Meet the Exhibitors - Dayyani Square
The band is called Dayyani Square. We formed about 18 months ago and we have spent the time since putting together an ever expanding selection of original material, some of which we are about to record as our first studio album.
What do you do?
We are all creative people who love great music. We are lucky enough to be a prolific song writing band and we have developed a very strong sense of our musical direction and have a definite sound of our own. We are always well received wherever we play and we are firm believers in focusing on the listeners experience rather than the image with which the music is presented.
What's the most exciting thing you've done recently?
We recently played an excellent gig at a record label launch and supported a band that was launching their new album at the event. It was an amazing night with a great crowd and venue. We are now working with this record label. Also in the previous few months we have played live and been interviewed on local radio stations and recently our singer/guitarist had two tracks played on BBC Radio via their BBC introducing platform.
Why do you do it?
We play mainly because we are all music lovers. Individually we are reasonably normal guys working normal lives, so spending time writing and playing our music is a very important outlet for us all. Band members have creative interests outside of the music including graphics, design, film making and digital production. We do it all because we hope to offer up something interesting and thoughtful and also because we have a strong desire to create.
