Dan Campbell’s Storytelling Through Song Writing: ‘When I Face Into The Wind’

Dan Campbell delivers debut solo single ‘When I Face Into The Wind”.

Known most fluently from his work in The Wonder Years or Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties, Dan Campbell is known also as a lyrical mastermind. Finding perfection in storytelling through songwriting, the passion and persistence in Campbell’s lyrics effortlessly transport you into a parallel universe as he harmonizes. Clever, sincere, and utterly brilliant, his expertise lands in writing songs that translate life’s memorable moments into completely compelling choruses.

On the glorious day that was February 12th, Dan Campbell released his debut solo single. ‘When I Face Into The Wind’ has been in the works for weeks, and it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. Starting at the early days of quarantine, it’s one of the things we’re thankful to have come of it.

Dan Campbell – ‘When I Face Into The Wind’

Using the downtime between TWY, Aaron West, and delightful son Wyatt, he began writing songs for and about people. Taking time to learn about their lives, detail upon detail, and using his creative expertise to tell their stories in song. Finding attachment to one in particular, ‘When I Face Into The Wind’ unveil gracefully made its way to our ears.

“I got really attached,” Campbell explains of the story that inspired this song. “Two people fell in love, first in the summer on train bridge, and then in the winter in an abandoned schoolhouse, and finally at a place of their own with their daughter.”

‘When I Face Into The Wind’ features Ace Enders (a regular Campbell feature) on keys, Daniel Radin on bass and additional guitar, Kristine Kruta on cello, Maria Im on violin, Joe Junode on trumpet, and the voice of Robin Gazzara. A modern-day hero to many, the poise and pure passion in Dan Campbell’s voice is always prominent. What we’re left with is one hell of a debut.

The beginning of Dan’s solo adventure is promising and one we’re ready to trek through. Don’t you think so? Let us know! Comment down below or head over to Twitter @TheHoneyPOP. Not enough THP? Find us on Facebook and Instagram!
