Schooled on musical icons at a very young age by immense amounts of classic VHS tapes, Daniel James picked up the guitar and ran with it.

First performing professionally at age nine, he has shared the stage with such names as Les Paul, April Wine, the Sheepdogs, the Trews, King’s X, Colin James, Everclear, Gin Blossoms, Finger Eleven, Three Doors Down, Kim Mitchell & Jeff Martin, as well as performing at esteemed venues from New York’s Apollo Theatre to Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom.

After years primarily spent backing artists such as Lee Aaron, No Sinner and The Led Zeppelin Show, Daniel is back on the originals scene as a member of harmony-packed hard rock defenders Aviator Shades and with his own Brass Camel – a unique musical assault with a swathe of fresh progressive-funk numbers with which to boogie ya down!
