My name is DANIEL. I am a young humanoid, dwelling in BUFFALO, NY. On a mission to conquer and destroy apathy, I craft songs using the strings of the very organ in my chest. I believe the voice can be likened to a muscle. The more you work it, the stronger it can become. I've been honing my abilities since I was very small, being swirled around by my mother, in bare feet, dancing on the kitchen floor to Dave Matthews.
I continued to sing along to the tune of others, until I uncovered a song of my own. I was unable to stop. In the beginning, I struggled to form my immense thoughts into small melodic stanza, but it has since become effortless. I can be in the midst of a World of Warcraft raid, munching on some sugary cereal, or driving down a dimly lit highway when I am seized with inspiration. The blips and bleeps of my music speak as I mesh them with my own words, the same ones that work their way into your ears.
I spent a vast amount of time intensifying my focus on music. That's when I realized that there was nothing else. I was manic, writing and composing melodies as often as I took a breath. Humming along with a ukulele, regardless of the situation, appropriate or not, garnering strange looks from those around me. I procured a tiny synthesizer, a tambourine, a shoddy microphone, grabbed the ukulele, and started to piece together all that was alive in my head with Garageband.
I have morphed my sound many times, drifting from the darkest metal to folky woodland acoustics, but I have found my warmth and peace within the electronics you hearing today.
In 2011, I released an critically-acclaimed EP, "NORTH" (featuring "Heroes In The Sky", and "History Maker"), which won me first prize in the Electronic music category of The John Lennon Songwriting competition for "The Last Night", and a spot on Music Connection's Top 25 new music critiques of 2012.
Packed with a wild energy, armed with brilliant light, and loaded with infinite momentum; I'm ready to strike.
