Dan Boyle 23


Eastbourne UK   Feb 2010


Artist Bio

Influences:   Bands

Major Danby are Dan Boyle & Karl Stanford.

2017, back again. Looked touch and go for a while there but it's back.
Can't wait to start...

Edit: For those of you that don't know, Karl and I are a writing partnership under the band name, 'Major Danby'. We write both separately and together so it makes writing 14 songs so much easier as there is two of us. Couple that with the fact that Karl is off long term sick at the moment and I have have very little else to do other write and record music at the moment, we are going to try and aim for 28 tracks this year.
That way, we can pick the best 14 for the album.

(The hearts signify likely album candidates as they are the most produced and complete).

    Hey, thanks for commenting on Middle of the Bed. I'm wary of long songs myself, but didn't see the time pass with this one 😀 Will definitely consider shortening it! Thanks for taking the time 😀

  • @leepat  2 weeks

    no stress!
    no idea about the Magic numbers, was just a coincidental remark.
    we appreciate your comments too!

  • @hoppiern  2 weeks

    Thanks so much for listening to my songs and your kind comments. Means a lot, since I am a fan of you and your band - I will be checking out what you have on iTunes!

  • @klaus  3 weeks

    Thanks Major for your awfully nice comments on Read My Hips. 😀

  • @highmountain 3 weeks

    Hello and thank you for the comment! I hope the both of you will be well soon.

  • @owl  3 weeks

    Glad to hear you're doing fine and it's just a temporary setback!! Feel better soon!

  • @ryako  3 weeks

    Hey, thanks for the comment on White Hats, Black Hats. That was really nice of you!

  • @tamsnumber4  3 weeks

    Thanks for visiting my song "Reflection"!

  • @nine  3 weeks

    Thank you for your kind words on our Morning Song! Everytime @leepat is involved, we get a *Beatles* badge attached. Which is an honour for me.

  • @ajna1960  3 weeks

    So sorry to hear that Karl is in hospital and so unwell 😞 Please tell him he is missed here at FAWM 😀

  • @kovbleu  3 weeks

    Oh man, you just made my day with the Gram and EmmyLou reference. One of my favs to sing is Grievous Angel. I think I've sang that with 3 or 4 different friends consistently over the years by many a campfire or stage. Thanks so much for the listen. I so appreciate it! That was a really fun collab. 😀

    Glad I twisted your melon man 😉. I will be back on listening you guys Asap. Am in the middle of creative juice flow whilst praying for wifi 😩

  • @dutch1967 4 weeks

    Not my finest hour, I admit, but had to just write it away. Title was supposed to spark something completely different and perhaps more serious.
    I expect your comment to be the mildest I will get for this. So, thanks for stopping by and commenting on Don't Knock It

  • @dutch1967 4 weeks

    Hey thanks for stopping by and commenting on Outside Looking In. Appreciate that. I'll replace this demo with a better recording once the lyrics have stopped jerking me around. usually after I record a song for the first time and listen back I will have some minor changes for it after a couple hours. This song is no different. Nothing earthshattering. A word here or there, timing, that kinda stuff.

  • @boyatheart  4 weeks

    Thanks for the comment on my latest song!

  • @karlsburg25  4 weeks

    Cheers for the comments guys. I am having a listening session while streaming is allowed for the next half hour so will get a listen of some more stuff

  • @davewermers  4 weeks

    Thanks for the comments on my songs, I will check out Heartworm Highway.

  • @tamsnumber4  4 weeks

    Thank you for your kind comments on my song "Gloria"

  • @johnhudome  4 weeks

    Dan, Congrats on getting past "14." And HUGE "thank you" for all your kind words regarding my sings. I intend to listen to more of yours over the next week. Cheers

  • @repsurepa 4 weeks

    So nice to hear! Thank you.
    yup, it's a guitar. My recording devices just aren't that good, so whenever I record an acoustic guitar, it doesn't really sound like a guitar. And about the lyrics + dynamics, I would've perhaps lifted the dynamics a bit in a few phrases, but not significantly. I didn't want the vocals to become too "soul mama" sounding, so that it'd still sound like 100% me. So yup, it was a rather concious result.

