How many times has a song truly changed you? How many times have you heard a song and it instantly altered your mood, brought clarity, made you cry or made you burst into song? Has a song ever got stuck in your head so good that you couldn't stop singing it or humming it until all those around you went mad? What if that song had a profoundly positive message? Maybe those around you would stop and say 'Hey, that song you've been singing all day, it makes me feel good, what is it?' 'Connect' is an album full of such songs, songs that you can go around singing all day that remind you that this world really is wonderful place and that joy, love and bliss are your natural state of being. Hopefully you will sing loud enough so that others will hear you and your constant smile will transfer over to them and they in turn will affect others. That was the sole aim of Australian singer/songwriter Daniel Coates in creating Connect. To share a bit of love and positivity and connect people to their happiness. After all, what everyone is seeking is Happiness and Harmony. If we are truly happy ourselves we can make others happy too 'I think the wisdom contained in the songs is universal wisdom not personal wisdom' says Daniel Coates. 'I wrote the songs but really I just had the pen and the guitar ready at the right times to receive what arrived'. 'The messages contained within the songs, when followed are a recipe for a happy, fulfilling life. The messages are simple, but the most powerful messages are always simple'. 'Moreover when the messages come in a musical format, we can dance the messages, sing the messages and vibrate with the messages. The messages then are absorbed into our consciousness much more readily'.
