Singer / songwriter Daniel Wylie was born and brought up in Glasgow, Scotland. He spent time writing and performing in numerous local bands, before going solo and subsequently founding the group Cosmic Rough Riders as a showcase for his work. The self-released the albums Deliverance (1999) and Panorama (2000), both having been recorded in a community-funded recording studio located in Glasgow's notorious Castlemilk housing scheme. The albums received outstanding reviews in the popular music press, generating excitement around the independent music scene. The Cosmics were quickly snapped up Alan McGee’s Poptones label in early 2000. As writer and producer of the material on the debut album for the label Enjoy The Melodic Sunshine, Daniel gained recognition when it sold over 60,000 in the UK and went on to sell more another 100,000-plus copies world-wide.

It immediately caught the imagination of the press, citing one journalist to proclaim them "the best band on earth right now". It was also named in several 'end of year' type polls, most notably as one of Q magazine's “50 Albums of the Year”. Single releases in 2001 earned them increasing numbers of fans in the press and public alike, and ensured the band's growth through word-of-mouth. Their efforts paid off when the single "Revolution (In The Summertime?]" was released and went straight into the UK charts, scoring them their first top 40 hit and debut appearance on Top Of The Pops. This was immediately followed into the charts by "The Pain Inside", giving them back-to-back top 40 hit singles success.. In 2002, Wylie parted ways with the Cosmic Rough Riders as he began to feel that the project was no longer working for him in a creative capacity and took two years out to write new material before re-launching himself as a solo artist with 2004’s critically acclaimed Ramshackle Beauty, which went straight into the UK's Independent Top 20, prompting Mark Edwards of The Sunday Times, to compare it to “the best work of The Beatles, The Byrds and The Beach Boys - but with a contemporary edge”, and Postcards followed in 2005. During this same period, Daniel set up the Glasgow-based Neon Tetra Records label with David Wells.

“It's grown quickly - we've got seven artists already. It came out of me finding these people without record contracts, thinking, ‘These guys deserve to be heard’". Daniel’s latest album release is The High Cost of Happiness , a collection of instantly memorable tunes, beautiful harmonies and a sunny vibe that would not be out of place among the music which emanated from west coast America in the 1960s. He is already back in the studio, writing and recording songs for his next album. Read more on Last.fm.
