Audiences across the United States have enjoyed Daniel Childs' music. Originally from Memphis, Tennessee, Daniel spent years touring the nation in concert before settling on Florida as home. “Florida felt like home to me long before I ever knew living here was an option,” Childs said after a recent appearance. “It was a dream that became a reality. My wife Norma and I quickly fell in love with life on the Gulf Coast.”
Daniel is known in the Southeast for his full, dynamic acoustic guitar playing as well as his melodic, heart-felt singing. Solo, he has been a regular at many premier beach venues up and down the central Florida Gulf Coast, charming audiences with thoughtful renditions of hit songs from the past four decades.
In addition to working as one of the Gulf Coast's premier solo performers, Daniel is currently in the studio recording an album of completely original music. The first single, "Siesta Key", released online June 20th and has been making waves among listeners. "This song takes me to another place," reported a listener from Tennessee. "I can close my eyes, and just for a moment, I'm in the place he's singing about. Siesta Key, Florida."
"I hope the music I'm working on helps people relieve stress," Childs told us. "These tunes are positive. I wrote some of these songs as an escape during a stressful time period, so I hope they can be an escape for others as well."
Daniel Childs' full-length album is expected to release later this year.
