Daniel attended Newcastle High School and during his time there was already playing in a band, originally called The Innocent Criminals. They would record a demo of their song “Tomorrow” which won a competition held by the television program “Nomad”. They soon changed their name to Silverchair, and would get a deal with Sony Music for three albums in 1994. The following year they released the album “Frogstomp”, and the song “Tomorrow” would earn a significant popularity in Australia. In 1997 they released “Freak Show”, and followed it up with “Neon Ballroom”. His net worth was increasing quickly at this point. In 2002, they released the album “Diorama”, but would then go on a long hiatus.

During the hiatus, Daniel worked on numerous side projects including The Dissociatives. The duo released the EP “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Rock”, and would go on tour to promote their songs. In 2005, Silverchair reunited and then worked on the album “Young Modern” which was released two years later. In 2011, the band then went on another hiatus and Johns would work on a film called “my Mind’s Own Melody”. In 2012, he then worked on the soundtrack “Atlas” for Qantas Airlines, and worked with The Veronicas and rapper 360 too. He then released a new song as a solo artist entitled “Aerial Love”, followed by his debut album called “Talk” released in 2015. The album featured a mix of numerous genres, and peaked in second spot on the ARIA Albums Chart, also finding popularity in several other countries. In 2016, he then collaborated with Slumberjack in the song “Open Fire”. His continued projects have all helped in his steady rise in net worth.

For his personal life, it is known that Daniel married longtime girlfriend Natalie Imbruglia in 2002, but they divorced in 2008 citing not spending enough time together as the reason. He’s also had a relationship with model Louise Van der Vorst, and fashion designer Estelita Huijer. Johns is a vegan and is known for his animal rights support. He’s also been diagnosed with anorexia nervosa and reactive arthritis while touring with Silverchair. He’s had several controversies throughout his career including a claim that Johns had taken a joint with Bono, Natalie Imbruglia and Peter Garrett which was later referred to as a joke. He was arrested in 2014 for driving under the influence which resulted in a fine; he apologized for the event and attended a traffic offenders program.
