Daniel Champagne is a singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso from Brogo, New South Wales, Australia.
One reviewer recently wrote "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" (themusic.com.au).
Champagne first picked up the guitar as a five-year-old, following in the footsteps of his musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing solo wherever he could, honing his craft and developing what would become the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road.
The next several years saw Champagne traversing North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and of course his homeland Australia playing such festivals as California WorldFest, Winnipeg Folk Fest, Vancouver and Mariposa Folk (Canada), Belgium's Labadoux Festival and Australias Woodford Falls Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and the legendary Byron Bay Bluesfest. He has shared the stage with John Butler, Judy Collins, Ani DiFranco, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Jake Shimabukuro, Richard Shindell, KT Tunstall, Lucinda Williams and others.
Champagne has accomplished all of this while writing, producing and independently releasing several recordings including his latest full-length release "Fault Lines" (2017) and the EP "Satellite City" (2018).
Now Champagne is regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for making festivals buzz and enchanting audiences with his musical prowess. He has relocated to North America where he continues his exciting career as an international touring and recording artist.
