The story goes that the young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a five-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, and at 18, left school, turned professional and hit the road.
The next several years saw him traversing North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and of course, his homeland Australia, playing such festivals as California WorldFest, Winnipeg Folk Fest, Vancouver and Mariposa Folk (Canada), Belgium’s Labadoux Festival and Australia’s Woodford, Falls Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and the legendary Byron Bay Bluesfest.
Daniel has accomplished all of this while writing, producing and independently releasing two EPs: Gypsy Moon Volumes 1 and 2, his first long player Pint of Mystery (2011), My Own Design (2009), Wide Eyed and Open (2010), Real Live (2012), and The Heartland Hurricanes (2014). His latest release Fault Lines is available now, and is receiving airplay and accolades globally.
Daniel Champagne is a crossroads. Fusing the strong traditions of Blues, Folk and other roots art with pop showmanship and admirable lyrical ability. I firmly believe that he will become an ambassador for roots music in a time where it desperately needs representation. The Indie Blender, Canada
Today I saw the future of Folk – Festival goers flocking in their thousands towards the main stage to witness the young musical phenomenon from Australia dish out an absolute show-stopper at the evening’ send. Firefly Column, USA
Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifetimes studying the art. BW Review, New Zealand
The superb talent of Daniel Champagne can’t be explained by mere words; it must be seen to be believed. FasterLouder, Australia
Dustin Furlow is developing a reputation as one of the best acoustic guitarists in Hampton Roads, and his disc "The Sound That You Call Home" does nothing to dissuade that notion. Mike Holtzclaw - The Daily Press
Melodic, acoustic-guitar driven songs with lush textures nodding to the contemporary singer/songwriter genre. CDBaby, 2016
Incredible talent - playing every venue there is from NorVa to the smallest local cafes - the emerging acoustic talent in the area. Veer Magazine, 2014
With the smooth vocal sound of Dave Matthews or Jack Johnson, Dustin’s fingerpicking style of guitar stands out in a world of flat-picked chords. His articulate, jangling guitar playing contrasts beautifully with his honeyed voice. Dustin’s music is folky yet elegant. Resound Magazine, 2014
Dustin Furlow quickly became a favorite of Acoustic Highway listeners. His songs reflect a deep connection between the performer and the listener – allowing for a true shared experience. Dustin is one of the emerging acoustic acts that is cementing Southeastern Virginia as a major player in Americana Music. Barry Graham - NPR radio host of "Acoustic Highway"
