His advice on surviving and thriving in a constantly changing music industry is sure to aid any budding artist trying to avoid the usual pitfalls or simply learn something new. His work as a promoter and booking agent through his record label Little Victories has given Daniel an in-depth understanding of the UK music scene and what it takes to ‘make it’ and what the true meaning of that phrase really is.

Workshops

In July 2016 Daniel was invited by Apple to run a ‘Hands-on Garageband Music Session’ at their Princes Street store in Edinburgh. Daniel co-hosted the workshop with an Apple technician and shared his perspective on using Garageband for songwriting, demoing and recording. He walked attendees through his process ‘from Music Memos to Garageband to Logic Pro’, creating an album quality track without leaving the iOS and MacOS environment. Daniel also discussed general songwriting tips and processes and fielded questions from attendees. Daniel’s performance was praised by staff and his workshop has become the mould for future ‘guest speaker’ sessions at the apple store.
