Dalton heads back into the recording studio in Nashville at the end of May to record several more songs for this album and is excited to be back in the studio with Bobby Amaru who produced songs from his first album, “I’ll Be There.”

Dalton says,

“It’s been a while since I worked with Bobby and I’ve grown so much as a songwriter, vocalist and guitarist since then. We had magic when we worked together before, I can only imagine what it will be like now. Bobby is a really talented guy and he’s only gotten better too.”

In February, Dalton took the stage at Michelle Clark’s Sunset Sessions, a conference which includes performances from both new musical talent and established acts in front of radio programmers, music supervisors, artists’ managers, and major and independent record labels.
