Downtown Patriots

Downtown Patriots
Your Burden
Maisola Records
Release: 12 May 2023

Downtown Patriots was created in 2015 by Danny Watts, a multi-instrumentalist from Woodbridge, Suffolk.

Originally working with session drummer James Duncan on the two debut EPs “Love” and “Guiding Light” before settling with Ben Cochrane to create a 2-man band for live gigs. 

Danny and Ben began recording the debut Downtown Patriots album “Legacy” in 2015 but wasn’t released until 2019.  Once the album was recorded Ben relocated to Australia, so Danny began acoustifying the songs to play live as a solo act.

During lockdown in 2020, Danny began writing and recording the follow up to Legacy – Dance Out of The Dark.  With a more nuanced sound from the previous heavier offering, this new album combines Danny’s love for 90s grunge and 80s retro synths. 

Musical influences:

Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, Twenty One Pilots, Jeff Buckley, Beach Boys, Van Halen, Toto, Stone Temple Pilots, Brandi Carlile (to name a few!)

In his own words:

I am Downtown Patriots!  Mild mannered businessman by day, rock and roller by night!
