“Dan was an incredibly talented musician and composer, but most of all, he was a dear friend,” said Dexter’s executive producer Clyde Phillips. “His passing leaves all of us a bit quieter, a bit sadder, and without the gift of his music and his love.”

Other compositions for television included Kitchen Confidential, Jake in Progress, Deception, The Red Road and more.

Our thoughts are with Daniel's friends, family and colleagues at this time.
