Daniel Ruffing is an instrumental composer and pianist located in Ohio. He started piano lessons when he was in fourth grade, having over 10 years of training and experience. Daniel starting writing songs when he was 16 after realizing there wasn’t a lot of modern music in the styles that he liked.
He set out to compose primarily instrumental songs with a “soundtrack” feel. His first song, Labyrinth, was released in October 2016, and featured just cello, piano, and bass. The song placed as a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition 2016. His second song, Serenity, also featured just cello, piano, and bass and was released in November 2016. Daniel’s third song, Flyer Waltz, was performed by the Saint Paul Concert Band at his high school in May 2017, and was a song that he had written to honor his graduating class of 2017. Daniel released his newest song, Journey, in July 2017. The song is a fully orchestrated composition, and was written over the course of one year.
Daniel’s music creates dark, magic and mystical soundscapes that carry dramatic rhythms, beautiful melodies, and orchestral instrumentation. Daniel is currently attending college at Baldwin Wallace University, majoring in Arts Management & Entrepreneurship with a minor in Music Applied.
