Daniel In Stereo

Daniel in Stereo is the Indie Pop project of Daniel Chimusoro.

In the project's existence, its debut e.p entitled, "4 Years E.P" has landed him an opening spot for bands like House of Heroes, SmashMouth, as well as back to back festival spots( 2014 and 2015) at Bunbury Festival (Cincinnati,Ohio) , one of USA Today's "Best Summer Music Festivals"(2014) and Forbes "10 Summer Music Festivals Worth Knowing"(2014),a slot at the 2015 Paper City Music Festival (Chillicothe,Ohio) as well 4 dates on the 2015 Camplified Tour Roster. The lead single "Son Be Careful" from the release has found its way onto playlists for Cincinnati radio stations, Project 106.3 and WNKU 89.7.  

Daniel's 2015 Bunbury Festival drew the following review from Citybeat's Brian Baker,

"In just over a year, Daniel Chimusoro has dropped a world-class EP, 4 Years, with the power of early U2 and Foo Fighters at their most melodically straightforward (and if you're a fan of Police drummer Stewart Copeland's quirky Pop alter ego Klark Kent, you might detect shades of that as well) and began building the kind of grassroots following that could eventually take him on a Walk the Moon-style magic carpet ride. Daniel's latest single, "Lipstain," released just days before Bunbury, has the same kind of summery bounce and infectious hookery that pushed "Shut Up and Dance" to the top of the charts, and it was certainly a highlight of his Bunbury set, but it was hard to pick out favorites in a deck stacked this solidly. There is the obvious novelty of Daniel's band, the by-now familiar guitar/drums duo, but Daniel's use of backing tracks, loops and pedals means he can rise above the three-chord Garage stomp that usually results from this pared down lineup. For Bunbury, Daniel's beatkeeper of choice was solo-artist-in-his-own-right Colton Jackson, who proved he was more than up to the task of keeping up with the billion-watt smile and unstoppably joyful force that is Daniel in Stereo."'s Nat Tracey-Miller also had this to say about Daniel's Bunbury performance,

" “Given the name, I feel a bit cheated that they’re not both named Daniel. That has to be false advertising, right?” High-energy early afternoon power pop from this local duo led by the titular Daniel Chimusoro, whose strong tenor invoked Brandon Flowers. They covered Kings of Leon, played their new single “Lipstain,” and had the sprawling afternoon crowd up and dancing from the get-go."

Daniel's 2015 summer single, "Lipstain" drew the following review from Citybeat's Mike Breen,

"DiS is the Indie Pop project of Daniel Chimusoro, who writes and records his music solo but works with various musicians for live performances. A Bunbury veteran, Daniel in Stereo recently revealed a new single, “Lipstain,” a joyous swirl of ’80s synths, groovy guitar and ear-worm melodies."

He closed out 2015 by getting a nomination in the Alternative/Indie category for 2016 Citybeat's Cincinnati Entertainment Awards.

Daniel just finished working on his second ep in Nashville with producers Matthew Hoopes (lead guitarist for Relient K) and Mel Washington ( formely of All Get Out). He is currently booking a promotion tour for the soon to be released E.P.
