An artist named Daniel Hall is from the west side of Detroit “Puritan”, who is best described as “Urban with a suburban spark”. He began making music in third grade when he had the opportunity to record with his music teacher. His music teacher pushed him to record on her MacBook Pro because she saw him constantly writing verses for other students. Daniel admits, at the time, he was too shy to perform his own lyricism himself. He became obsessed with writing and see the reaction he would get from his father when he dropped punched lines and metaphors, but his father told him that wordplay is nice, but it’s all about what you are saying.

Where do you see your music going as for as career or what steps are you taking for future goals in life?
