'Danish Daycare' is the solo project by Daniel Jonsson from Malmo, who has achieved quite a lot during his musical career besides being a solo performer.
Between 2001-2005 Daniel played Keyboards for 'Eyedrop', a group originating from Malmo. In 2002 the first album "You And Me Vs. The Machine" was released and Eyedrop made themselves quite well known in southern Sweden. Unfortunately the band split up in 2005 and the members drifted apart. At that time Daniel already had some new ideas, taking place in a small recording studio in his apartment in Malmo. The solo project Danish Daycare was born.
Some 3-4 songs were recorded before Daniel joined yet another band from Malmo: Emerald Park - now as guitarist and keyboarder. Already during the work with Emerald Park, Daniel worked parallel on the record of his own songs, in all simplicity and by small means in his apartment studio, which now was named Danish Daycare Studio.
Danish Daycare produced more and more songs, eventually 10 tracks on the debut album were recorded and contracted to Smaragd Records.
afmusic, already working with Emerald Park, started cooperating with Danish Daycare and on September 9, 2009, the first single "A Purpose To My Sins" will be released on this german netlabel. The ten different songs on Danish Daycare's "A Story Of Hurt" describe the inner feelings of a 34 year old Malmo citizen; love and betrayal, tenderness and pain, friendship and reflections upon life in general.
Amongst many others, influences from The Cure, New Order, Depeche Mode and Doves - which all played an important role in Daniels musical life time - can clearly be heard. In 2008 Emerald Park's album "For Tomorrow" was released, but in 2009 Daniel put all his energy and soul to complete the Danish Daycare debut album.
