"One of Australia's finest
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. 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 bunkered down over the course of the last 3 years to work meticulously on a captivating debut album. With exceptional collaborations, poetic themes and stunning production Daniel Aaron's recently released, self-titled debut album is a work of art, set to leave a lasting impact on listeners.

Daniel has developed an impressive solo, live performance. Having grown up in a small farming community, the lack of any source of music collaboration drove Dan to take on learning a variety of instruments, enlisting every arm and leg into the ‘one-man-ensemble’. Daniel was raised in the rural Victorian town of Pyramid Hill. Shaped and nurtured by the granite hills, river red gums, burning sunsets and endless horizon. Dan now ebbs between the waves of the coastline and the bends of the river country, getting lost in all the ambiguity of the landscape that inspires 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."
