Daniel Lee Kendall is one of those really annoying talented people, who is not only a gifted songwriter, but a gifted songwriter with devilishly good looks and a naïve presence that is both disarming and beguiling.

Daniel Lee Kendall has a very sweet, understated stage presence. The youngster from Bensville had the difficult task of warming the stage for a mammoth line-up of Australian talent, and he did well to win over the large crowd who had gathered early to stake their places at the front of the stage. Kendall’s vocals are very smooth and Jack Johnson-esque, and while his gentle tones were at times a bit too same-y and safe, his music is very pretty.
Daniel Lee Kendall never planned a career in music. The Central Coast singer/songwriter has just released his second EP, Talk the Night Away, but it all happened almost accidentally.
“Do you say it Bully or Bull-eye?” questions Daniel Lee Kendall as a means of clearing it up before his set starts.
