Daniel Johns

Born in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia on April 22, 1979, Daniel Johns is an award-winning alternative rock singer, songwriter, and musician best known as the frontman for grunge rock band Silverchair. Daniel Johns was 12 years old when he and school friends Ben Gillies and Chris Joannou formed a band, who would sign a recording contract as Silverchair three years later. The group’s first single, "Tomorrow," was released in 1994 and climbed to the Number 1 position on the Australian charts. Their debut album, Frogstomp, was released in March 1995 and became an international sensation, reaching Number 10 on the Billboard 200. Their second album, Freak Show (1997), was another international chartbuster. While their next three albums – Neon Ballroom (1999), Diorama (2002), and Young Modern (2007) – all hit the Number 1 on the Australian charts, their international success was short-lived, and the group officially split in 2011. However, Daniel Johns was involved with other musical projects during Silverchair’s existence including The Dissociatives (with Paul Mac), who released the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Rock EP (2000) before unleashing their self-titled album in 2004. After Silverchair’s split, Daniel Johns released his debut solo album, Talk, in 2015, which climbed to Number 2 on the Australian Albums chart. After several more collaborations with other artists – including 360, Slumberjack, and What So Not – he released his second solo album, FutureNever, in April 2022. The album, which included the single “I Feel Electric,” shot to Number 1 in Australia.
