Born in Hastings, Daniel grew up in a small farmhouse in the countryside where he began singing and performing in his early childhood surrounded by an eclectic mix of music, from Cat Stevens and Mozart, to Bob Marley and Queen

Daniel took up the violin at the age of seven, continuing to develop his musical and performance skills. At thirteen Daniel’s love for guitar became apparent and since then the pair have been inseparable, captivating listeners where-ever they played. After joining a local rock band, he started to write songs.

“The music began as a release, a way to voice what I was feeling, a way to let the emotions and stories out. I write about relationships, thoughts, ideas and people but I leave it open for interpretation so anyone can relate” says Daniel.

After leaving school, Daniel attended two years of the Performing Arts course at EIT, where he received singing lessons under top New Zealand opera tenor Patrick Powers.

Re-locating to Hamilton, Daniel worked in a café for a year. Carrying on his troubadour tradition, to, from and at work, composing on his accompanying guitar; he was frequently stopped by people wanting to hear more.

On his return to Hawkes Bay he and his guitar decided to begin chasing their musical dream. They turned pro and began recording his first album.

After building up a firm following, Daniel went on to support Eric Clapton, The Feelers and Goodnight Nurse; earned performances and interviews on National Radio, Classic Hits, Viva, and TV One’s Good Morning Show. All the while keeping “down-to-earth” with a healthy dose of busking in his adopted town of Napier.

His recording efforts have been rewarded, and the emerging album ‘Psychoanalyse’, a joining of Daniel’s musical and lyrical talents, was created at New Song Recording Studios in Hastings, New Zealand. Psychoanalyse has been met with great critical acclaim and has been released in record stores throughout New Zealand by his new partner in musical distribution, ODE Records.

Daniel recently placed second in the 2007 MLT Songwriter’s Awards and has received funding through NZ On Air New Recording Artist Grant to rerecord ‘Journal’ as a radio single and music video.
