Vice President of Creative and Sr. Music Producer, Dan oversees creative operations and marketing at Riptide, with focus on A&R, DIVER label roster (a new Riptide division focused on record label services for synch), music licensing and publishing, custom composition, production, Incubator collaborations, and studio operations. From running Riptide’s studio to lead client creative liaison for the advertising, film, TV, trailer, and video game industries, Silver is instrumental in presenting the artists and songs to the creative community.
Well-versed in multiple music styles and keeping a tasteful ear to the ground for undiscovered talent at all times, Dan is key to Riptide Music Group’s growing catalog, providing a unique perspective to A&R and the strategic planning and marketing of new artist signings. Instrumental in implementing DIVER, the launch was announced with their partnership with Dine Alone Records.
An entrepreneurial spirited creative professional, with over twenty years experience in the music and entertainment industries, Dan shares a major passion for the art of music creation and curation.
As a musician and producer, he loves the old school process of music creation in a proper recording studio with microphones, mic pre’s, amps and pedals, drums, and synths with lots of knobs! He spends endless hours creating and collaborating in his space, Victory Road Studio. Known as Silver Sessions, he specializes as a record producer and remixer for independent and major artists, song writer, collaborator, audio engineer, mixer, sonic colorist, sound designer, and composer. Dan’s own music and sound design can be heard in campaigns for Thor: Ragnarok, Wonder Woman, Lexus, Carl's Jr., War For The Planet Of The Apes, and shows like Shameless, Broad City, and Banshee, and more. Dan also performs guitar and synths with his band MOON, a 2-piece alternative-desert-rock band with singer and drummer Chelsea Davis.
Also, a co-founder of Quantum Collective - an innovative music marketing company that promotes and develops live music shows and branded events, Silver is the talent curator and exec producer of its annual Southwest Invasion, held on the rooftop at the Whole Foods Market flagship headquarters in Austin TX. The company’s success in putting together the right brands, the right artists, and the right audience has made QC a leader in producing in-demand experiential concerts and festivals.
