A musician born and raised in Syracuse, New York in a musical family, Daniel Pugh has been playing piano since the age of five and performing since the age of seven.

This band performed at the Syracuse Jazz Festival and the OCC Jazz Festival, where Pugh received several awards for his outstanding musicianship and ability as a soloist.

Pugh attended Christian Brothers Academy of Syracuse and was awarded the Sarah Lombardi Award for Musical Excellence; upon graduation he was given the Semper Fidelis Award for Musical Excellence by the Marine Corps.
