DANIEL KIRKPATRICK AND THE BAYONETS PERFORMS
ON NEW DAY NW

A Seattle band is packing venues with their fun blend of music that's being called "vintage rock." Daniel Kirkpatrick and the Bayonets' debut album "Alibis" is filled with songs that are catchy and inspired by sixties' culture and they are here to perform the song "Cynthia" from the album.

The band is holding an album release party at Neumo's in Seattle, this Saturday, January 25th at 8pm....

ALBUM REVIEW: ALIBIS

Sporting eleven tracks and a production value worth drooling over, this three piece rock-trio managed to find and accumulate a very dynamic sounding album.  For example, the opening track “Someday” sounds a little reminiscent of a Metric track and the closing tune “Emerald Blues” reminding me of a journey I once captured listening to Hawksley Workman....

RECORD RACK: DANIEL KIRKPATRICK AND THE BAYONETS

There’s a feel here of music that you can wrap yourself in. A caring soul, rare enough in music or anywhere these days. Music that gets you reflective. And there’s something of art in that, eh? ...

CD REVIEWS

Alibis — Daniel Kirkpatrick & the Bayonets (Rock Ridge)

★★★½

With a vintage rock sound that reminds me a bit of Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers, Seattle-based trio Daniel Kirkpatrick & the Bayonets make a nice first impression on “Alibis.” The polished 11-track debut shows a three-piece outfit (Kirkpatrick, Jordan Cassidy and Spencer Booth) that clearly enjoys making music together. “Someday” and the Elvis Costello-ish “Cynthia” get things off to a fast start and Kirkpatrick & the Bayonets also are on point with the title track, “Don't Leave Me Waiting,” “All I Can Take” and “Emerald Blues.”

DANIEL KIRKPATRICK RELEASES DEBUT WITH BURLESQUE DANCERS, MARCO COLLINS: ‘ALIBIS’ OUT AUG. 20

“I’ve overdrawn my bank account more times than I can count. I sold everything I could that had any value. I would’ve sold my car, but I owed more than it was worth.” This was Daniel Kirkpatrick as he made his bones in the early days of his current band, Daniel Kirkpatrick and the Bayonets. Yet, despite the hardships he would eventually endure, his career in music had begun in a way that seemed like success was guaranteed. At age 18, Kirkpatrick had gotten a substantial kick-start from his first performance in his hometown of Longview, Wash. where he performed in front of a crowd of 950 people.

“That kind of experience really kind of spoils you,” Kirkpatrick said. “I went down to San Diego for a show and I’ll never forget listening to ‘Born to Run’ and thinking, ‘This music thing is gonna be great.’ But then you find yourself in a bar with the only people in the audience – your girlfriend, your bass player’s girlfriend, and one drunk asshole hitting on both of them.” ...

DANIEL KIRKPATRICK AND THE BAYONETS – ALIBIS

Daniel Kirkpatrick and the Bayonets’ debut album Alibis sounds like an updated version of Elvis Costello’s glory days. Similar guitar strums, kicking drums, and funky organ grooves make each track a bluesy rock tune with an old-school vibe. Daniel Kirkpatrick is the lead vocalist and guitarist. Drummer Spencer Booth and bassist Jordan Cassidy, who both worked with Kirkpatrick in the past, flank him in this project, making The Bayonets. Kirkpatrick is clearly influenced by some rock n’ roll greats, such as Eric Clapton and Elvis Costello. The powerful melodies and Kirkpatrick’s gentle, yet masculine, voice give Alibis exactly that type of old-school rock feel...

DANIEL KIRKPATRICK AND THE BAYONETS
TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM IN AUGUST

Seattle-based trio, Daniel Kirkpatrick and The Bayonets have announced today, July 25, the release of their upcoming album, Alibis, debuting on August 20, 2013. The album will release through Rock Ridge Music with distribution through Alternative Distribution Alliance. This is the trio's debut album and its focus is on modern-vintage rock with emotionally charged lyrics and classical songwriting reminiscent of the 1960s British and American rock 'n' roll. The album also displays slow ballads with sensual guitar solos. Says Kirkpatrick of Alibis, "Calling the album Alibis stems from the fact that I looked for every reason to run away and not pursue this dream. Music felt like an uphill battle because I hadn’t found myself as a songwriter. With this record, I’ve finally conveyed what I needed to put forth.”...

This Longview, Washinton native took the long road to releasing his new album Alibis. A road that included the long trek down I5 to SanDiego, working at a Sunglasses Hut, providing a musical escort service (not as dirty as it sounds) and stranding his bandmate at the bus station...
