Melbourne talent, Daniel Nistico (who I’ve featured on the blog previously) is, as we speak, in the recording studio laying down tracks for his very first studio album. How very exciting!
Now Daniel doesn’t have the backing of a Deutsche Gramophon or some other major record label (although I’d be surprised if that didn’t occur in the not too distant future), and so he’s self-funding the creation of his first album. As I’m sure you’d guess, that’s not a cheap undertaking, so he’s put a bit of a crowdfunding project together with the promise of some goodies for those that contribute to the creation and release of the album.

Daniel is currently studying a Masters of Music Performance at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music with Aria award-winning guitarist Antony Field and internationally renowned pianist Donna Coleman. Daniel was originally taught by his father at age 12 and studied at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) Young Academy and the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School (VCASS).
Daniel frequently performs around Melbourne and is regularly broadcast on both ABC Classic FM and 3MBS Fine Music Radio Stations. Daniel is an active member of the Classical Guitar Society of Victoria and was a winner of their prestigious Alhambra Sadie Award. Daniel is an active performer, performing in countries including the US, Serbia, New Zealand and South America. He also represented Australia and New Zealand, winning the 2011 Lions Global Youth Music Competition, establishing himself as a concert guitarist of high calibre.
