Daniel Trigger is an experienced hard rock artist from the Midlands UK, who has just released an album of original work called "Infinite Persistence". Combining crushing guitar riffs with stadium-filling anthemic choruses, Infinite Persistence has a muscular heavy rock sound that displays influences such as Alter Bridge, Guns N Roses and a modern-day Europe. It was in fact Europe that kick-started Daniel's music career in 1989, where "The Final Countdown" was played during a laser light show at the London Planetarium which a young Daniel attended. Immediately deciding he wanted to make music that sounded "like that", Daniel formed his first band at the age of 15, and stepped up to the microphone for the first time.
Four years later, Daniel's rock music career was almost de-railed altogether when weeks and months of untrained rock singing in poor quality rehearsal rooms using lo-fi equipment took their toll on his voice. On seeking advice from an Ear, Nose & Throat consultant, Daniel was diagnosed with a distorted larynx, and was ordered to stop singing for the foreseeable future. Six months of speech therapy followed, and then in an unfaltering display of persistence, Daniel embarked on 4 years of singing lessons.
On returning to his position centre stage, Daniel then spent several years perfecting his craft with a number of different bands, the most notable being heavy metal outfit "Full Tilt", and blues/rock band "Easy". In 2003, Daniel opted to return to his original plan of forming his own band, where he could write exactly the type of melodic stadium rock he wanted to perform. And so, "Trigger" was formed with wife Sally Trigger, plus teenage guitarist Dave D'Andrade.
Trigger went from strength to strength, with Daniel's brand of melodic rock and the showmanship of the band creating a buzz around the Midlands. The band had a number of successes, including recording 4 albums (2 of which were reviewed in Classic Rock magazine), selling out the 300-capacity Bromsgrove Artrix Theatre, having a song used in a film, having songs played on regional, national and international radio, and performing at the town fireworks display to an audience of 22,000. In 2005, Daniel also won "Best Singer/Songwriter" at the Midlands Guitar Hero competition.
Trigger finally closed it's doors in 2011, following an extensive and exhausting gigging schedule for many years. By this time, Daniel was already 1 year into recording his new solo album "Infinite Persistence", which also features performances from Trigger musicians past and present. Note that Dave D'Andrade also plays guitar on "Infinite Persistence" - his work with Trigger has helped propel his music career, where he is now an esteemed session guitarist!
At the time of writing, Infinite Persistence has received much acclaim from internet rock DJs around the world, and Daniel looks forward to promoting what he considers to be his finest work for some time to come.
Roll on chapter 2...
"The music captures my attention fully with its overtly polished set of songs that wouldn't look out of place on albums by the likes of Gotthard, Bonfire and Wig Wam. Vocalist Dan Trigger is a cross between Steve Lee (Gotthard) and Claus Lessman (Bonfire) and the songs are a real step up from previous outings. In the hands of a world class producer, this band could be one of the UK's brightest prospects for many a year. They've certainly got the songs. Here's what Dan Trigger had to say recently…." - Rob Evans, Powerplay
