STYLE PHILOSOPHERS with Michael Perris Episode 5 features special guest DAN FONTAINE, the multi-talented and uber stylish Sydney-based composer/musical director and virtuoso percussionist. On this special episode, exploring “The Style of Soundtracks,” Michael and Dan chat about his youtube sensation status, his award-winning orchestra, the influence of Henry Mancini and bossa-nova inspired soundtrack sounds, and of course, his personal style philosophy – also featuring an exclusive world premiere of three new tracks from the Dan Fontaine Orchestra!
DAN FONTAINE, one of Australia’s most sought after music stars, has amassed millions of Youtube views and international acclaim with his various projects. Working with some of the world’s top musicians, Fontaine’s collaboration with famed choreographer Travis Wall for the US Dancing With The Stars earned the performance an Emmy Nomination! His Orchestra bring a lush cinematic sound reminiscent of the ’60s and ’70s into the 21st century, combining contemporary beats with a retro symphonic sound.
Fontaine’s album “Champagne & Quail” is available on iTunes and all streaming platforms along with his new singles “A Day In The Life Of A Fool” featuring Barrie-James, and his take on Antonio Carlos Jobim’s classic “Once I Loved.”
