Glasgow native, singer/songwriter Daniel Docherty is poised to announce a brand new release with the arrival of ‘Something Beautiful’, an arresting, emotive alt-folk gem coupled with candid, observational lyrics, it is taken from the forthcoming EP ‘Only Time Can Help Us’ due this December.
Daniel explains: “‘Something Beautiful’ is about a relationship that came to an end. It’s about feelings of frustration, while one person is trying to keep something together, while the other person doesn’t seem to want to figure out difficulties. One person just wants to feel acknowledged that they have been trying, before they separate. Something beautiful wasn’t as it seemed.”
Having honed his craft on the streets of his home city before spreading his wings further afield amidst the tourists and locals alike in cities across Europe and Australia, Docherty recalls, “It’s a great way of writing songs and road-testing them almost immediately in front of the public. Not only is it a spontaneous and rewarding experience but one of the most comfortable and enjoyable platforms on which to perform.”
Once more teaming up with producer Ian Grimble (Bears Den, Daughter et al), the new EP ‘Only Time Can Help Us’ is Docherty’s follow up to 2018’s ‘Life Is What We Make Of It’ EP and sees this talented singer extending his writing from both a personal and wider perspective from childhood, formative years through to adulthood and all that the journey entails – fears, awe, emotions and heartache .
