Band to Join.


I'm Daniel, but you can call me Dann or Danny. I've been living in Vancouver since 2016, but I was born in Brazil and I've had all the musician experience you can imagine.
At the age 19, after hitting stages around cities from 3 different states since I was 14 years old, I started taking MPB/Jazz classes at the biggest music conservatory in Brazil - Conservatorio de Tatui - where I studied for 5 years. I have been always a very eclectic musician. My saying is that as long as the song is good, it doesn't matter the genre. However, I can definitely say that the bands that I have enjoyed the most were either rock or metal bands. The 2 biggest bands I have played with were Seven Sins (people used to say it was a mix of Underoath and Funeral For A Friend) back in 2005-2008 at the countryside of Sao Paulo State (Brazil), and Zaltana (from Sao Paulo city, Brazil), with which I recorded an album between studios in Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Amsterdam (Netherlands), with great reviews as a very original metal sound from all the great metal magazines and radios from all over the country! During that time, I was also producing and recording bands from Sao Paulo, and I had a good run as music producer for 4 years.
Since I moved to Canada (about 3 years ago) I was facing some challenges with adapting, getting a job, supporting my wife and I, all that struggle newcomers face here. I did enjoyed playing with some friends every now and then, and we played some gigs around Vancouver. Now I want something more! I'm ready to be back at full speed with a band, preferably writing originals, but I would not mind joining a cover/tribute bands as long as I like the bands we are paying tribute to.

I have 2 electric guitars, all the effect pedals I love, my beloved Shure sm57 for backing vocals, but I only have rehearsal grade amp. Everywhere I've played had good amps that I could use, that's why I never bothered buying one. I'll buy one when the I need, though.
