Biography

Daniel J. Cartier is a musician and visual artist residing in Nashville Tennessee. 


History:
Daniel got his start in New York City, singing on subway platforms and street corners in the dead of winter. Discovered by Elton John - quite literally while singing for his supper - Daniel was signed to Elton’s label Rocket Records. Daniel’s first disc, “Live From New York: The Subway Sessions” was recorded live on a New York City subway platform, and proceeds were donated to various homeless organizations. Says Daniel, “Many people who fall through the cracks of our society have no other place to rest their heads except the subway. Seeing as I was recording an album in essentially what was their home - I felt it was important to give something back to them.”

Daniel was then paired with legendary producer Fred Maher (10,000 Maniacs, Matthew Sweet, Lou Reed) to record his major label studio debut for Elton’s label. The resulting album, “Avenue A”, was a critical smash, receiving 5-star reviews in various publications and landing on many “best of” lists at the year’s end.

Daniel toured throughout America and Europe and made several television appearances (MTV, VH1, NY1 News, FX) as well as local radio spots in cities throughout the U.S, appeared in numerous magazines (Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, Interview, HITS, PAPER, Vogue, Spin, New York Times, Boston Globe, etc.)
