Dan's passion for music began very early in his childhood, but it was only in 2007 that he started to work seriously in his singing. Petra, Avantasia and Dragonforce were some of his favorite bands and his early influences.
In time Dan came to know about singers like Fabio Lione, Michael Kiske, Andre Matos, Eric Adams, and decided that he wanted his voice to sound as skilled and powerful. That decision made him start to join in various courses and music schools to master his voice, studying contemporary singing, classical singing, piano, music theory and music composition. Eventually, Dan started to teach singing to local students as well.
With his metal band Fearless Dan released his first EP Ancient Wisdom, which quickly got international attention. The band initiated digital worldwide distribution of the album in 2013, bringing Fearless great exposure. The countless positive reviews and Dan's undeniable virtuosity brought him an invite from Juan Aneiros - producer and president of Charlemagne Productions - to appear on The Omens Of Death, the second metal album of the legendary Hollywood actor Christopher Lee. The concept album was released later in 2013 having Dan's participation as the character Oliver.
Motivated by those achievements, Dan went into the studio with Fearless once again. This time to record their first full length album Chronicles Of Ancient Wisdom. The production was completed and Dan started to reach out to record labels for a distribution deal. However, Dan would find out that all companies would only offer deals that were extremely invasive and disadvantageous to the band. The years went on and Dan kept trying, as he made a living of his singing lessons and session work.
In October of 2017, frustrated by the failed negotiations with multiple record companies and in grief by his father's death by cancer, Dan decided he would by himself build an audience for his work. Using his YouTube Channel, with only 4 thousand subscribers at the time, he started to publish weekly videos of his vocal performances.
Two years later, with a YouTube Channel with 62 thousand subscribers and more than 6 million views, Dan decides to independently release the album Chronicles Of Ancient Wisdom, which was received with praise by his ever growing fan base. The album was released internationally on October 14th, 2019. Currently Dan proceeds into growing his online presence while working Fearless' second album.
In conjunction with his activities with Fearless, in 2014 Dan joined the Finnish hard rock band OD and in 2015 he flew to Finland to join them on stage and in studio. Due to schedule incompatibilities Dan decided to leave OD to be able to focus on his main project.
Dan is also a student in the Music Business course taught by Kiko Loureiro (Megadeth, Angra) and graduated in the Music Careers Mentoring Program mentored by Tom Hess (Rhapsody Of Fire, Holyhell).
In 2021 Dan wrote, recorded and produced the intro theme song for the weekly web-show Friday Night Tights. The uplifting heavy metal tune titled All Hail Friday Night Tights paid homage to 80s cartoon openings and was released on August 27th of that year. It topped #1 in the All Styles charts in both Amazon US and Amazon UK stores for three days upon its release.
