The South Estate is an alternative folk rock band founded in 2012 by singer songwriter, producer and guitarist Daniel Grey. It consists of Grey, cellist/vocalist Tom Baylem, drummer Owen Schofield, bassist Marco Pisano and lead guitarist Herve Le Feuvre.
Daniel is writing music since the age of fourteen, and have been the lead singer of different bands in the punk rock and post hardcore scene in his early career. He sang and played guitar also in Viceversa which scored 18,000+ hits on Youtube. While playing with Viceversa, he started to write more mellow sounds and switch the screaming with a simple and melodic voice. His first EP "Old Timey Songs For An Old Time's Sake" was homemade recorded and self produced, and "The Glass Heart" was the song to pick as a music video to start promoting the band. He played around 30 dates in UK in winter 2013, and some in Italy at the end of 2012.
After numerous shows, Grey started to write the new album, which took an year to record it, mix and master it. It's called "Goldilocks Effect" and it talks about the society we're living. After one year of research, Grey got really infatuated with some sociology matters, from technology consumerism to cellphone usage, Grey realised it was the right time to write something about it. Our busy lives don't give us anymore time to build solid relationships. Our phones consume us when we feel alone, and we don't find anymore fun in what before was really simple: a conversation. Now you can post, edit, and build your own image at your advantage, if any.
Goldilocks Effect is not just a protest against the technology and society of our era, but also rock, country and folk, with melodic ballads about love and friendship.
