Tribute to Soul and Motown
Dayton is passionate about music. Not only does he sing, but he plays piano, keyboard, guitar and drums – although his voice is his instrument of choice. Singing in Church at a very early age, he immediately loved the way music made him feel, how it helped to lift others and encourage the ‘feel good’ factor. Listening to music across varied genres, and taking little bits from each to implement into his own performances, making them individual and unique. Dayton’s heroes include John Legend and Stevie Wonder, along with other Motown Legends, and his show is a tribute to Soul and Motown.
Early in his career, Dayton entered a National ‘Star Search’ competition, and was lucky enough to make the final 5. This helped greatly with his confidence performing publicly… He had been well and truly ‘bitten by the bug’ and knew that the music world was where he belonged! This prompted him to enter BBC 1’s ‘The Voice’ when the 2nd series was launched. He made it to the callback stage, just a small step away from the televised, blind auditions!
Soulful, silky, smooth sounds are what is what Dayton is best suited to, but he also enjoys performing lively music with a party vibe! Whether his music makes people want to get up and dance, or sit back and listen, Dayton’s intention is to ensure that everyone in the audience has a great time and wants to hear more.
