THE TEAM THAT MAKES IT RUN
Since anyone can remember, Daniel has been part of the "business of music" and the making of it. His formative years were spent as an artist performing, producing and writing with various musical groups from New York City to Los Angeles. Within that time, he developed as a composer and producer, and discovered the love of capturing that "intangible spirit of music" through recording and making great records in the studio.
As an Artist, he is an insider to the "business of music" in a way that most industry professionals aren’t, and he brings that unique lens to the company. As a Producer, he enables artists, musicians and songwriters to achieve their greatest work...always delivering for them while helping them create their greatest song. As the Founder of SecondsAFTER Music, he leads the charge to bring music and artists back from this current age of “disposable-ness” and return them to a place of value within the hearts and minds of the people listening.
“This is where the real value is and this is where you will find the listeners and fans for a generation and lifetime.”
"It always starts with a real artist...with a real song."
