Daniel developed a distinctive sound for his live shows through his use of the electric violin, as well as looping, a technique which is increasingly highlighted by notable artists like Ed Sheeran.
The (non-electric) violin was Daniel’s first instrument, as he started lessons when he was five years old. He then transitioned to learning the acoustic guitar when his parents started noticing him strumming his violin with both hands, and it became a major instrument of his in high school. Daniel’s accolades include being picked as one of the top 100 acts in Season 7 of America’s Got Talent, and his "Sidewalk Guitar" EP is the current hold music for the online shoe and clothing company Zappos. He has had residencies at the Lily Bar and Lounge inside the prestigious Bellagio Hotel and Casino, the Mandarin Bar inside the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, and at the Red Rock Casino. Daniel has also been an easy choice for many corporate events because of his versatility, and has performed for company parties including Microsoft, SanDisk, and ProCore. He has even performed internationally for events in Australia, New Zealand, and China. After over 5 years in Las Vegas, Daniel has started performing overseas by first relocating to Singapore performing at the Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore for 6 months, and now has a new residency at the Park Hyatt in Beijing, China.
