Dan Barracuda has been a professional musician for over 10 years, creating a myriad of eclectic projects including rock bands, a silent film/live music ensemble, an electronic duo, tribute bands, and an original theatrical rock production about dreams. Born into a Peruvian family, Dan developed his love for music at a young age. He didn't realize it was his calling, though, until he explored the depths of classic rock. While attending UMass Amherst (for Business), Dan spent the majority of his time writing over 3,000 musical ideas in between (and sometimes instead of) classes. Composing songs is the one thing he can't escape!
