Simon Daley Danica Hunter hits the jackpot on "When Will The Love Begin?", a track which features funky and edgy horn-driven production and is complimented by incredibly memorable lyrics! The remainder of her debut EP is a perfectly pleasant collection of tracks, although perhaps simply outshone by the EPs opener... 6/10! Favorite track: WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN?.

WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN? I've been living on rich mans' lane But I don't have a penny to my name Struggle through it 'til I see the light But I know that it's an endless fight I've been waiting for it to happen I've been waiting for it to change I've been looking for recognition But it never seems like enough And I need to know WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN? WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN? WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN? And I need to know WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN? When will the love, the love, the love, begin? I've been riding in the flash boy's car But the good life still feels too far I've been working hard every day But things just don't go my way I've been waiting for it to happen I've been waiting for it to change I've been looking for recognition But it never seems like enough And I need to know WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN? WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN? WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN?? And I need to know When will the love? I've been waiting for it to happen I've been waiting for it to change I've been looking for recognition But it never seems like enough And I need to know WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN? WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN? WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN? And I need to know WHEN WiLL THE LOVE BEGiN? When will the love, the love, the love, begin? I'm ready for this love to start I feel it in my soul and heart So tell me when will it be? I'm ready for this love to start I feel it in my soul and heart So tell me when will it be? I'm ready for this love to start I feel it in my soul and heart So tell me when will it be?

TATTOO I can't ring you every time I'm feeling weak But sometimes I miss you when we don't speak And when I see you with her It makes me want you more But don't you remember, I was the one you adored? Don't you remember, I was the one you adored? Don't you remember, I was the one you adored? TATTOO my name across your skin To remind you where I have been 'Cos you won't ever get nobody, quite like me No you won't ever get nobody, quite like me And now, he only loves you 'cos I'm not there Your heart breaks, you know he cares He only loves you 'cos I'm not there You know we can't breathe the same air Breathe the same air Breathe the same air Breathe the same air Tell me your secrets when she's not around But then you break my heart and drag it to the ground It's the way we've been for far too many years But I'm past the stage of when For you I'd shed a tear Yeah, I'm past the stage of when For you I'd shed a tear Past the stage of when For you I'd shed a tear TATTOO my name across your skin To remind you where I have been 'Cos you won't ever get nobody, quite like me No you won't ever get nobody quite like me The mistakes of past lovers Are written on my face But in this world we live in I don't look out of place The mistakes of past lovers Are written on my face But in this world we live in I don't look out of place We're not friends We're just strangers with memories We're not friends We're just strangers with memories TATTOO my name across your skin To remind you where I have been 'Cos you won't ever get nobody, quite like me No you won't ever get nobody, quite like me And now he only loves you 'cos I'm not there Your heart breaks, you know he cares He only loves you 'cos I'm not there You know we can't breathe the same air Breathe the same air Breathe the same air Breathe the same air

FALLiNG When I'm alone That's when the colours turn to grey When the night sky falls That's when the ghosts Come out to play I don't know where they come from And I don't know where they go But since you left my bed They're the only friends I know And now I'm FALLiNG And I'm calling But you won't answer me no more And now I'm FALLiNG And I'm calling But you won't answer me no more Now my heart's heavy like stone 'Cos you said that you would come home But you never did No, you never did No, you never did When the morning comes That's when my thoughts fly all around I want to do the same But my feet won't leave the ground I don't know where they come from And I don't know where they go But since you left my bed They're the only friends I know And now I'm FALLiNG And I'm calling But you won't answer me no more And now I'm FALLiNG And I'm calling But you won't answer me no more Now my heart's heavy like stone 'Cos you said that you would come home But you never did No, you never did No, you never did But I don't wanna I don't wanna I don't wanna Dance on my own (woah) I just wanna i just wanna Wait 'til you come home (woah) But I don't wanna I don't wanna I don't wanna Dance on my own (woah) I just wanna i just wanna Wait 'til you come home (woah) Now my heart's heavy like stone 'Cos you said that you would come home But you never did No, you never did No, you never did

