Music has been a labour of love since I was a child. Having been brought up in a home where my father always had music playing, it left an indelible mark on me. In the early 80's, my father would bring back from his overseas trips, cassette tapes of new pop groups and this got me hooked. I started saving my pocket money and bought as many records and tapes as I could. As a teenager, I saved up for a nice stereo unit and keyboard whilst working in the holidays. I dabbled around making some of my own material on a 4 track mixer and mike. I released my first album in 1992 and entered an 89FM music competition where I was
runner up at which time I received a bit of NZ radio airplay. With travel and work committments there
was a hiatus of creating but I never lost the passion.
Technology has had a massive effect in the music industry and in 2008 I took advantage of this
and started to work on new material. I created a new instrumental album to see if I still had the
knack. With alot of encouragement from family and friends I decided to do a new album and
test the old vocals out and released "Supernova" in 2011 via Tunecore, basically just to see if I
could do it. With a few vocal tracks on the album and a few sales, I was encouraged to keep
with that style and do more but really make it about me and keep things original.
"Deep Down" was released in August 2013 and to my amazement, reached No.4 in the
Australian Reverbnation electronica charts! Picking up 150 fans on Radio Jango and
some good sales and reviews on Amazon, I decided to keep the creative juices flowing.
My new album “Evoke” is now released. Influences from my favourite artists are still
apparent and the album has been mastered by Tom Eales a well known London DJ.
Once again I am extremely proud of what I have accomplished and feel the new
album is more refined and polished. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have making it. - Daniel.
