General Information


Daniel Haselwanter is a young Austrian singer-songwriter whose debut album "Between Lines" was released on the 16th of June (James Joyce's "Bloomsday") 2010. With Western guitars, percussion, bouzouki, piano, and a distinctive and expressive voice, he transfers contents in several languages, dealing with friendship, love for nature, adventure, infatuation and communication, but also personal tragedies, depression, and overcoming them.
Having been influenced and inspired by diverse bands and artists like Chris Cornell, Pearl Jam, Niels Frevert, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Led Zeppelin and Dave Matthews, it is difficult to stylistically classify him.
The driving force behind his creative work is always the love for music and the urge to express the inexpressible.
In early 2012, Daniel Haselwanter (vocals, guitar, bouzouki, ukulele) co-founded the band "Gratwanderer", together with the Styrian musicians Chris Laber (bass) and Conrado Molina (percussion).
