"NET THE BED" - MITCH DANIELS LIVE
Or see my #NetTheBed page for more info >>>
Mitch Daniels spent the early years of his childhood and education in Kenya, where his family live. Having all his immediate family dispersed across the globe from Moscow, to Perth and Nairobi, Mitch came to London a few years ago to make a life for himself on the local music scene.
Through gigging extensively and immersing himself in the local circuit he stumbled upon several like-minded musicians and has now started working with a full-band.
First he joined forces with Tom Triggs, percussionist, guitarist, singer and songwriter. Mitch and Tom embarked on a journey as an acoustic duo.
Next came Julio Diaz (bass) also a fine singer, pianist and tunesmith himself. With Tom and Mitch both being "harmony freaks" when Julio also expressed his love of harmonies… two very quickly became three.
As a trio it was decided that some dark and bluesy guitar solos could not be done without. And so in came Jesús Gómez Gutiérrez. Also discovered playing at the local Oxjam in Kentish Town. Jesús' Guitar work is outstanding and his good humour brought the band to life.
And so "THE MITCH DANIELS BAND" was born. Combining, folk/rock with jazzy chord progressions, (and elements of comedy), their light hearted lyrics and three-part harmonies tell a story with every song.
Now together they are bound for the O2 Academy2 Islington on 18th October for a gig known as "Net The Bed" where they will be raising funds for "Malaria No More UK". Next year? Possibly an album… but I think the boys are all keen for a tour!
