The Most Famous Band You've Never Heard Of!
Once a footnote to the 1980's guitar pop scene, Daniel Takes A Train hit the national headlines in 2018 after being discovered, 30 years after splitting up, by German indie label Firestation Records. They haven't looked back since their first album, Style, Charm & Commotion was released on vinyl and CD format, and sell out live shows and guest appearances in the media quickly followed. Their first brand new material in three decades was released in 2019 and a follow up album is on the way.

The Story So Far... Named after a Hungarian art-house movie, Daniel Takes A Train was originally formed in London by song-writing duo Paul (vocals) and Dan (guitar). The band were regulars on the West End club scene (Ronnie Scott’s, Le Beat Route, The Limelight, The Astoria, Empire Ballroom etc) and even gate-crashed the 1987 Brit Awards armed with demo tapes in order to get a record deal. Renewed interest in their 'lost' promo video, shot just before the band broke up, led the eventual release of their old material in 2018, and the band reformed. Over the years, they have crossed genres as diverse as synth pop, jazz/funk, jangle and indie rock but always with an eye on creating that perfect pop moment.
