More About Dalton, From Dalton

I’m from Raleigh, NC, and am a lifelong, diehard Duke basketball fan. I grew up playing multiple instruments and quickly realized my gift in music. I moved to Sydney, Australia, in 2013 to study at Hillsong International Leadership College, where I studied songwriting and vocal performance. I’ve been producing music professionally for about six years, having had the opportunity to work with some influential artists in worship music. I also love sports and good food! Talk to me about March Madness, BBQ, and the English Premier League!
