The good news is it’s still the same super-cool live music venue feel with a large stage, big noisy boxes to assault your lugs and flashing lights to make it look all rock ‘n’ roll and that. But BIGGER and with MUCH better viewing, lots of seating, easier parking and access from the station and still in the city centre. Result, really.
All you gotta do is make your way over Ouse Bridge, hang a right at Popworld down George Hudson Street and after 100 metres take the first left at Salvation to go up Tanner Row/Toft Green; we’re near the top. Five minutes. What could be easier.
Leeds-based DANIEL PEARSON has been quietly building a reputation as one of the best new singer-songwriters around. Blending elements of indie rock, alt.country and classic guitar pop delivering emotional connection and honesty that only instinctively great songwriting can provide.
Daniel has been featured on 6Music, BBC Introducing, XFM, Amazing Radio and Australia’s biggest radio station Triple J. Uncut Magazine, Drowned In Sound, Pop Matters and For Folks Sake have been full of praise for his albums Satellites and Mercury State, drawing comparison with Ryan Adams, Dylan and Ben Howard.
Already a veteran of rock n' roll and punk bands, Daniel had toured the UK releasing singles and EPs before going solo in 2010. After deciding to maintain his artistic independence away from large labels, he has become a successful example of the new music industry – maintaining control over every aspect of his career, connecting with a huge fanbase and competing for media coverage against huge acts - and simply through the power of his music.
Daniel has shared stages with Michael Kiwanuka, Willy Mason and Josephine as well as his own UK and USA headline tours. Yes, a genuine talent built for the long haul and we're so pleased to bring him to Fibbers!
