Daniel Liguori grew up outside of Cleveland, Ohio, the youngest of
four. When his older siblings left the house for college, they left
behind echoes of the rock music they played on the stereo. This
music had quite an impact on Daniel. It was not long after
Daniel found himself figuring out many of those tunes on the family
piano. Soon, Daniel was off to college himself, but that was
the back-up plan.
It was in Tampa, Florida, where Daniel's music career began while
pursuing a Communication degree at the University of South Florida.
He forged his style as a singer/songwriter/guitar-player while
playing in a popular band called "Between Extremes." The band was
together for four years. In that time, they released a 10-song self
titled cd and had a decent amount of success around the state of
Florida, playing for the American Cancer Society, various college
functions, and many of the Tampa music venues.
After graduation, and a short stay in New York City, Daniel decided
to move to Austin, Texas, to enhance his solo music career. It was
in Austin where he released a 13-song cd, titled 68 Pennies. The
title track "Racecar" received airplay on some local Austin radio
stations. While playing at many of the respected Austin music
venues, Daniel shared the stage with the infamous father of surf
rock Dick Dale, 70's classic rock band Orleans, and
alternative bands Oleander, Tantric, and Vallejo.
While in Austin, he completed two nation-wide tours and finished his
Master's degree at The University of Texas, but school was still the
Daniel now resides on the road playing music. His most recent stops
have been Thady Con's, Kate Kearneys, Saints &
Sinners, and Prohibition in New York City; Seven
Springs Mountain Resort in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania; Irish
Kevin's and Bear Bottom Beach Club in Key West; A.J.
Sports in Tallahassee; and Flannery's in Cleveland,
Ohio. When asked what kind of music Daniel plays he replied, "songs
that bring emotion out of the audience." Daniel has quite an
extensive cover song list as well as numerous originals. He plans
to continue writing and performing music for a long time. Look for
him somewhere in a town near you.
