Daniel Wainright


Daniel Wainright started playing percussion in 1997. Throughout middle and high school, he shadowed Nashville musicians in his church orchestra and fell in love with all types of percussion instruments. He decided to further his education and earned a degree in Music Education from Tennessee Technological University. Through out his college years, he performed in many varieties of ensembles at Tennessee Tech. Daniel also performed with many singer/songwriters, country artists and worship leaders outside of school. After graduation, Daniel moved to Austin, Texas to further his career and has lived there since.
He has been fortunate to use Pearl and Adams instruments all his life. The percussion instruments he used in high school, church orchestra and college were predominantly Pearl, and he fell in love with the sound, quality, and craftsmanship associated with Pearl. He regularly performs with two MCX series kits, MCX snare and Reference snare.
