British singer-songwriter Dan Sherington's driving force is his brother who has down syndrome and wishes to give him the best life

His ambitions run high when it comes to making it in the industry and has been pursuing his passion for as long as he can remember.

He gets his inspiration from great songwriters/producers such as The Beatles, Ed Sheeran, Mike Dean and Bryson Tiller. "My main driving force to be successful is my brother. He is 23 and has down syndrome." One day Dan wishes to be in a position to move his brother into his home with all the possible facilities needed to live his best life. "Meaning, my parents can enjoy some years together as they have done such a great job with me and my brother so I want to repay them by giving them a lifestyle everyone dreams of," he says.
