Artist Info

One of Manchester’s finest, Daniel Hartley is the roots reggae Artist Formerly Known As, Don Hartley who made his name as a roots reggae dub artist alongside Manchester's own Nucleus Roots being responsible for hits like Run Come Quick, Deep Roots, Irie Meditation and Step It Up Rasta as well as more recently State Of Mind.

On a spiritual journey and mystical transformation of self, Daniel is emergent from the lions’ den of self doubt with renewed boldness to preach the Gospel message of hope,and to shine the light of love on the land of shadows and darkness. With added spiritual discernment and strong musical accompaniment this reggae revival will audiences through soul stirring redefinitions and unique articulations.

However, notwithstanding his main emphasis on original and mostly spiritual songs, Daniel inevitably performs covers from among the greats of reggae, such as, Ken Boothe, Nicky Thomas, Desmond Dekker, Bob Marley, The Heptones and more. He feels this is in keeping with paying tribute to the founders of the great genre of which he is one of the grateful inheritors.
