Today we welcome a new artist to our roster, Dan Stock. A talented songwriter with a confident swagger, here we have the first track ‘Baby Valentino’ from his forthcoming EP.

A young man from Milton Keynes, Stock talks about this emotionally charged track:

“Baby Valentino is a love story set in a city centre at night. It’s a result of countless nights out in Milton Keynes looked at through my romantic imagination. I love writing lyrics that are about mundane, everyday situations but have a bit of magic thrown in. I guess that comes from my obsession with writers like Jarvis Cocker, I’ve always loved his way of thinking that “Nobody needs to know where reality ends and wishful-thinking takes over.” Hearing him say that really changed the way I approached writing lyrics.”


The track is accompanied by an appropriately stark, stripped back and beautifully shot video directed by acclaimed BAFTA winning director Kieran Evans (Kelly + Victor, the Manic Street Preachers documentary ,Culture, Alienation, Boredom and Despair and Dexys: Nowhere Is Home).


Having played local shows and supported The Orielles at last years sold out show at The Lexington, he’s making an appearance at this year’s annual Heavenly Weekender in Hebden Bridge & playing this years hottest new music festivals:
