Daniel Dyonisius

26 year old composer and guitarist Daniel Dyonisius hails from Jakarta, Indonesia. While classically trained, his music is at the intersection of jazz, rock, and blues. Miles to Go (Demajors-December 2021) is his debut album and it includes seven original tunes and a fresh take on "Stella by Starlight". An homage to Indonesian composers and songwriters, Miles to Go is something of a spiritual journey through music, from soaring lead guitar lines to soothing ballads and with simple, melodic themes that counterbalance extensive and explorative improvisation. The album features Qadra Shakuhachi on drums and Hanhan on bass. Dewa Budjana (guitar), one of the nation’s most renowned musicians, makes a guest appearance on the title “Freedom”, adding a delightful colour to the composition.

Lee Ritenour:

“When I heard Daniel Dyonisius’ new album, I was so pleased to see that he had created his own unique guitar style. Daniel combined his songwriting, arranging, sound, and (most importantly) played with so much feeling, into his project, Miles to Go... Congratulations Daniel! Your album deserves to be heard by many! Keep up the great work!”

Dewa Budjana:

“Daniel Dyonisius… an up-and-coming talent with a unique guitar playing style and compositions. With a strong rhythm section consisting of Qadra Shakuhachi (drums) and Hanhan (bass), Miles to Go packs a great album presented in a solid guitar trio format.”
