Dan: (about his single 'Reason to Fly') I started writing it at Avalon Airport while I was waiting for someone to pick me up. I pulled out my guitar and the riff just came to me, it's about the everyday things you go through in a relationship – it's how you want the relationship to be.
Dan: I did five years of live gigs to get myself established before Idol, I also did a contemporary music degree at Southern Cross University, which many people don't know.
Dan: I sort of looked at Australian Idol as a platform to get myself known in the industry and its certainly done that.
Dan: I wasn't the brightest kid at school, and picking up a guitar came really, really easy to me, which was something that was quite foreign.
Dan: (about his writing) When I write it depends on what mood I'm in on the day. I can't just force myself to write. I can't pick up the guitar and say 'write from now' I sort of have to let it come to me.
Dan: My whole plan with Australian Idol was when I auditioned, if I didn't win the thing, at the other end was to find an independent so I could have creative control of what I wanted to do and be able to get my own stuff out there.
