Daniel Zapata – ‘In My Dreams’

Daniel Zapata, originally from Bogota, Colombia, is now based in Miami, and is making a name for himself with his own music, and also by collaborating with and producing other Latin pop artists.

The bilingual singer/songwriter and producer is a disciplined musician, who first started learning guitar at the age of 12. Daniel sees it as his aim to write uplifting songs, which spread love.

Daniel has shared the stage with pop chart luminaries such as Phil Collins, Richard Marx, and Laura Pausini (for the Little Dreams Foundation), as well as Latin celebrities like Andres Cepeda, Vilma Palma e Vampiros, and Prisioneros. He’s seen a lot of airplay on the radio stations of his home town of Medellin, Colombia, and other coastal cities like Monteria. Daniel has been recording with a slew of Grammy winners: musicians, engineers, and producers including Rudy Perez, Dan Warner, Lee Levin and Peter Wallace.

His latest single, ‘In My Dreams’ (‘En Mis Sueños’), sees him team up with multi-Latin Grammy winner, Iker Gastaminza.

‘In My Dreams’ was originally written in Spanish, but wrote an English version with the hope of spreading his music with a wider audience. The track comes with a video produced by Christian Jaillier of Panther Films, and features Zapata and his bandmates performing. We also see Daniel dreaming of his love, with the desire that they could make the moment last forever.
