Daniel Powter to hit A8 Live in Shenzhen on April 22


Daniel Powter

Canadian singer and songwriter Daniel Powter will take a stop in Shenzhen for a show on his tour.

Powter is best known for his self-penned hit song “Bad Day” (2005), which spent five weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100.

He studied violin and piano when he was a child. Suffering from dyslexia, Powter had trouble in university studying music, and dropped out at the age of 20 in order to pursue his own musical career, learning all songs by ear and recording new melodies that he created.

Powter released his first album, “I’m Your Betty,” in 2000. Two songs in the album — “More Than I” and “Negative Fashion” — were featured on the television show “Higher Ground.”

Powter’s first single, “Bad Day,” was first released in Europe in 2005, in advance of his second album, “Daniel Powter.” Warner Bros. Records submitted the single for commercials, and it was subsequently chosen by Coca-Cola as the theme song for an ad campaign in Europe. The song achieved heavy airplay in most European countries, peaking at No. 3 on the overall European airplay chart.

In the United States, “Bad Day” was used extensively on the television series “American Idol” in its fifth season. Powter sang the song live at the end of the final show of that season May 23, 2006. The song reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Adult Top 40 and Adult Contemporary charts, making Powter the first solo Canadian male artist to top the Hot 100 since Bryan Adams in 1995 with “Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?”
