Daniel J. Field was born May 29th 1982 and grew up in Warwick, Rhode Island. During his childhood, Dan became heavily influenced by music. His parents had an extensive collection of albums that he would immerse himself in daily. This expanded his influences at a young age to several styles including classical music, classic rock, hard rock, metal, hardcore, psychedelic, acoustic and almost anything in between. He first became interested in guitar around the age of 15. He took beginner lessons and rented his first acoustic guitar but that wasn’t going to last long. Soon after he received his first electric guitar that ignited a passion for learning all kinds of different music ranging from 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s bands. The early days involved collaborating with various musicians, learning covers, and ultimately being involved in the Rhode Island hardcore scene.
After moving to Connecticut at the age of 19, Dan became the lead guitarist of the Hartford based band ‘Migraine’. After ‘Migraine’ dismantled he worked in several collaborations and solo projects. He started getting involved in open mic events and working on singing as well as playing guitar. Dan helped form the band ‘Wreckless’, and played a variety of covers and some original music. Never being fully satisfied Dan searched Craigslist and stumbled across an ad for a band called Paragon. Dan left ‘Wreckless’ to focus his attention on what was to become Paragon Theorem with his longtime jamming partner bassist Travers Kenney.
