Daniel Grimmett is a music entrepreneur, business consultant, and host of the Music Pro Daily podcast. He spent nearly a decade cutting his teeth in Los Angeles and Nashville where he launched one of the first fully-remote music production companies in 2012 (The Songwriting Team).
The company went on to produce over 1000 songs for various artists (including the Billboard charting record "I Am" by Juliette Reily), YouTubers, podcasts, labels (Armada), television (ABC), music agencies (Resin8), musicals, and Fortune 500 companies (Marriott International). During his tenure Daniel grew the business to 7-figures in revenue, providing many new jobs to music creators in the community.
During this time Daniel also explored digital entrepreneurship... Acquiring a sample pack company called Woodshed Audio (2016), launching a platform for pop instrumentals called Anthemize (2014), and co-founding Make Pop Music with producer Austin Hull (2016).
In 2018 he shifted his focus away from The Songwriting Team and spent 3 years in the trenches doing 1-on-1 business consulting for music producers (as Dark Label Music). In 2021 he partnered with Mike Mani to turn Dark Label Music into a full-blown business development company for working music producers. Daniel is currently based in North Carolina and lives with his thoughts and his dog Jolene.
