Daniel Paul Johns (born 22 April 1979) is an Australian vocalist, composer, guitarist, and pianist, best known as frontman of the rock band Silverchair. He is also part of The Dissociatives. In 2007, he was ranked at number 18 on Rolling Stone's list of The Twenty-Five Most Underrated Guitarists.
Growing up in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, his interest for music started when he was 8. He, Ben Gillies and Chris Joannou formed their band at the age of 12, originally named the Innocent Criminals.
The band's career began when they were just 14 years old, signing to Murmur Records in 1994 after their demo "Tomorrow" won a competition by the SBS TV program Nomad. The single was then picked up by radio network Triple J. Their first album release was Frogstomp, in 1995.
