Daniel Pellegrini is a guitarist/vocalist from Issaquah where he grew up in a lush forest environment on a local mountain. A childhood love of all music grew into something more when Daniel discovered artists like Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, and Michael Jackson, which prompted him to explore all kinds of rock ‘n’ roll. It was at the age of 9 that he first picked up a guitar.
Daniel is inspired far more by 70’s and 80’s rock than present-day styles, an influence that is unmistakably present in his original songs. His music has been described as having a distinctively vintage flavor that pulls in older fans, while its modern edge to appeals to younger fans as well.
Pellegrini, Daniel’s self-titled debut EP, receives regular airplay on hard-rock Internet radio stations, and the first single release, “Walk in the Dark,” was used as a bumper on the Tom & Curley radio talk show on KIRO Radio 97.3.
Daniel’s first full-length album, Rocko Says… was released in May 2017. He plays gigs in the greater Seattle area, both as a solo artist and with his band.
