Daniel Sky performing at Snoring Sasquatch

Web Lead

Daniel Sky performs at the Snoring Sasquatch on Dec. 18.

Daniel Sky is a singer/songwriter originally from Winnipeg, Man. He has lived in the Rockies, on the Coast and on the Prairies. He has resided in the very musical west end of Toronto since 2008, when he released his debut album On The Round, produced by David Baxter (Justin Rutledge, Treassa Levasseur).

Since then, he has toured the country and has played Toronto hot spots Lees Palace, the Horseshoe Tavern, the Dakota Tavern, Not My Dog, the Cadillac Lounge and the Cameron House, where he was artist in residence last summer.

This fall, he released his new record, Spider Milk, produced Derek Downham (the Beauties, Andy Kim) and is enjoying another Canadian tour this fall/winter, including his stop in Creston on Dec. 18.

“Spider Milk is an explosive infusion of a melodic pop sensibility (a la E.L.O.) and a rock ’n’ roll soul reminiscent of the sounds of Elvis Costello and the Traveling Wilburys,” said Sky.

Like a Coen Brothers film, these songs will take you on a wild ride through a melodic and soulful cinematic soundscape with the drive and intensity of a hawk circling the sky after the rain. ¨

This year, two of Sky’s original compositions will be featured in the universal Studios film Blue Crush 2, and in 2010 he composed an original theme for an award winning documentary, Las Aguilas Humanas (The Human Eagles).

Sky’s songs can be heard regularly on CBC Radio. Check him out at www.danielsky.com or www.danielsky.bandcamp.com.

Tickets are $10 at Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books, or $12 at the doors, which open at 7 p.m. The show begins at 8.
