ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The musical movement thru 'Follow the Sun' takes the listener on a journey around the world. The ecclectic feel that permeates the album showcases what is so moving about native music from around the world. However it doesn't leave out the lover of modern music. With the Native American flute as the principle voice on the album, Daniel Watts weaves driving rock guitar (Way of the People) with the African Kalimba and Djembe ( Sandwalker, Fire Drum Circle) to add interest and layers to create fullness throughout these as well as other songs. If a listener is in the mood for some funkiness, the bass lines in 'Courage Road', 'United' and 'A New Day' will not disappoint. As Watts became more aware of combinations throughout the recording process the sound expanded through the world from Australia (Didgeridoo) to India (Sitar) and down to the Andes Mountains with a Pan Flute. As the guitar was the original instrument for Daniel he uses it liberally throughout the whole album to bring the stories home to the modern world. Although not a vocal CD, there are tastes of it scattered around that were provided by his engineer Michael Gibbons, his brother Guy Gibbons and Daniel's wife SaraLynn Watts. Daniel's contribution vocally, although minor, was fun for him and added an ancient feel to the beginning of 'Way of the People'. Not to leave out one of the funnest instruments ever, Watts incorporated the Ukulele into 5 different pieces to bring a more lighthearted feel to the whole album. For synth junkies, there are plenty of sound-effects to go around to create texture and add layering. Ethno fusion is the best way to describe the multi-cultural, time travelling series of songs that make up Daniel Watts' debut album, 'Follow The Sun'.
