Daniel E. Johnson
Growing up in Thomson, Georgia, music was always around Daniel– literally. He lived less than a mile away from WTHO, the local radio station, and spent hours listening to the music of his heroes on the station – and as he got older, he would make visits to the station, occasionally getting to perform on the station’s airwaves. Daniel’s most recently released EP was entitled “All we ever knew”, which debuted at number 11 on the iTunes Country Charts. All We Ever Knew includes songs that will enable fans to get to know Daniel in an up-close-and-personal manner, such as the guitar-driven “Here and Now,” and the current single, “American Hearts,” which he describes as “Very much anthem-sounding, very upbeat, kind of rock-influenced,” he says. Much of the album is slanted towards the sounds he heard as a child that combine the elements of Country, Rock, and Alternative Music.

It didn’t take long before everyone knew music was going to be his passion. As he grew in the local church he began singing at more than just Christmas programs and eventually joined his parents leading worship in the church. He currently serves as a worship leader for Elevation Church. Kameron’s accolades also include the Top 24 of The Voice Season 15, with positions on Team Adam as well as Team Blake.
