This is a chat with Delaney Davidson, singer/songwriter, performing musician and producer. We talked about his work sharing songs and singing duets with Marlon Williams, co-writing and producing material with Tami Neilson and of course his own albums. But where did they come from? Where, in a musical sense, did he come from? It’s a story that involves Lyttelton, Melbourne, Europe and America. It’s a story that involves his father’s record collection and time spent in caring and hospitality. And from there to exploring the world and falling into professional music under the Voodoo Rhythm Records banner with the Reverend Beat-Man and Dead Brothers’ bands. And others. From there to his own recordings. And now he has a band Manos del Chango that he’s back in New Zealand with, touring.
From there he’ll go on to be part of The Last Waltz shows – so we talked a bit about that too. You’ll hear some of his music underneath our conversation at various points and so you’ll see – below – a playlist of those tunes. A wee sampler.
It was a great pleasure to talk with Delaney about some of his concepts and thoughts around music. I think he’s a great talent and I enjoyed finding out more about his past and what he intends on doing with music into the future…
