Well I listened to O Holy Nite and....OK now, again we have a brilliantly toned and melodic tune from young Mr Chappell here. And I say toned, because the basstone on this track. When laid thick, was actually shaking objects secured to my walls. That in itself was pretty surprising enough. What I'm not surprised about. Is how really good this new tune [12.11.2009.] from Daniel is. This new take on another Christmas Classic. Is so powerfully tuned and melodic in it's essence. I can imagine what a crowd pleaser this would be. In a theatre,opera house or indeed any sort of festive venue. So I would have to say. This is definitely up there. With any of Daniel's special sack of Christmas goodies. And a much better version. Than any old whiny pop diva could ever muster. Step aside Ms Fairy, the new King of The Christmas Tree is here.
I just started listening to the first 20 seconds of What Child Is This on my computer speakers, and I said to myself "nuh-uh... this song DEMANDS headphones". And so I restarted the song with headphones on and found your cover song to be quite... beautiful. I loved it. What Child is This is probably the most beautiful Christmas song, and you've done a very excellent take on it. There aren't too many good versions of this song out there, but even still I can say that it would be hard to find a better version. I will most definitely be promoting this song along with my own Christmas covers this winter! -Ian
So Daniel, listened to some of your work and if the goal is soundtrack work... what are some of the movies you would see this in? The music always serves the picture (and/ or the producers and the director). I would suggest ripping some of our favorite DVDs and scoring them for the practice. See my video section for examples of how I point producers to 'see and hear' my work.
