Dan Raza “Pay Day” – Listen

In the wake of the Iraq war, Neil Young featured a stirring song called ‘Every Little Dog’ on his ‘Living With War’ website.  The track was by Indian / British (London based) singer-songwriter Dan Raza, whose debut album in 2012, alongside dates with Joan Armatrading, Badly Drawn Boy, Cara Dillon, Bellowhead, Mary Gauthier and Slaid Cleaves, cemented his place in the UK folk and roots scene and led BBC documentary maker, James Ashley Smith, to create ‘Can’t Go Back’, a short feature film about Raza’s sacrifices and struggles for his musical dreams. Here’s a track from his new self-titled album due out July 7th, a straight up gutsy folk-rock belter.
