Growing up in Ballarat Victoria Dan has been playing drums since the age of 9. Raised in musical theatre and finding a love for performance, his preference for music shifted from there, finding influences from bands such as Issues, A Day To Remember, Blink-182 and Hands Like Houses.
Completing a Bachelor of Music Performance at the Australian Institute of Music, Dan has been taught by some of Australia’s best, including Darryn Farrugia and Gerry Pantazis. He also continues to learn from Dan Kerby (DK Drums) to continue taking his playing to a new level.
Dan first joined ‘Falling Infinite’ in 2015 who opened for I set My Friends on Fire. The disbandment of his first band led to the forming of his current act ‘Anyone Anyone’ (formerly known as ‘Miss Adventure’) who have supported bands such as We The Kings, Awaken I Am, Secrets and Dream On Dreamer.
Dan has also started teaching in Ballarat, with a growing roster of 28 students, he teaches at a number of schools and also independently from his home studio and is always looking to bring more people on board.
With his bands debut EP underway and teaching underway Dan certainly has big things ahead for himself.
