Daniel Charles Cook - ‘Down But Not Out’

A few years ago, we were lucky enough to stumble upon Daniel Charles Cook, a rising singer and songwriter from Brighton, UK. A folk musician at heart, but with a style that artfully emphasised good melodies and heartfelt lyrics, Daniel’s music took form during the global lockdowns, and since then, he’s continued to impress and entertain.

While best known for his 2021 album ‘Karma Coming’, which contained a brilliant string of impressive singles, Daniel is back today with a shining new single titled ‘Down But Not Out’. Available now on all major platforms, the new single is another rustic and stripped back release from Daniel, focusing heavily on his lyrics, vocals, and a solitary acoustic guitar to draw you in and cast a wonderful spell.

Built with a subtle country twang, ‘Down But Not Out’ makes its mark through a simple, melodic arrangement, capturing a timeless folk edge that Daniel weaves around his vocals. Raw and emotive, with no needless or bright-eyed production to hide behind, Daniel delivers lines like “sometimes life don’t turn out right” and a returning call of “don’t give it up” to ensure the track stays well within your consciousness.

Available now on all your favourite streaming services, and as part of our annual Spotify playlist, the new single is an empathetic release that shows Daniel at his most honest and relatable. You can stream it below now via Spotify.

An enduring and constantly evolving talent to watch out for, Daniel has never failed to draw out emotion or to weave a classic tale in his music, and with his new single, he’s continued to show just how far he can go with an acoustic guitar and a heartfelt message.

Tune in to the new single above and make sure you follow him on his social media pages below, so you never miss a new release.
