Daniel is a singer and songwriter who writes and performs mostly on mandolin family instruments, though he plays guitar when doing solo shows or recording. Born in Pennsylvania seasoned in California, Daniel has developed a style that balances both traditional and modern, vocal and instrumental material. Inspiration for his original material comes from his surroundings, his family, and their shared histories. Daniel chooses traditional music to fit the themes he addresses in his original work. During his early days in central Pennsylvania Daniel picked up the guitar, started writing music, and played in a few bands. Local success inspired Daniel to move to California in pursuit of a career in music. Further inspired by his acquaintance with mandolinist/percussionist/raconteur, Joe Craven, Daniel began playing mandolin. He was hooked from the first moment, and in a few years made the mandolin his primary instrument.
