Daniel Shaw is quickly becoming known in Australia for being one of the busiest buskers’s in the country! However, this past summer, Daniel has taken his talent worldwide on a Sizzling Summer Spectacular Tour.
Even before I introduce Daniel on this site last June, I had been following his career. Daniel continues to amaze everyone with his new original songs and extremely well produced and creative videos.
