A leading light in acoustic music.
Recently described as ‘the finest guitar player of his generation,’ Australian-born, Nashville-based Daniel Champagne brings his world tour back home!
With more than a million streams on Spotify for his song ‘Indigo’ he has been praised for being naturally adept at some techniques that others can’t master. Daniel is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for dropping jaws, making crowds buzz and breaking guitars wherever he goes.
Daniel has released five studio albums, toured relentlessly around the globe with upwards of 300 shows per year, played some of the biggest festivals under the sun and shared stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.
The story goes that the young 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, training classically throughout his teens and performing wherever he could. Honing his craft and developing the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.
‘Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical’ The themusic.com.au, Australia.

“Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes studying the art.” BW Review, New Zealand.
“The word prodigy seems to entirely fall short of this soft-spoken young man’s skills, he coaxes sounds and melodies out of his instrument that literally drop jaws.” The Calgary Herald, Canada.
