WELCOME TO La Bodega QUARANTINE TALK, WHERE WE’VE HELD VARIOUS CONVERSATIONS WITH ARTIST’S & GROUPS FROM AROUND THE WORLD VIA ZOOM, EMAIL, SOCIAL MEDIA EVEN PLAIN OLD PHONE CONVERSATIONS.
SOMag: What is your Name? where you’re from and what first got you interested in the
BD: My name is Brian Dalton. I first got my interest in the entertainment industry from watching
my mother sing when I was growing up, then once I developed my own taste in
music I started imitating and following mostly rock bands.
SOMag?: Who and/or what inspires you to create?
BD: I get my inspiration from traveling mostly. I love going to places I’ve never been just to
experience something new and I’m very grateful for every new experience I’m able to have.
SOMag?: How would you describe your sound?
BD: My sound is mix between rock, pop, and synth wave.
SOMag?: What is your creative process like?
BD: Usually, it starts with just a melody created by either my producer or myself and then
through collaboration it’s built into an entire song.
SOMag?: What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?
BD: I’d love to collaborate with multiple artists really. Metallica, Yungblud and The Midnight are
a few that come to mind.
SOMag?: What is one message you would give to your supporters?
BD: That we’re in all of this together. The whole crazy journey. I appreciate them so much and if
they ever need a hand in picking themselves back up, I hope I can be there to provide that
SOMag?: What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?
BD: My most hidden ability is that I can travel through MOST walls. Granted I have to be
traveling at an extreme rate of speed and I’m almost always injured afterward, but I can
travel through most walls.
What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?
If I wasn’t pursuing the music dream, I’d probably be doing something that still involved
traveling. Like scuba diving or something in the medical field.
SOMag?: Who are some artists/people you admire and why?
BD: I’d have to say that I admire any artist/band that has made a career in music. You’re told
“no” so often in this business that it can take a really long time to get a “yes” from anyone,
and having an actual career requires A LOT of yeses. So to anyone who has put in the work
and stuck it out long enough to “make it”: You have my admiration and respect.
The best advice I’ve heard came from a movie: “Life’s not about how hard you can hit. It’sBrian Dalton When Asked What Is The Best Advice You’ve Been Given?
about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”
SOMag?: If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
BD: Payment for the artists. Whether it be the amount earned per stream (normally half a penny
or less) or the amount the crooks running most major labels take out of their artists earnings
before they actually pay them (normally 85% or more).
SOMag?: What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself in the next year?
BD: In the next year I’d like to be signed to a respectable and ethical indie label touring
worldwide. My PR team and I are working on that now.
SOMag?: What is your social media? How can people get in contact with you?
BD: You can find me at.
