Danny Beardsley continues his rise with the release of a new single, “Blood From A Stone” , which is lifted from his eagerly awaited solo album, also called Blood From A Stone, out everywhere on Friday 20th September.
Coming at you from the Midlands, Danny Beardsley has been described as one of the most intuitive and convincing guitarists around. He first cut his teeth and plied his craft with Derbyshire rock band Isolysis before he went on to form Emperor Chung. Danny’s songwriting maintained its infectious quality in Emperor Chung, combining memorable classic rock with progressive touches that truly set the band apart from its contemporaries. In 2015, Danny, along with Isolysis Drummer Dave Wright, created instrumental progressive trio The Parallax Method. Described by Prog Magazine as “Devastatingly contagious”, they combine ultra-modern prog style with old school classic rock tones to create genuinely interesting song structures and refreshing melodic overtones.
With appearances at some of the most prestigious festivals including Download, Bloodstock, UK Tech Fest, Hammerfest, HRH Prog, HRH Road Trip to Ibiza, Rock and Blues Festival, Camden Rocks and Macmillan Fest, Danny’s musical endeavours have garnered support from the likes of Scuzz TV, Classic Rock Magazine, Prog Magazine, Kerrang, Metal Hammer, Total Guitar and Planet Rock. Danny is also an official ambassador for Orange Amps and a PRS Guitars supported artist.
With such a pedigree, Danny was destined to produce his own solo album. Danny remarks about the release:
This album has been four years in the making and has positioned me right on the edge of my comfort zone, but I feel I have grown from the experience, got some things off my chest and produced an album I am proud of. Becoming a father has taught me a lot in life and made me realise how important it is to be true to oneself and embrace our inner ambitions.
Serving up ten premium slabs of groove infused classic rock with a modern delivery, the album is a powerful offering, sure to ignite fans both old and new. With growing support from Planet Rock, Total Guitar, Powerplay Magazine and Classic Rock Magazine, it’s only a matter of time before Danny breaks out to the masses.
