5 ON STYLE – Daniel Gagnon
January 24, 2011 Leave a comment
Name: Daniel Gagnon
Alternative country rock musician and proud Tillsonburger, Daniel Gagnon left the tobacco laden fields of his rural Canadian home town 17 years ago. He moved to Toronto to pursue his studies and subsequently, a career in Toronto’s downtown corporate world. After several years of successful high-level account management in information technology, Dan abandoned the safe haven of the white-collared to focus on a career in music.
He’s been playing local gigs since 2005 and has developed quite the following on the West Toronto circuit. His performances are a mix of covers and original material performed solo and with other musicians. Dan talks to It’s All Style To Me about his personal mid-seventies folk rock style pieced together courtesy of some carefully selected vintage accessories, his favourite design label Jack & Jones, some high-end Hugo Boss, and easy fitting GAP comfort wear.
