Some artists entertain, Others captivate, Daniel Correa electrifies.
Daniel is singer, song writer and composer who masterfully fuses Afro Cuban rhythms with modern Pop and Rock to deliver an eclectic, vibrant and exuberant sound.
His music, an innovative blend of alternative rock and pop, is a high-octane testimonial to the exhilaration, yearning, and angst that defines coming-of-age. Working with his Grammy-nominated producer, Ahmed King, he uses his unique and powerful voice to address the inner struggles and challenges of everyday life, the thrill and fear of taking chances, and the elation of betting against the odds and succeeding.
He has already released three full-length albums—“Progressions”, “Polluted” and “Melodramatic—and his singles “Don’t Stop”, "Fold it Back” and “Take A Chance” have all climbed onto multiple Billboard charts.
“I want people to listen to my music and hear the honesty in it, to know that I’m not putting on airs or trying to be someone I’m not... that the joy and pain I write and sing about are real.”
Daniel has a four-year degree from the University of Miami Frost School of Music where he studied Media Writing and Production under the award-winning composers Chris Boardman (The Color Purple) and Carlos Rivera (Godless &A Walk Among the Tombstones). Under their tutelage, he worked with large-scale ensembles to score for Film and Television. Daniel was the first person at Frost to be listed under the principle instrument of "Contemporary Voice”—a recognition of his strong abilities as a performer of popular music. He participated in many different ensembles over the course of his education and won a Downbeat Award for Best Latin Performance in 2017 with the Salsa Orchestra ensemble.
Daniel is currently on a National tour with his band: the Collective Bus, opening for notable superstar artists: John Waite, Anna Nalick and legendary Woodstock performer Melanie.
He confesses that off-stage he tends to be quiet and introspective—a bit of an introvert. But it’s on-stage where he feels that he truly comes alive. Born in 1995 and raised in South Florida, his parents knew their son was unique when while dining out on family vacation, he began tugging at the pants of the venue’s performing musician and asked if he could join him on stage. The gentleman handed him the mic, Daniel smiled, began his count, “1,2,3…” and launched into a blazing rendition of Lenny Kravitz’s version of the rock classic, “American Woman.” He brought down the house. The gentleman said: “Now I’ve seen it all.” Daniel Correa was four years old.
