Daniel Shaw Implores Us With ‘Don’t Leave Me Now’

Still only twenty years old, Melbourne Australia artist Daniel Shaw has been performing longer than than many artists twice his age. Starting at the age of 8 he made a name for himself with his keyboard, performing as a street artist, where he cultivated a loyal fanbase. He released his debut album, ‘LOVE’ in 2011, and he competed in the World Championships Of Performing Arts with his song, ‘Hey Little Brother’, gaining silver in five categories.

Daniel’s has been making a name for himself by way of playing open-air concerts, radio show performances, and other events. His latest song, ‘Don’t Leave Me Now’, comes from his debut EP, ‘Cross The Line’, which follows on from his second album, ‘It’s You’, which was released last year.

The song comes with a music video which opens with Daniel’s image reflected in the water of a public swimming pool, and we’re overcome with a deep feeling of loneliness. Daniel and his famous red keyboard are shown, as he reflects on his lost love. He’s striving to save himself from his ever isolating thoughts. He works his way through his emotions, while at the same time expressing his considerable musical talent. Eventually he accepts it’s all over, and the video closes with Daniel at the shallow end of the pool. His love is gone, and he’s left alone.
