Daniel received a certificate of recording and music production from Fullerton College in 2003, and later continued his music education at UCLA, studying under Grammy award winning producer, Jeffery Weber. During his time at Fullerton College, Martin formed a local rock band that headlined community concerts and showcased at West Coast venues such as the Viper Room, the Whisky, the Key Club, the Avalon, and the Robobank arena in front of audiences as large as 10,000 people . One of many notable performances was opening up for Korn in 2010 with fellow PSMG writer and current business partner Corey Bush. Martin has been on the artist side and the production side of the business and has the life experience and education to create hits and develop any artist from the ground up. In January of 2012 Daniel teamed up with his former bandmate Corey Bush to open up ReAmp recording studios, and it was then that Martin began recording, producing, and songwriting full time. Daniel and Corey began branding themselves as a writing team called the Assassination, and worked for months developing an artist that recently landed a recording deal with Trauma 2 Records. The music that they produced for this upcoming artist became quickly recognized by Publishers, Managers, and other industry professionals, and was the launch pad for their songwriting career with Perfect Storm Music Group. The Assassination signed their deal with PSMG in the first quarter of 2013, and their day jobs today are songwriting and producing for some of the biggest names in music. Daniel Martin is on the uphill climb and will have Grammys lining his walls in the very near future.He looks forward to a long career in the music industry and respects the opportunity to do what he loves for the rest of his life.
