High-energy, emotionally-charged rock ‘n’ roll with brilliant melodies seeping out of every pore, Dan Orlando’s music is immediately unforgettable; he is a pianist, pop craftsman, captivating performer and singer/songwriter for whom music is more than the universal language: It’s the only language.
Blessed with perfect pitch and a multi-octave vocal range, Dan has been a professional musician for nearly half of his 28 years. “Music,” he says, “is the most honest form of expression for me. I get across my emotions much more clearly through music than I do through words or body language.”
As a youngster, Dan Orlando devoured the Elton John catalogue, as well as the albums of Billy Joel and other singer/songwriters who delivered the dynamics through piano, articulate lyrics and pure, soulful vocals. He also idolized Queen’s front man Freddie Mercury, for his elastic voice and flare for the onstage dramatics.
Today, along with his band, his unique blend of pop, rock, R&B and balladry is connecting with fans of every genre, from every generation.
And that suits Dan Orlando just fine.
Recently, Dan Orlando has stepped into the national spotlight performing at the “Power of Love” 20th Anniversary Gala, celebrating Tony Bennett’s 90th birthday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. As part of an all-star lineup, Dan took the stage with American Idol Season Six winner Jordin Sparks to sing a medley of Bennett’s hits. Additionally, he has the opportunity to support headliners like Andrea Bocelli, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Robin Thicke, The Blues Brothers, and other notable industry performers.
Whatever happens, music is what keeps Dan going. “I really don’t have a choice,” he confesses. “I’m a lifer. I’m a willing prisoner of this.”
