An Evening with Daniel Champagne - Australian singer, songwriter
• What we'll do The story goes that the young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a five-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, and at 18, left school, turned professional and hit the road. The next several years saw him traversing North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and of course, his homeland Australia, playing such festivals as California WorldFest, Winnipeg Folk Fest, Vancouver and Mariposa Folk (Canada), Belgium’s Labadoux Festival and Australia’s Woodford, Falls Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and the legendary Byron Bay Bluesfest. Daniel has accomplished all of this while writing, producing and independently releasing two EPs: Gypsy Moon Volumes 1 and 2, his first long player Pint of Mystery (2011), My Own Design (2009), Wide Eyed and Open (2010), Real Live (2012), and The Heartland Hurricanes (2014). His latest release Fault Lines is available now, and is receiving airplay and accolades globally. PRESS QUOTES Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation. - - The Indie Blender, Canada Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in their thousands towards the main stage to witness the young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stopper at the evening’ send. - - Firefly Column, USA Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience.
