Ross is an accomplished and versatile singer/songwriter, composer and producer.
He works prolifically on soundtracks for film and television, at times producing
other singer/songwriters and occasionally emerging from the studio to perform
his own work or in support of his collaborators. The long hours and unforgiving
deadlines of producing for the film and TV industries have honed Daniel’s arranging,
multi-instrumental, and technical skills. From pop, and electronica, to roots,
jazz, and symphonic score for film, he crafts much of his work in his studio,
The Spinning Widget.
Live on stage, while Daniel has made a reputation with his distinct guitar style,
he also performs on bass, keys, drums and percussion with a variety of different
artists. Some favourite live shows were as lead guitarist with Shannon Moore’s
band Deep Julia, opening for Peter Frampton, Jewel, and
has racked up an impressive list of credits. In addition to his score for the
internationally acclaimed award-winning television series Madison, he
has co-written and produced songs for the series with lyricist/vocalist and
Gemini Award winning actress Sarah Strange.
He co-produced singer/songwriter Allen Dobb's critically acclaimed Horses
and Hills, joining Allen to tour in support of the CD.
He was honoured in New Orleans at the international Promax 2000 Awards,
where he shared a Gold award for his sound design and score for Knowledge
Network’s Everything Begins With A Thought.
He received a CTC award for his score and sound design for Doug Greenall’s
stage play Dead Serious, and has re-kindled his collaboration with Greenall
on the filmmaker’s feature film Sister Blue, a psychological thriller
that featuring Daniel’s ethereal and chilling score.
Daniel has recently finished producing a demo for singer/songwriter Cameron
Dobb, and is currently active with his own project The Lost Railroad
Journal, a concept country/roots CD of fifteen of his songs, written from
the perspective of an early 20th century drifter--a composite of some of his
more colourful pioneer ancestors. The Lost Railroad Journal features sixteen
performers, many of whom join Daniel to perform the songs live as part of The
