PUBLISHER’S PICK OF THE WEEK (By Adam Waldman)

DAUGHTRY – “World On Fire”

American Idol isn’t exactly a path to rock stardom. Those that have managed to enjoy a career as a performer are predominantly in other genres. Aside from Adam Lambert fronting Queen, rock artists have not had much success. Chris Daughtry is the exception to the rule. His band Daughtry has spent most of their career signed to a major record label, but they are currently an independent band. It may seem like a step backwards to no longer be on a label, but in actuality, it may be a step forward (at least musically).

No longer is there pressure to write songs geared specifically towards garnering radio airplay. In an interview with Atwood Magazine, Daughtry shared his thoughts about writing music as an independent artist…

“I have full creative control right now, and I’m making the record that I’ve wanted to make for years,” Daughtry beams. “I’m not really thinking about, “Is this gonna make it on the radio?” Or, “Is this gonna be a cross-over?” I don’t give a shit anymore.”

Not giving a shit about radio and writing from the heart, combined with experiencing life in apocalyptic feeling climate of 2020, has brought out an energetic sound in the band that feels bigger than their previous work. Still dripping with infectious melody, “World On Fire” tackles meaningful subject matter in a heavier way than the past. What still remains is the distinct, impassioned sound of Daughtry’s vocals. Interestingly, not caring about radio play has not stopped the song from getting added to active rock playlists.
