The debut single 'Bad Day'
'Bad Day' is a remarkably infectious pop song that has already spent seven weeks at the top of the French airplay charts and looks set to repeat that feat in Austria, Sweden, Italy and Spain. 'Bad Day' is one of the many highlights from Powter's remarkable self-titled debut album that follows on August1 st.
Produced by Mitchell Froom (Elvis Costello, Crowded House) and Powter's long-term collaborator Jeff Dawson, the album confirms Powter's fine songwriting talents with standout tracks such as the memorable opening track 'Song 6', the driving melodies of 'Suspect' and the delicate ballad 'Jimmy Gets High'
Raised in British Columbia, Canada, vocalist and keyboard player Daniel Powter was a talented violinist as a child, yet dyslexia made it hard for him to read music and therefore to keep progressing as a classical musician. Powter, a fan of Prince, Fleetwood Mac and Duran Duran, concentrated his talents on the piano; a move that not only allowed him far greater musical freedom, but also impressed the girls more than the violin ever could.
Powter enrolled as a music student in Edmonton, but once again reading music proved to be a hindrance. He dropped out, moved to Vancouver and started working with Dawson. The duo complimented each other perfectly and Powter found writing and creating music to be a faster and more satisfying process than ever before. Powter was soon signed to Warner Bros. and the pair began working on the album with Froome, whose ability as a session player as well as a producer adds such a rich variety of textures to the album.
