I asked him, why so long & why now?
Dax: "Releasing a body of work (songs) has always been a dream of mine, I've written many songs for film and television but none really for myself. Only Human is the first of many songs to come. This is a personal labor of love project that finally found its way out of my system and into the world. "
And who inspires him? well, it turns out a very surprising mixed bag, from his dad's love of classic rock, to his own curiosities in reggae and jazz and the likes of Sam Cook and Otis Redding.
I have to say, when I heard Dax's vocal I was immediately transported back to Old school soul, Al green, The Chi-lites, Donny Hathaway, and The Stylistics among others; everything from production to song structure more than pays homage and yet it doesn't sound out of place in 2019, and that's the mark of a great artist who has honed their craft, knows exactly who they are, where they are going, and delivers with style.
While he admittedly writes across many genres there is no mistaken that vocal and you can expect to hear more from this Soulster very soon. Having recorded his debut E.P only Human with Alabama Shakes producer Andrija Tokic in East Nashville, once back in L.A he hooked up with award winning Multi Platinum Producer/Mixer/Engineer Jason Schweitzer, responsible for twiddling the knobs on tracks such as: Won't back down by Eminem ft Pink, Stand Up For Coloured Girls (Soundtrack) Macy Gray, to John Legends forthcoming album and a whole mightily impressive list of other tracks and artists .
