Dan Aston Music


Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted regularly on here and that’s going to change now (for real this time). The truth is that it’s been a difficult few months for me on a personal level and various events that occurred in my life over the past year or so have unfortunately come between me, my creativity and the love I have for the things I enjoy most (music being one). There have been more than a few false starts with my music of late and that has been extremely frustrating for me as a creative person but I feel as though I’m finally in a position to get things moving in a positive direction again.

I’ve been writing and recording a lot of material since October of last year and I’m both happy and relieved to say that these ideas have been narrowed down to a collection that will be released as some kind of mini album/EP very soon. They are all very intimate and fragile sounding (basically a bit on the dark and depressing side) but are very personal to me and despite the fact that I’m my own worst critic I believe them to be among the best and most ‘complete’ songs that I have written to date.

In the meantime I’m going to be updating this feed a lot more and I’m going to try and do some vlogging which will allow everyone to see the behind-the-scenes completion of my latest release as well as an insight into my creative process and life in general!

There are a few other exciting things happening at the moment apart from my main solo work that I should mention. My band Devil’s Frying Pan have been getting a lot of radio exposure lately which is very encouraging and we are currently recording our debut EP, plus there’s also an android game called Fennec that I wrote the soundtrack for that is going to be released soon.

Thanks again everybody for your support, especially those who came to my most recent gig (seems like ages ago) and those of you who downloaded and shared my last single ‘Waiting For The Call’. Stay tuned for further updates 🙂
