DNA Entertainment was founded by musician couple Daniel Walker (D) and Allison Hanlon (A)
DnA is an upbeat & dynamic Musician and Artist couple featuring the electrifying guitar of Dan Walker & the amazing vocal stylings and Graphic Visual Design of Allie Hanlon.
Dan and Allie were both individually well known for their artistic talents. In 2020, this couple decided they would join forces to bring their artistic talents together, where they both became the teacher to each other learning one another's craft. Thus DNA was born, the music collaboration of both their names. The result is the perfect blend and chemistry not seen since Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham's live performances. They are the leading forces behind DNA Duo, DNA Band and Big Love Band as well as DNA Entertainment WA.
Daniel Walker is a monster guitar player originating from New Zealand. He is popularly known for his electrifying acoustic solo live performances, having played on stages across the world. Although he enjoys smaller intimate gigs, Daniel has performed at major music festivals including Rhythm & Vines, The Guitar Festival at the Tacoma Dome, Multiple Blues Festivals and many other spectacular events with crowds from Ten to Thirty Thousand People. It was through these experiences Daniel honed his percussive guitar techniques with live looping combinations to excite the crowds. He creates an orchestra of sound on his guitar, a one man band. His driving rhythms and beautifully textured layers are the foundation of sound for DnA.
Allie is now recognized as a powerhouse female vocalist. Her ability to bring a room to tears and then excite the crowd is incredible to experience. Before DnA Allie was regarded as one of the finest visual artists in the EDM Festival scene, usually adorning performers with her Psychedelic Body Paint, Displaying the Meltamorphosis art gallery or live painting at events. She now channel’s her artistry to this duo as lead vocalist with a powerful, rich and sultry voice reminiscent to Gwen Stefani, Nora Jones & Beth Hart all in one. Allie expertly handles all of the visual elements for the band while Dan applies himself as the musical director.
By the end of 2022 this dynamic duo had performed more than 400 plus shows together. With the added elements of working with Local Irish Rock Band Slainte, the creations of DNABAND, BIG LOVE BAND (Fleetwood Mac Tribute) & DNA ENTERTAINMENT, every weekend was always booked solid.

With the help of DNA the Studio based in Mason County eventually grew its own Artist list and now books Music for multiple events and Venues in the area.
