A fine Rock album with a contemporary edge.

Daniel Trigger is a singer based in The Midlands, England. He started his first band at 15 years old, but four years later after months of untrained singing in poor quality rehearsal rooms, he was diagnosed with a distorted larynx, and ordered to stop singing by a specialist. He endured six months of speech therapy, and then embarked on four years of singing lessons to enable himself to return to what he loved doing, and for that drive and determination alone he should be applauded.

Daniel spent several years with different bands like Full Tilt and Easy, performing in various styles, then in 2003 formed the band Trigger with his wife Sally and young guitarist Dave D’Andrade. Trigger would record four albums and develop a decent following around the Midlands, before disbanding in 2011, but by then Daniel was already someway into recording his first solo album, the aptly named ‘Infinite Persistence’.

Daniels’s voice has been compared to the likes of Claus Lessmann (Bonfire) and Steve Lee (Gotthard), and I can see the similarities with the former, but struggle with comparison to Steve Lee. The songs on this album have a strong Modern Rock influence that bring to mind Alter Bridge and Europe’s current output, but also hint towards the late Eighties melodic style. Aside from the very Bon Jovi sounding ‘Alone Tonight’ and the sparse ballad ‘Last Breath’ that closes the album, the tempo throughout the album is a little too similarly paced, and at fourteen tracks is possibly two or three songs too many, but nevertheless is a decent listen, and judging by the quality of Daniel’s voice, it seems like his vocal problems are a thing of the past.

Joining Daniel on this album on backing and the occasional lead vocal is Daniel’s wife Sally. Having your wife singing with you is fine if you’re James Christian, but with all due respect, Sally Trigger ain’t no Robin Beck. I’m not keen on the sound of Sally’s vocals and find them a distraction, but that’s just a personal opinion. Guitarist Dave D’Andradeis is also employed again, and puts in a sterling performance that occasionally threatens to overshadow the fact that this is actually a Daniel Trigger solo effort, begging the question why is this not just a regular Trigger album? That said this is a fine Rock album with a contemporary edge that will hopefully allow Daniel to continue to follow his dreams.
