DanO, the lead singer and bassist of Ontario punk band The Dead Sparrows, has revealed a folky side project called The Barefoot Sailor. Like many punk-turned-folk front-men before him, DanO almost switches genres completely, but still manages to keep his punk sensibilities well in place.
Right now he’s streaming two new songs, “Anchor’s Away!” and “I’m a Barefoot Man” from his upcoming EP. You can listen to both songs below.
The Barefoot Sailor’s self-titled debut EP will be released on March 20, 2014.