VANiLLA SKY I can't think about you I got too many things to do No, I can't think about you Please don't think I'm being rude I can't think about you I got to walk in my own shoes 'Cos I know that if I do this There's no way that I can lose You're my VANiLLA SKY You might not be around But you felt so right to me And when tomorrow comes It will be like you're a dream I won't remember your name Only that you were 19 I can't think about you I got too many things to do No, I can't think about you Please don't think I'm being rude I can't think about you I got to walk in my own shoes 'Cos I know that if I do this There's no way that I can lose But it don't matter 'Cos I always dream too much Yes, I talk too much To people I don't know And it's the line across When I get memory loss And nobody wants somebody like that You're my shadow in the dark I can't see you face But I know we've got a spark And when the sun shines You'll be a forgotten thought Memories from last night Remember the feelings that we fought I can't think about you I got too many things to do No, I can't think about you Please don't think I'm being rude I can't think about you I got to walk in my own shoes 'Cos I know that if I do this There's no way that I can lose But it don't matter 'Cos I always dream too much Yes I talk too much To people I don't know And it's the line across When I get memory loss And nobody wants somebody like that 'Body like that Somebody like that Noone wants somebody like that 'Body like that Somebody like that Nobody wants somebody like that But it don't matter 'Cos I always dream too much Yes I talk too much To people I don't know And it's the line across When I get memory loss And nobody wants somebody like that It don't matter 'Cos I always dream too much Yes I talk too much To people I don't know And it's the line across When I get memory loss And nobody wants somebody like that

ANYWHERE You told me I could play with fire As long as I didn't step too close But I thought you felt for me What you didn't feel for most And this train could take me ANYWHERE 'Cos my hope is cold And this dream is gone Nothing to say Nothing to do So I'll just stare out my window with you Stare out my window with you Leave our problems in the dark And forget my heart Said I'm thinking of you But it's the last thing you do And this train could take me ANYWHERE 'Cos my hope is cold And this dream is gone Nothing to say Nothing to do So I'll just stare out my window with you Stare out my window with you And I could lie here forever But it won't make a difference to me and you And I could tell you I love you But it won't feel the way I change about you So don't tell me you love me Because this train could take me ANYWHERE 'Cos my hope is gone And this dream is gone Nothing to say Nothing to do So I'll just stare out my window with you Stare out my window With you Stare out my window With you Stare out my window With you

about

This is my debut EP, 'LiES & BUTTERFLiES'- it's all about transformation - the journey from pain to reward - from teenager to young adult - from aspiring artist to the real hard world of music. We are told lots of untruths in so many ways - and then we discover that we're very much alone in the world - our discovery is unique - this is a challenging part of our lives.

Butterflies represent transformation/change for me. I feel that I've started that journey. I love this sound that I've been working on, of soft hip hop, soul and pop with a little jazzy edge - trumpets, drums, organs, strings, violins - part pop but with an underlying retro feel - but more than anything I try to put myself into the vocals in a way that is true to me. As for the lyrics - they come straight from the heart and when I sing them I can get across that emotion because the passion behind the words is already there.

I've always enjoyed the mix and experimentation of modern music with a retro sound so there's a little Hollywood feel in some of the tracks which also inspired my photoshoot for this album. Combining the best of old and new.

Help me on my journey by valuing my work enough and PLEASE FEEL FREE TO MAKE A CONTRIBUTION to allow me to continue creating music and videos you will love, with your support!

credits

released June 22, 2014

I would like to thank my producers, MARRiK 'LAYDEN DEFT' SHEARER and DUBROCCA. I'd especially like to thank my manager of the past two years, DARiUS MALiK who I first met at BBC Introducing Masterclass at Abbey Road Studios. Finally, I want to thank all those who have believed in me.

This EP was made on a very small budget - more from blood, sweat and tears of my manager, my producers, and myself and those who had belief in me. I would also like to thank MY FAMiLY (especially my mum) who have unshakeable belief in me. Last, but not least, my FRiENDS/SUPPORTERS who have believed in me from the start.

I have been amazed by the number of people who have helped me along my path in an industry where they say only money talks. I have found kindness after kindness from all those who in the industry who helped me - and from far too many people to name. It is this belief from so many that has driven me forward, because without these people, this would be a much harder and more lonely journey.
