Bio

"It all starts with the song" By combining memorable melodies, lush backgrounds and a hybrid acoustic/electronic production, daniel has created a sound that hooks you instantly. Like fellow artists Seal, David Gray and Robbie Williams, he has written songs that follow their own path and cross genres. "When I write, I don't think about what's pop, alternative, or R&B, I think about what feels right and what moves me. I like a cross-pollination of styles because that's what I listen to, an eclectic mix of music. I'm just trying to be me by writing what I feel passionate about, and I try to make that shine through in both my voice and my music." What began as a chance to express himself with a voice and guitar, has become an adventure in sound and technology. "The songs have taken on a life of their own once we began exploring what we could do in the studio." Rising from the ashes of his former band, Less Than Seven, daniel became acquainted with producer Michael Crain through a mutual friend and the chemistry was instant. "He comes from a trained background, where as I play and sing mostly by ear. This combination of styles, with the theory and multi-instrumental background he provides, has really made for a creative environment in the studio." It is in the studio that daniel has refined a sound that is uniquely his own. "Right now there are no rules, giving me the ability to focus on music. I really believe there is a place for individuality in the marketplace, and that given the opportunity, people will relate to these songs we've created." The songs are just the beginning. "I'm excited about presenting them to the public. I love to write, love to sing, but it's in the performance that you get the greatest, most immediate response. I'm ready to make my mark as an artist and to share my thoughts and ideas with an audience. So far, the response has been incredible and I can't wait to see what the future holds." Daniel was recently selected to be the "Featured Artist" for the NBA's Orlando Magic's inaugural charity CD "Total Team Effort", benefitting music in the schools as well as the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation. The CD, which is a collection of Orlando's best unsigned talent, features the original songs "This Love" and "See it Now" as well as a cover of Hall & Oates' "Sara Smiles". In addition, daniel also co-wrote "You Can't Get Far" performed by the vocal group MOSAIC with group member Sean Gerrity, which is the OMYF theme song. As the featured artist, daniel had the honor of performing the national anthem in front of a crowd of over 19,000.
