Daniel Wesley is a Canadian rock band from White Rock, British Columbia. The band is fronted by singer and namesake Daniel Wesley.

Singer and guitarist Wesley was born c. 1981 in White Rock and raised in Brookswood, British Columbia, singing in choirs since elementary school and being part of ukulele and concert bands in high school. At age 15 he formed his first band, The Dropouts, and later was front man of the bands General Mayhem, Audiophile, and Replica. He previously worked as an electrician prior to his success as a musician. He now lives in Vancouver. He recorded the 2006 album Outlaw in Langley and the follow up "Sing & Dance" in 2007. Also later in 2007 recorded the solo disc "Driftin". Currently recording his latest album due this summer, look for Daniel Wesley to be touring the world for years to come. The bands influences are Mason Jennings, Bob Marley, The Beatles and Pearl Jam.

The band's most successful single has been "Ooh Ohh", from the album Sing and Dance. The Province rock music critic Tom Harrison wrote: "Sing and Dance has a prominent reggae element but there is also an unvarnished rock sound that sometimes recalls Neil Young.

Daniel Wesley and Rebel Emergency play their first all ages/licenced show in Kingston, on Friday June 25 at Time to Laugh, 394 Princess, Kingston.
