If you listen to nothing else on this artist's site, please hear Old Joe Clark, Always Taken, or The Story of You.

Daniel works with MIDI, DXi, VST, loops and sound effects, using Sonar Home Studio 4.

Most of his work is instrumental, but when writing songs with lyrics, he tries to go for anything that will make people smile. Often, the lyrics tend to be quite wordy and involved, leaning more towards ballad-like storytelling, and often towards a slightly younger audience.

Daniel also has quite a bit of stage experience, both singing and playing, mostly coming from playing camp-style music in a Christian band at local venues, as well as youth events in and close to his hometown of Walla Walla.

He is just now taking his first steps in the realm of exposure for his recorded music, but is pleased to see that Always Taken and If I Were A Butterfly have hit multiple Broadjam Top 10 lists.

Extended Bio

(March 15, 1986 -- )
Born and raised in Walla Walla, WA, USA.

I work with MIDI, DXi, VST, loops and sound effects, using Cakewalk Home Studio 2. I've actually been learning about and toying with MIDI since I was 10 years old or so, but I figure that my real music creation interest began my freshman year of high school. From there, my skill and knowledge base has grown, and hopefully it will never stop doing so from here on.

Most of my musical background comes from my parents. My father is an organist and pianist (and very recently picked up bass), and my mother is a violin teacher in the Suzuki String Program. I grew up on classical music, fiddle tunes, video games, and "Weird Al" Yankovic.

Most of the songs I write and arrange are instrumental, but when writing songs with lyrics, I try to lean toward anything that will make people smile. My lyrics tend to be very wordy and involved, often leaning towards ballad-like storytelling - likely a trait picked up from the fiddle tunes and Weird Al.

Lyrically, I tend to write for a younger audience, and my music can apply anywhere from kindergaten (If I Were A Butterfly) to adolescence (Always Taken) to young adulthood (Old Joe Clark).

I also have quite a bit of stage experience, both singing and playing keyboard as a melody/rhythm piano. Most of the experience comes from playing in a Christian band at local venues, as well as youth events close to town.
