Daniel Aaron is an indie-roots outfit of one - soulful, bare-footed, multi-instrumental. He’s got groove tighter than the federal climate budget, rhythm raucous enough for the toilet paper aisle mid-lockdown and style harder to pin than a chip packet in the wind. From soaring swells to heavy-hitting riffs, a thumping stomp-box to a nimble harmonica, dainty ukulele to bubbly bass-lines, gravel-coated vocals to whirring melodies, reserved yet rambunctious Daniel’s essence is all moulded with dexterity, intricate looping and a fire in his belly. Centered in earnest lyricism and the rhythm of the yidaki (didgeridoo), Daniel's songs will have you doting on beloved people, revering the landscape, and dancing with zest
With the release of his debut single ‘Running Backwards’ in 2018, an indie pop track, Daniel has been cast into view of the Australian public after winning the Triple J Unearthed competition to be featured on the lineup of Australia's biggest regional festival, Groovin The Moo, among acts like Paul Kelly, Royal Blood, Ball Park Music and more. Following his GTM performance, Daniel has taken to the horizons like a leaf in the wind, with big plans for a long awaited debut album; a conglomeration of indie folk, rock, roots and soul.
"One of Australia's finest
Having grown up in a small farming community of roughly 500 people in rural Victoria, Australia, until 18 years of age, Daniel has developed a certain mindfulness; the sort that encourages him to be kind and thoughtful, through environment, other people, and especially culture. This is something that he strives to maintain throughout all aspects of life, especially his music.
"The deep hum of the didgeridoo... fused with an array of instruments, somehow forges together to produce the hybrid-genre of Daniel Aaron's hypnotic music."
