Chain, released 2008.

An inspired collection of thundering instrumental numbers interspersed with raw unaccompanied ballads.



Daniel Payne is from Cow Head, a small fishing community on the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland, an area with a rich history of traditional music. Growing up in a musical family exposed him to the powerful rhythms and heartfelt songs that make up this unique music. Unfortunately, by the time Daniel was in his teens, much of this musical culture had disappeared. The chain of tradition had been broken. Since then, Daniel has devoted himself to seeking out the older players and singers, collecting their music and performing it in a style that is at once authentic and innovative. Through the revitalization of these songs, Daniel hopes to do his part to effect a renaissance of musical culture on the island. He has performed this music literally around the world, to places as far away as Japan and Australia, all the while maintaining a strong connection to his musical roots.
