Ever since she was a child Daisy Cools dreamt about making music and traveling the world to perform and learn about other countries. Inspired by her father playing music by Ray Davies’ band The Kinks ´All day and all of the night´(pun intended) her youth revolves almost entirely around music. At the tender age of thirteen she formed her first band. Whilst pursuing a musical career, Daisy finished school and joined university. Shortly after getting her master’s degree in Media & Journalism, Daisy was selected to join a songwriting course in Manchester by Ray Davies. This is when and where Daisy got to write many of the songs that ended up on her first album The Secrets We Keep.
The time to go travelling arrived. During her long stays in several cities across Europe Daisy wrote songs and performed. In search of the ultimate sense of freedom, Daisy shares her experiences in the cities through her songs and stories. The travels lead up to a series of EP’s: The Paris File, The Palermo File and Eternal Newcomer - The Lisbon File.
Between the travels, Daisy joined Jazz orientated band The Mirror Conspiracy and performed on their album Mosaic (nominated for an Edison) and shows. Noir band The Bullfight asked Daisy to be a part of their albums ‘La chasse’ and ‘Eggs and Marrowbone’ and invited Daisy to join their 2019 tour. End of 2022 Daisy can be heard on The Bullfights’ new project: ‘Some Divine Gift/spoken word songs’.
Living in both The Netherlands and Portugal Daisy has recently finished recording her new album in four language versions at Rocktown Studios, Rotterdam). The first single ‘First Aid Kit’, a personal anecdote about fears and phobias captured in a summery song has just come out, as well as its French and Portuguese versions. It's receiving fabulous reviews. The Italian version of the song will be out on July 22nd.
