Dayton and his music

MG Music welcomes NEW ARTIST Dayton...

biography

Dayton lives in Ashland, Oregon where he was born and raised. He began playing Harp for Hospice patients, families, caregivers and their fundraising events in California. At the time he was working as a Non-denominational, inter-faith, Spiritual Counselor for a non-profit Hospice in Northern California. Dayton's musical history extends into his early youth, playing in the orchestra in primary school, a jazz band in high school, progressing through university level training and many other musical projects including touring acts in bands through his twenties. Eventually, he felt the light of music burn very low and stopped playing everything except the guitar, mainly for the occasional Hospice Patient. It wasn't until hearing the beautiful sounds of the harp in new age music, that Dayton found a renewed vigor for music again. The inspiration to learn a whole new instrument for utilitarian purposes, and to give patients a more profound experience of peace was very driving. Dayton quickly picked up the instrument and began writing songs almost immediately with no formal training. He began recording songs and giving CDs to Hospice patients and Nursing facilities. It wasn't long before the Hospice organization and community took notice and asked him to play in events and to record more and more songs. Now, Dayton finds himself busy with everything Harp. Whether it is performing at wineries, weddings, restaurants or other venues, teaching, recording new music or playing Therapeutic Harp.
