daisychaindaze is the musical menagerie of John Cartwright: musician, songwriter, guitarist, composer, sound designer and creator, and lyricist.
From ball-bustin' rock and roll and commercial melodies to sprinklings of classically-inspired compositions.
A self-taught musician and songwriter, so no templating of songs or programmed set formulae here. Just great songs with potential to appeal to the popular niche.
A collection of commercial and eclectic pieces for film, themes, moods, classical themes, ads and brand idents plus other soundbites. Challenge me to come up with something original for you.
Let's get together for a jam or musical exchange of ideas! If you're a fellow or aspiring musician, young, old or middling, any genre, I'm all ears and have ample stocks of fresh coffee and tea.
My first love was all things played on guitar - from classical guitarist, John Williams to eclectic guitarist, John McLaughlin, and the unpredictability of Frank Zappa. I then became seduced by Schostakovitch, Karen Carpenter’s Voice, Rage Against The Machine, Bring Me The Horizon, Jeff Buckley, Soft Machine and early psychedelia.
I want to take the listener on a personal journey. Make the hairs on the back of their neck stand up...I want to pierce the soul...
As always, I would love to get some honest feedback.
