Hi… I’m Daniel.

I am a music producer, songwriter, instrumental composer, mixer, and ridiculously amateur designer and photographer.

I launched my music production company The Burst Collective in 1996.

As of October 2011, I’m a founding partner in a new production music company, The License Lab.

In years past, I’ve created and produced three production music catalogs (Gravity Music LibraryVelocity Music Library, and Mixtape Production Music) that were subsequently sold to Warner/Chappell, Universal/BMG, and Sony/ATV.

I have literally thousands of cues currently being used by such varied clients as AppleNikeGoogleMicrosoftGM & Gatorade, virtually all of the top shows on HBOESPNCBSABCNBCFox, and all across the globe.

Burst HQ is a recording studio that I designed (with the help of Russ Berger Design Group) and built in 2002. It’s housed in a former post office just outside Milwaukee, and we’ve hosted some pretty great recording artists such as Rihanna, Chester French, Eric Benet, Maritime, Willy Porter, Northern Room, and a few others.

I’ve also mixed live recordings by Nick Lowe, Over The Rhine, Amos Lee, Blitzen Trapper, Los Lonely Boys, Phil Keaggy, and Crowded House.

My first love in the music world is producing records for other artists, something I’m grateful I still get to do from time to time.

Email is the best way to reach me.
