MARK DALY Releases Official Music Video for Single “I WANNA BE MORE”

Mark Daly has released the music video for his single, “I Wanna Be More.” The infectious song is the debut track from Daly’s upcoming album Devil’s Arms - due for release this spring via One Opportunity Records – and was a crowd favorite on his recent tour as direct support for the rock supergroup Mr. Big. The video was directed by Tom Flynn.

"In the 'I Wanna Be More' video we wanted to capture the high energy we bring to this song when we play it live. We shot the video on Long Island, New York. It was directed by the incredibly talented Tom Flynn. Tom translated our energy to video perfectly. When you combine a big empty room with a full-band set-up, a couple of beers, a smoke machine, and a projector with some cool effects, you get the perfect performance music video. We can't wait for everyone to see the results!" says Daly of the video.

He continues, ’I Wanna Be More’ is an incredibly important song to me, and its release comes at the perfect time. My songwriting has matured a lot over the last few years - I’ve tapped into a much more honest approach, I’m writing from the heart, and I think the raw emotion that so many people can relate to is even more pronounced. This is the first song we’re releasing that was recorded with Brian Virtue, and it takes everything we’ve done before to the next level. To be able to preview it on the road with Mr. Big was a remarkable experience, and being able to release it to the world is even more surreal. I couldn’t be prouder of this song, and everything it represents.”

Devil’s Arms is produced by Brian Virtue, best known for his work with Audioslave, Jane’s Addiction, 30 Seconds to Mars, and Deftones, and includes a duet with Dead Sara frontwoman Emily Armstrong.

Devil’s Arms is the follow-up to the maxi-single Drop Dead, which came on the heels of his debut solo EP Nothing to Lose. Daly’s music is gritty, raw and energetic. His post-grunge and classic rock influences combine to create his dynamic signature modern-rock sound.

Mark Daly launched a three-week U.S. tour in January as direct support of Mr. Big. The Irish rocker supported the band throughout the Midwest and Northeast, while also headlining his own shows, including a marquee performance on February 8, at the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY.

Hailing from Cork, Ireland, Daly is no newcomer to American soil, having completed numerous domestic tours with heavyweights including Candlebox, Queensrÿche, and Queensrÿche’s former frontman, Geoff Tate. His current run kicked off Thursday, January 25, with a headlining show at Belle and the Bear, in Cincinnati, OH, and is highlighted by his West Point show, and a New York City performance with Mr. Big on February 6 at Sony Hall.

"As a rock musician from Ireland, it feels surreal to me to be on another incredible tour in the USA,” says Daly. “It blows my mind that I am not only the special guest of a band I grew up listening to – Mr. Big – but we also have our own headline shows in America for the first time. This really is a dream come true.”

Mark was first discovered while performing in his band The Voodoos in Spain. During one of their shows, music manager Brian Message (Radiohead, Nick Cave) was in the crowd and requested that Mark play some original songs. Brian decided to bring the band to London to record their first EP. It was in this defining moment that Mark decided to become a full-time musician and never looked back.

One early highlight in Mark’s career was performing at the MTV EMA Awards with The Voodoos after beating out 10,000+ bands from Europe for the slot. From there, Mark and the band began to tour throughout Europe and the USA. Mark’s first venture as a solo artist hit N0. 1 on the Scottish New Music Charts. Inspired by his son, Noah, the track “Your World” was written for an autism awareness charity.

“I absolutely love everything about being on the road – meeting so many incredible people each night, getting lost in the music on stage. It’s pure magic,” says Daly.
