Brought up in Runcorn, Ian Daniels earnt his stripes as singer/songwriter in cult indie bands Perelachaise and GuruSales. Pere-lachaise were once described as "Pink floyd melodrama fused with bluesy doors style explosions,.."the best (next big) thing ive seen happen in british music in 20 years" and with sonyEMI among their suiters big things were expected.

Brought up in Runcorn, Ian Daniels earnt his stripes as singer/songwriter in cult indie bands Perelachaise and GuruSales. Pere-lachaise were once described as "Pink floyd melodrama fused with bluesy doors style explosions,.."the best (next big) thing ive seen happen in british music in 20 years" and with sonyEMI among their suiters big things were expected. In 2006 they hit a wall without really reaching their full potential, but although no album ever saw the light of day the PL style and songs were considered vastly superior to what followed after the implosion and was a monkey that Daniels in particular struggled to shake off his back. The remaining PL members(two guitarists down) regrouped and became Guru sales. After 3 years of trauma and personal battles they finally done it! and the Guru Sales Album " you cant look back forever " (available on i-tunes) was lauded as "one of the most honest and real (all be it under-achieving) Lps in modern times." A lot of this was due to Daniels and the bands relaxed attitude to actually putting pen to paper on record contracts or even returning their calls in their efforts to actually make an album they were proud of and captured their last few years of personal hell.

An attitude which led to a distinct lack of promotion, though their live performances left both their critics and their peers drooling. Eventually the powers that be lost patience with the band who were starting to forge a reputation as being slightly unruly. In january 2009 the week after xfm handed them band of the week status, the guru's split. Daniels has since cleansed his body and mind and uprooted to london, (ironic considering the efforts labels made unsuccesfully to get the bands to do this) and has been working with some of britains most loved indie names.

His new Project Daniels & the Goldseal has seen comparisons with cohen through to buckley. And producer Nigel Clarke (dodgy) holds his songwriting abilities in the highest regard. And if debut offering "she liked eating nectarines" is anything to go by then this "quirky yet mournful" troubadours debut LP " A minor Love " has the makings of something really special.
