Daniel has been writing songs and living in the in the country outside of Montréal for most of his life.  He has led and played in many bands from Tiny Green Specks and Tiger Wang in his early years to later efforts in rambling, award winning string band Lake of Stew. He currently records and performs almost exclusively solo, but sometimes with friends. His latest release Calliope Mountain draws on a vast array of influences ranging from the 1960's folk revival, the singer-songwriter boom of the early 70's, and 1990's alternative. The result is a work that emerges from somewhere in the wild region outside the lands of folk and rock n' roll.
