Glasgow songwriter Daniel Meade cut his teeth in the pubs, clubs and venues of Glasgow from a young age. From the half empty piano bars one night, to sharing stages with acts like the Kings Of Leon, The Fratellis, The Zutons, New York Dolls and Glasvegas the next, his early and formative musical experiences were varied, interesting and somewhat eclectic, and continue to be so to this day. His band The Ronelles released debut (and only) album 'Motel' in 2006, which saw them off on tours of the UK, Japan and California. After a three month stint in LA, where he was exposed to a lot of old country music, he formed roots country-blues/ rock n roll outfit The Meatmen which took him all over the UK, and to Ireland and Morrocco on several gig residencies, all the while carving out a reputation as an exciting and formidable live act.
He released his debut solo album, the self-recorded, 'kitchen-made' 'As Good As Bad Can Be’ in 2013 to critical acclaim in the UK. It attracted much radio exposure, which led to a coveted BBC Introducing Session on 'Another Country With Ricky Ross' which showcased a live and very well-received performance.
Since then he has travelled far and wide, working with and sharing stages with acts such as Old Crow Medicine Show, The Proclaimers, Sturgill Simpson, Ocean Colour Scene, Pokey LaFarge, Willie Watson and Diana Jones.
