Daniel’s passion for singing began at age 9, when he was a boy soprano who would sing with his Grandmother as his piano accompaniment. In the many years since Daniel has gained a wealth of performance experience.
Since beginning his professional career, Daniel has been in demand as a performer for numerous large sporting events, including rugby union’s Bledisloe Cup and Lion’s Tour, International One-Day Cricket finals, A League Football finals, and the Australian Swimming Championships. Daniel has also often found work as a recording artist and vocalist for weddings and various corporate events.
The Gale Edward’s directed production of Jerry Springer The Opera – held in 2009 at the Sydney Opera House – saw Daniel cast as the cover for both Dwight and God, as well as an ensemble member. In 2012, Daniel joined the internationally acclaimed vocal group The Ten Tenors and performed in theatres around Germany, America, Australia, and Europe as part of The Ten Tenors’ Double Platinum tour.
Daniel was also guest singer for the arrival of Pope Benedict at Barangaroo in 2008, has been a guest performer at the annual Merry Makers concert, and was a finalist for both The Rob Guest Endowment and The Joan Sutherland Scholarship. He has taught at, and is a graduate of, the Australian Institute of Music.
Well accomplished in both theatre and studio vocal techniques and attitudes, Daniel’s skills extend to arranging, producing, song writing, and teaching. As a result of his studies and broad musical interests, Daniel’s repertoire includes opera, lieder, musical theatre, cabaret and contemporary music.
In 2014 – 2016 Daniel toured in the international production of Les Misérables covering the role of Jean Valjean and playing it over 100 times. Later this year he will play the role in Christchurch, New Zealand.
