Travelling The World Of James Dalton

There's nothing like a little bit of pressure when writing a blog. I say this because this week's is about my fellow blogger here on Chorus and Verse, the fantastic JAMES DALTON (

I will start off by saying that it was truly a pleasure to sit down with this very talented singer/songwriter from Bay Head, NJ. His appearance on ROCK ON RADIO was not only entertaining, but very informative as well.

A multi-instrumentalist, DALTON brought his acoustic guitar as well as his harmonica. Influenced by Jerry Garcia, Van Morrison, and Pink Floyd, DALTON intertwined stories of his world travels along with live performances that reflected his said influences.

Possessing a severe wanderlust when it comes to performing, playing, and promoting his music, DALTON has literally "traveled the world" to play and perform. He told us stories of playing an Irish Pub in Shanghai, gigs in Edinburgh, Scotland, a ferry cruise in the Baltic Sea, as well as performances all across the U.S. and his upcoming mini-tour of Hamburg, Germany and the Czech Republic.

A tireless worker and player, DALTON is busy with something in some way, shape or form seemingly every minute of his day. Whether he's performing, writing music, a blog, or working at his favorite blues club in NYC, he is constantly creating.

His debut CD, "Butterflies and Passerbys," is a well-written collection of life experiences and heartfelt, soulful tunes.

DALTON's musicianship is surpassed only by his songwriting ability. On the air, we kicked off your introduction to this fine CD with a great track from it which is titled "House My Grandfather Built," a soulful tune which recalls memories of a past time, not only for DALTON but for anyone who listens to it. On "Butterflies and Passerbys" there are many such songs, as I listened to it recently, I almost felt transported to the Jersey Shore. DALTON's writing is descriptive and very insightful. His words take you on a ride with twists and turns, yet are direct and to the point.

A very engaging personality on, as well as off, the air DALTON is one of music's good guys. Always willing to discuss his music and/or adventures, he's approachable and enjoys interaction with his fan base and his audiences.

To hear samples of JAMES DALTON's music, or to see his upcoming gig schedule, go to his aforementioned site, or "Butterflies and Passerbys" is available on all of the usual outlets as well as at all of his shows. Trust me on this one, you won't be disappointed.

This Sunday, April 18, 10pm EST, my guests are Harrisburg, PA southern rockers DEEZLE CHURCH. They're traveling a good distance to appear, so give them a call at (609) 447-0236 or e-mail us LIVE on air at

Turn on... tune in... and... ROCK ON!
