My real name is Daan Smit, artist's name is maDSaint. When I was 14 years old I started playing guitar, and I think when I was about 19 I started experimenting with recording on PC. If I recall correctly that was on the first version of Cakewalk (yes I'm that old now).
In the meantime, I learned to play piano, accepted the fact that singing is not my strongest part, and the last couple of years I also started taking violin lessons.
In all those years I have been writing and recording a billion songs and some of them I even finished. For those interested, most of them can be found on Youtube or Spotify.
