DANIEL CHAMPAGNE ANNOUNCES AUSTRALIAN SUMMER TOUR 2024 + NEW ALBUM âTHE PURSUITâ
Daniel Champagne lives and breathes live music. Playing upwards of 250 shows a year he is passionate about spreading it around the the world and on the back of an action packed 2023 traversing the globe to rave reviews he will bring his tour back home for a string of NSW, VIC & QLD shows with a brand new album - âThe Pursuitâ
Growing up in the Bega Valley, on the Far South Coast of New South Wales 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 finished school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.
The following 15 years have seen him independently release 7 studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe, 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.
He has been described as âthe finest guitar player of this generationâ, âa leading light in acoustic musicâ and âa performer that must be seen to be believedâ and from January to March 2024, music lovers in NSW, VIC and QLD will be treated to and intimate live experience not to be missed!
