Violinist Daniel D
Talent is a gift, and Daniel D. discovered his early in life. Since he first drew a bow across the strings of a violin at 12 years old. With his 2012 newly produced album ‘Epic Sounds’, his single ‘Lullaby’ has already reached the top 50 Indie Charts. In 2010 he produced his second studio Album Serenade following his first release, Play For Me in 2009. An Apollo Theater Winner, Charlotte Music Award Recipient, and a highlighted performer on B.E.T. 106 & Park, he was an opening Artist for the 2008 President Barack Obama Presidential Campaign, The 2012 DNC, Essence Magazine Susan Taylor’s Celebration - hosted by Oprah Winfrey, and at Jesse Jackson’s Birthday Event in the presence of notables such as, T.V. host Larry King, and the late Michael Jackson. Raised in Charleston, South Carolina, Davis graduated from that city’s esteemed School of the Arts in 2007, immediately setting off on a nationwide tour with T-Bone Ministries. Davis’ faith lies at the core of his music. A seasoned entertainer at just 24 years old, Davis is equally comfortable performing for an audience of 50,000 at the University of South Carolina’s Williams-Brice Stadium as he is playing at his family’s church on Sunday. He was awarded a Summer Scholarship at the New York’s Juilliard School of Music, won the U.S. Air Force’s Wide Talent Search competition, and his fiddle-laden remix of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech has contributed to regular invitations to perform throughout the country at special events. At home in Charleston, He’s been a featured artist at the MOJA Arts and Spoleto festivals. He teaches students weekly and periodically receive requests for string projects. Despite his successes, Davis remains a humble young man. This trait he hopes to pass on to his violin students. Daniel is the first to tell you that the pure joy of playing music far surpasses prestige or recognition. “Every opportunity to play offers new enlightenment and a chance to learn,” says Davis. “I love performing and I love playing — period.
