Australian Idol Finalist 2005
In Early 2005 Dan entered the Australian Idol auditions. Driven by a dream and desire to make a career in the music industry and inspired by past Idols and the Australian Idol format! Dan already had a successful career forged in sales so this was a huge sacrifice for him to make! Having little knowledge and experience with singing, Dan entered the competition along with 30,000 other hopeful’s finishing 5th overall. “Not a bad result for someone who had performed a handful of times in public prior to entering Australia’s highest rating reality T.V show”.
Since 2005 Dan’s confidence and experience has grown immensely. A regular solo act up to 7 nights a week at Sydney’s most popular bars and night spots, his ability to entertain a crowd is second to none. One of the most diverse singers to emerge in Australia, You can expect to hear Jazz, Pop, Rock, Folk, Blues and Soul regularly from Dan.
More than meets the eye! Dan’s ability to take a song somewhere else and make it his own is the trade mark of this highly entertaining guitarist/singer.
