I Am Your Man
It is a career transition phase for prolific singer/songwriter Daniel Wesley now. Since releasing his sixth album, Ocean Wide in 2013, he has returned to independent status after a stint on top rock label 604 Records that found him working with producers like Greig Nori, Dave Genn and Dave 'Rave' Ogilvie. New album I Am Your Man showcases a laid-back and mellow vibe to both Wesley's voice and his melodic songs, and this album is lighter and more acoustic-based than his previous two albums. There are subtle Caribbean strains to some songs, and he mixes things up nicely on "Funky Jam", a tune that is just that. Closing cut "Sing This Song" references "a blanket on the beach, a basket at our feet", which sounds like the ideal place to enjoy this appealing album.
Wesley has six dates in B.C. in June and July, including a June 6 show at Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom. On July 4, he plays the Seven Music Festival in St Albert, AB.
