Introducing Dale Von Minaker, a prolific songwriter from Kidderminster. He sings, he plays guitar and he plays piano.
He was recently a semi-finalist in the youbloom.com international song writing contest where his work was judged and critiqued by Sir Bob Geldof and ledgendary Producer Rupert Hine. Sadly he missed out on the grand final - booo!
However, undaunted by this, he threw all his efforts in working with "The Dale Von Minaker Band" with his immensely talented chums Gaz Gibbons on bass and Steve Smith on drums. They have just recorded an 11 track album with Producer Gavin Monaghan who has worked with Editors, Ocean Colour Scene and many others. –hooray!
The album is due for release on their own label “Horsefair Records” on 26th July 2012 with a launch party at the Cock & Magpie, Bewdley. Prior to this they will have two singles available for download. The first single “This Summer” is pending release with iTunes and the website will be updated once it is available. A second yet unanounced single will be available for download on 14th July 2012.
The aim for this initial project….. To create possibly the last of the greatest rock albums ever…… have we achieved this quest? Have we arrived? Ladies and gentlemen, You Are Here!!
