First Public Performance:
In June 1997, Daniel left a career in advertising to pursue a dream of becoming a country artist. Persuaded by local country radio stations, family and friends, Daniel Lee made a life changing decision. He not only followed their advice, but more importantly, he followed his heart.
In 1999 at his first showcase, he was approached by Atlantic Records with an offer for a record deal. He didn't end up taking it. During the next four years, it would be the same story with two other major labels in Nashville. Daniel Lees worst fear was to walk away from these offers, and never have another come his way. But, the offers werent quite right, and he believed that his big chance was yet to come, and when it did, he would know it.
During this time he also toured, opening for a number of other artists, but that didn't help him get his music on the radio. He began to wonder if it wasn't a mistake passing up those record deals.
In November of 2002, Daniel Lee signed with his label of choice, ChinMusic Records. When the company was formed, Daniel Lee was the first and only artist on their roster, and their agenda.
Enter 2003... where Daniel Lee wants to be.
