  • I recommend Daniel without reservation as a songwriter and performer. From the moment we engaged with him, we felt we were in good hands. He followed our direction and translated our thoughts perfectly into a dynamic and nuanced composition. We could tell by the dancing and clapping that the delegates really enjoyed his performance. He energised the crowd and got them on the dance floor – often quite a challenge at corporate events.

  • Daniel has produced 2 song for Roche, Accu-Chek. He incorporated key messages, themes and company values so brilliantly in the lyrics. These songs have even reached our Global Organization and have been used on a few occasions to inspire and motivate! Daniel's live performance further enhanced the experience for the Team, and created a brilliant vibe. Daniel has incredible talent… A true artist."
