Singer/songwriter Daniel Wakeford has been writing and performing for 8 years. His music combines fascinating lyrics with a pop sensibility, performed with huge charisma and devoid of any pretension. As a solo artist, Daniel is breaking new ground for learning disabled musicians, gaining a reputation for his unique craft as a song-writer and his joyful stage presence. In the summer of 2016 Daniel tours the UK (tour produced by Constant Flux) and releases his first album, The Songs of Gigs.
Hugely popular on Channel 4’s series ‘The Undateables’, Daniel became the poster-boy for autism in his quest to find a girlfriend. His musical talent has been integral to his life since he wrote his first song,’The Black of Lonely’, aged 17.
“A legend and an inspiration” – Marc Riley, BBC 6Music
