Portrait of Daniel Lew on the beach.

Daniel Lew is a singer-songwriter with a mission to uplift the world. 10 years ago, he spontaneously went deaf in his left ear and developed tinnitus. This led him to devote his life to music. His songs combine folk, pop, and rock and are introspective in nature. His voice sounds like a blend of Bob Dylan and Chris Cornell, while his songwriting is more influenced by John Lennon and John Mayer. He has independently released 3 albums, amassed over 400 performances, and has been featured by CBC Radio One, Jade Music Festival, Pancouver Magazine, and Daily Hive Vancouver.

Recently, Daniel received praise from Jacob Collier and Ed Sheeran while he was busking. Ed invited him backstage to his show where he had the opportunity to share career insights and perform a song.

Daniel is an emerging artist in Creative BC's Career Development Program, and is recording a new album “Destiny” that is on pace to be released May 2024. He will be supporting the release with a Canadian tour. He has a vision of increasing the representation of Asian-Canadians in the music industry.

Daniel is embracing the momentum of his journey and is showing no signs of slowing down.
