With a hi-energy sound and a big tenor vocal, Mars Daniel hits a style of guitar-backed power-pop that might remind you a bit of Lennie Kravitz: there is a certain facility with riff-making, and chord changes, that along with the soaring lead vocal makes for genuine rock and roll.

It’s a song about attraction, and it feels real. With his new single The Kiss You’ve Been Wanting, Mars Daniel joins the best elements of funk, pop, and soul, to create an anthem for that first kiss to really mean something. It is part waking dream and part emotional directive to put more soul into everything you do.

Mars Daniel is a singer, violinist, and songwriter from Los Angeles. This track is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
