Hi. I'm Daniel Donato. I'm from a small town right outside of Nashville, Tennessee. A lot of cows.
I play guitar. I also write and sing. I started music because I was the worst skateboarder at Heritage Middle School. I had Guitar Hero at my house, and would beat my friends at it everyday after school. One day, I tried my hand at the real thing and then had an epiphany of cosmic proportions. I learned from YouTube and practiced 12 hours a day. Everyday. At 14, I started busking for tips on the street. I made $500 one day and lost my mind. I gave away a lot of business cards playing for fans in parking lots after concerts for Garth Brooks, Phish, and John Mayer. Then I joined the most prestigious Nashville cover band at a venue that was the HOME for Classic Country & Western Music. I did 500+ shows at 5 hours a night, 5 days a week at this bar. I missed out on prom. I've toured with famous artists and bands playing guitar for them. Now, I'm working on my own sound and vision (#COSMICCOUNTRY) and hope to see you in person ASAP. I also have a podcast (The Lost Highway) with guests of mine being Country Stars, Jam Band Wizards, Entrepreneurs, Doctors, and other brilliant minds. Maybe I do look a little like Tom Holland, ya...
