Montreal singer/songwriter Daniel Casavant has been composing music since taking up the acoustic guitar at the age of eight. By 15, Daniel began playing the piano and continued to express himself by writing original tunes from observations of life around him.
Stylistically influenced by music heard on English radio, barely out of his teens, Daniel had a great desire to discover the roots of the music he so loved. So, he hitchhiked down to New Orleans and Nashville seeking out every opportunity to jam with local talents, while absorbing all the knowledge these veteran musicians had to share.
Creating music is in Daniel’s DNA. In 2009, Daniel realized his musical dream with his first studio recordings, Nine At The Time. His rich, haunting voice met with critical acclaim including a rave review in Cashbox Canada. The album received international airplay and garnered a number of accolades including The Billboard Magazine World Song Contest, The Mountain Stage Newsong Contest 2008, The UK Songwriting Contest 2009 and Mike Pinder’s 2009 Songwars.
