Pianist, composer, and arranger Daniel Ketchum is a popular artist with classical and new age style music. As a child, his home was filled with either classical music or jazz. His parents would come home and he would have Mozart playing full blast as he was doing his chores. Daniel first became interested in playing the piano around the age of 12 when he asked his parents for piano lessons. While studying under Lisa Tharp his talents were quickly recognized, composing flowed easily and became the most fulfilling. At the age of 14 Daniel moved to the small town of Boulder, Utah where the lack of piano teachers didn't stop him. He kept playing and writing beautiful piano music and took part in music competitions. He's come a long way from the boy that skipped out on his friends to stay home, play the piano all day or listen to David Lanz and Mozart, his 2 favorite musicians growing up.
Music is Daniel's passion. His greatest ambition is to combine his love of composing music with his beliefs in natural healing. He believes, "Music has a healing effect on the body and soul, is great for effects ranging from reducing feelings of physical pain to boosting memory, even cleansing and restructuring water! Music in it's most pure form is vibration, and scientists have finally discovered what mystics have known for eons, that our universe is made up of frequencies or vibration. In fact everything that exists in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual realms does so on a vibratory basis. This is why I believe music to be such a potent healing force as it can physically change the state at which the we vibrate, thus creating health!"
Daniel's arrangements flow with a mixture of classical and new age style music. He has released several albums including his favorite that he just finished; "Among The Mist", a collection of 11 songs which includes original piano compositions, remixes and piano with vocals. "Among The Mist" is off to a great start and is getting rave reviews. His second album release, "Poems Of Notes", is massively popular with millions of streams per month and sales soaring.
