Philomel cellist and basso de gamba musician Vivian Barton. Daniel studied with Barton for 8 years
and began to participate in local youth orchestras.
After his years of performing and studying of classical music, he began to follow his love for rock
and alternative music. inspired by cello alt bands
like Apocalyptica and Rasputina, Daniel began to
perform with local bands and create his own music.

project and released his debut album “From the
Subconcsious” as “Dejesus” under Noisia records.
In 2008 he joined the band that had originally inspired him, Rasputina; an all cello rock band based
in New York. In 2010 his current project, TivaTiva
Tivativa is the combination of soaring vocals and lush arrangements that creates an other worldly sound that is symphonic
in quality and tone. The music is based on a powerful desire for escapism into an internal portrait that dwells within the
mind. Tivativa’s music and themes are influenced by stories of personal histories, biographies of saints, and childhood all
rolled into a sound that is raw and passionate in tune to the likes of Radiohead, Bjork, David Bowie, and Jeff Buckley.
