The young Australian virtuoso recently
described as "the finest guitar player of this generation" brings his tour back
to Canada for the first time in three years!
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"
The story goes that the young
singer-songwriter and one of a kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his
instrument of choice as a 5-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.
The following decade has seen him release 5
studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe with upwards of 300 shows per
year, play some of the biggest festivals under the sun and share stages with
the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco,
Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.
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!
