The London born actor/singer/songwriter started professional life as a dancer.
Daniel had this to say about Rise Studios;
‘The Performing Arts will always be close to my heart and I am proud to endorse RISE. These precious years training are essential if your goal is to become a professional, and the wonderful faculty at RISE, combined with a young performers own drive and desire will give all students/pupils the best possible chance of achieving exactly that.’
Daniel secured a contract with the prestigious Royal Ballet, and then The Rambert Dance Company, after 7 years of training and graduating with honours from The Royal Ballet School at the age of 17.
After 5 years of touring worldwide, De Bourg moved his attention to the music industry and was signed to DreamWorks Records, in Los Angeles, by Robbie Robertson.
Collaborations with R Kelly, Max Martin and many other Grammy award winning producers followed, and the 1st single from the project, I Need an Angel, hit the top 20 on the Billboard US chart.
Daniel then exploded on YouTube after uploading Drake/Miguel/Usher covers, hitting 50 million views and gaining over 245,000 subscribers to date.
Operating completely independently, Daniel created DDB MUSIC and his series of DDB Mixtapes (winner of consecutive ‘Best UK RnB Mixtape of the Year’ awards above Jay Sean, Estelle and Daley’s offerings,) have amassed over 200,000 downloads.
Most recently, Daniel turned his attention to acting and in his very first audition was cast in Disney’s Aladdin, in the West End, where he is currently playing the Principle role of Kassim and in the summer of 2018 landed his first role in a feature film as the leading man. ‘Ghost Tale’ is scheduled for release in 2019.