  • @repsurepa 4 weeks

    Thanks for your comments!
    Yup, my piano just somehow decided to be in the lead role in my first fawm this year.. However, I just now posted a new song, so take a listen if you want!

  • @nancihobson1  4 weeks

    thanks so much for your comment on my 'wine song'. I'm in a bit of a funk, stuck in the middle of FAWM, so to speak, and your comment inspired me to pick up the guitar and write again. Thank you!!!!

  • @bhaile  4 weeks

    Hey Dan & Karl,
    Thanks for being such kind and encouraging sweet hearts. I'm curious to know more about what's going on with Karl so if he feels like sharing, please tell him he can find me on Facebook or feel free to email me brandihaile@icloud.com.
    I remember you from last year and am enjoying what you're doing again this year. Thanks for being here!

  • @thebschip 4 weeks

    Wow, thanks for listening to my second tune, too!!

  • @thebschip 4 weeks

    Thanks for listening to my first tune! Sorry it's been so long before saying thanks. 😀 I look forward to hearing your tunes! (And congrats on already finishing!)

  • @owl  4 weeks

    Earthworms have five hearts? I didn't know that. If you had chosen Chanel #5, you could have met the Week 3 Smell challenge with it 😉

  • @owl  4 weeks

    "Senses Working Overtime" --XTC song, pop perfection! I assumed that was a deliberate reference.

  • @wickedmessenger1  5 weeks

    Thank you so much for your effusive praise of my songs. It means a lot to me and at the same time I don't feel like I deserve it. Does that make sense?

  • @yam655  5 weeks

    Congratulations on hitting Century Club! 😀

  • @faceofeinstein  5 weeks

    Hey man, thanks for all the kind words on my output this year. I really appreciate the feedback.

  • @lazykat  5 weeks

    Thanks for stopping by!
    Happy fawming 😀

  • @repsurepa 5 weeks

    Yay, thanks for the support! I'm here again 😀 though only with one song now (an instrumental one!), but I'll catch on from the second half of the month, cause I have a super big project with school on the 14th.

  • @arthurrossi 5 weeks

    I would like to thank you very much for your beautiful comment! 😀

  • @lieke 6 weeks

    Thanks for the comment on my cat-song. Glad it made you smile.

  • @jacobeverettwallace  6 weeks

    Thanks for the comment on Those People...yeah, breaking one's voice is a very fine line. But glad you liked it.

    To be honest I only have seen the first 1-2 episodes. It was interesting, but apparently not quite amazing enough to rise to the top of my also ever growing to-watch list. The era depiction was pretty cool and the characters seemed interesting. Heard it kinda went all soapy but don't know for sure.

  • @lieke 6 weeks

    Omg, you're on a roll! Im going to take some time to listen soon...
    But I wanted to thank you for getting me motivated. It was a bit of a struggle, and I'm exhausted now, but my first one is up. Thanks again!

  • @owl  6 weeks

    Thanks for the kind words! btw, the "bracelets" sound in multiple recordings is my cat getting up in my business while I'm playing--her tags jingle when she jumps up and tries to get attention.

  • @tamsnumber4  6 weeks

    Thanks for listening to my song "Underneath The Tree", I appreciate it.

  • @klaus  6 weeks

    Thank you for your concise and praising remark on Do You Wanna Rock ( Live! ). 😀

  • @ryako  6 weeks

    Thanks for the comment! It is very much appreciated.

  • @karlsburg25  6 weeks

    Thanks so much for the comments guys. Means a great deal to me, especially as one of you is a fellow KARL!! ha ha

  • @cjz87 6 weeks

    Thanks for your nice comment. 6 songs already? You won't have a problem reaching the finish line!

  • @oddbod  6 weeks

    Cheers for the comment. Maybe I'll take you up on the vocals offer

  • @lieke 6 weeks

    Hi Dan & Karl, for now just listening in, maybe later make some music myself. But hey, you're doing a good job, 3 already!

  • @defaultdave  6 weeks

    No worries, I am sure Mr. Young loves a good blow and suck. 😉
    Listening to your songs, good stuff from what I am hearing first
