Daniel Donskoy, a cosmopolitan actor and musician with roots in Moscow, Berlin, Tel Aviv and London shows no signs of stopping after the release of his single 24.
Robbed Me continues his way through a world of electronic infused R&B with retro pads and vintage drum samples. Daniel takes us into the sound world of the late ‘90s, urging us to reminisce about that carefree time and feeling bereft after a very intense relationship ended.
Daniel is a fully independent artist with a lifelong passion for composing and writing music. Alongside his musical career, he works tirelessly as an actor, becoming a household name in several countries and amassing a loyal following on social media. His ambition landed him the lead role in a successful German prime time production, as well as starring in HBO’s Strike Back, BBC‘s Detectorists and the world renowned Netflix series The Crown.
