its introspective lyrics, infectious hooks, and dynamic arrangements. As Markham continues to explore new sonic territories and evolve as an artist, the band remains committed to crafting music that speaks to the shared human experience.

Markham is also embarking on a Spring tour of the Southeastern United States:
