It feels like I have been listening to his music for forever, and Daniel has to be one of the hardest working and most dedicated artists that I have the pleasure of knowing.
He taught himself music and has achieved an incredible five number 1 hits and People Magazine have referred to him as “One of SA’s greatest pop-stars”.
Last week he surprised fans with a sultry new single titled ‘Sacrifice’, and today Daniel Baron reaches a new milestone in his solo career as he breaks the one million mark with a total of 1,081,529 streams across the digital sphere (according to Tunecore Sales reports).
Known for his constantly evolving sound and bold cross-genre antics, Baron’s success has stemmed from pop-rock anthems such as ‘So Much More’, to the dance-floor chart-crusher ‘Children Of The Sun’, which was one of the biggest SA dance songs in 2016, also receiving airplay in Europe. He has collaborated with the likes of Euphonik, ProVerb, Sketchy Bongo and Pascal & Pearce.
Daniel, who opened for Bon Jovi at FNB Stadium in 2013 wrote on social media, “I am an independent artist, so the one million mark is massive for me. Thank you for listening to my music. Next stop 1 billion…” Despite being offered deals by a number of local and international labels, DB maintains that he wants to continue his journey as an independent artist.
He is currently travelling across the country with his Unplugged Tour, recently performing a number of shows along the coast with an upcoming gig at Bailey’s in Bedfordview, Johannesburg on 8 September. Further dates to be announced soon.
The crooner recently took off his shirt for the camera revealing a rather fit physique too – very nice!! 🙂
