Hello, I'm Daniel :) I’m a singer-songwriter from Glasgow and I tour my own music all over the world :) I've played hundreds of weddings and events including a European tour with Calum Scott! I’ve been playing for over 20 years and can tailor the music to your event! A massive congratulations on your upcoming wedding or event too! I can totally appreciate how special your big day or event is, and I'm happy to have a chat to discuss more :) It's a great feeling to be asked to be part of such important days, and it's something I really love doing! I'd love to hear your ideas and be part of such a special day :) Happy to learn special requests and play your 1st dance too! I play a huge repertoire including hundreds of songs from many genres and decades that you can find below! I bring all the equipment needed, and travel is no problem! I'm very experienced in a wide variety of events - from playing my own headline tours throughout Europe, to intimate proposals! If you have any questions, send me a message and I will be happy to chat more :) There's also a bunch of other clips on IG if you want to see more of what I do :) Feel free to get in touch to chat more about your event :) 
 Thanks and all the best with the planning! Daniel

Where can I start! Daniel has been fantastic throughout the process from the moment we checked out his profile on this. Good communication and understanding of what we were looking for. Daniel has such a great vibe which was totally what we wanted for our special day. Even with our last minute decision for a first dance he was more than happy to learn a song in just a couple of minutes. A true professional in every sense of the word. Also very accommodating and helpful for those who wanted to sing for us in the night 😅 Anyone who is looking for the best party/ atmosphere this is your guy!

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

I mostly perform solo. This includes; vocal, guitar and a stompbox (Sounds like an acoustic bass drum). However, I am also happy to discuss other options ☺️

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I totally understand that timings sometimes change. I'll always try my best to be as flexible as possible to ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible :)

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes! That's is no problem :) If you have your own playlist, you are more than welcome to use my speakers. If you would like to use my speakers after I have finished playing, I could also provide this for an additional cost.

How much time do you need to set up?

I only need 30 minutes to set up. Though I'll be at the venue around an hour before I begin playing to set up :)

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yeah roaming around is no problem - If you could let me know this is something you would like, that would be great to know in advance :)

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes - all equipment is included in the price. All I need is space to perform, and a power source to plug in to.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list, there may be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you would like me to learn, send me a message please. :)
