about

Danny Lackey brought out the best in all whom he touched. He helped coalesce the shoegaze resurgence with his work for the blog When The Sun Hits and gave those of us who are drawn to that strain of early 90s dream pop a soft place to land. But Danny's pure enthusiasm for shoegaze extended to his own music making and resulted in his ongoing project Deepfieldview.

I met Danny in person at the XD Records festival in Chicago in November of 2011. Danny had been diagnosed with a brain tumor earlier that year and his ability to play had been affected. So when he woke up from surgery and felt his left hand working again he dove into his music with fiery purpose. He told me this story in Chicago and I was so deeply moved. We'd already collaborated on the track "21 Grams" and I vowed on the spot to help him bring his musical vision to life.

He reached out to Eric Matthews of Cardinal, Joey Levenson of SPC ECO, Anna Bouchard of Drowner and Nancy Nieland, my partner in Her Vanished Grace, to help. His compositions, which he created with layer after layer of spiraling guitars over dark drum loops, became a setting for us all to work together. With Danny's encouragement we made many of them into songs with vocals and lyrics. The project was not finished when he passed away in early 2013. As the year progressed, Danny's wife Barbie found the strength and inspiration to write her own beautiful songs with his music to complete the picture. So we now present a definitive collection of Danny's vision of Deepfieldview, shepherded to completion by those who loved him.

Many of the tracks were created around Danny's demo mixes; we didn't have access to the separate tracks. But this music is full of his spirit and vibration and was a total inspiration to all of us involved. You can hear his life energy coming through, bringing us all together.

~Charlie Nieland, June 2014

My sincerest love and appreciation to those who were not on this album, but showed great compassion to me and Danny when we needed it most. Special thanks to Amber Crain and When the Sun Hits, Perry Pelonero and Kim Welsh of A*Star, TL Reid, Anne Marie Taul de Neergaard, Anna Bouchard, Rob Turner, Paul Lopez, David Alejandro Goffan, Mark Mills of Butterfly Effects, François Sky and a world wide music community, all of whom came together in an amazing show of love and support for a fellow musician and friend.
