On 3rd November 2014, AIS Records and City Canyons Productions release “Dark Daddy,” the new single from ‘The Peter Ulrich Collaboration’, the track is a follow-up to last year’s acclaimed debut album ‘The Painted Caravan’. This is a quite stunning release on just about every level and is fully deserving of today’s GIGsoup Track of the Day accolade.
On the new single, ‘The Peter Ulrich Collaboration’ is joined by American singer and harpist Erin Hill, a Billboard chart-topper in her own right who has also worked with artists as diverse as Kanye West and Sinead O’Connor. ‘The Painted Caravan’ was originally a concept developed by Ulrich and Trebor ‘Big T’ Lloyd – the CEO of City Canyons Productions. The Peter Ulrich Collaboration’s original principal contributors were Peter Ulrich, Trebor Lloyd, David Steele, Anne Husick and Sara Wendt (formerly of cult band, Homer Erotic), who are now joined by Erin.
