I am an award-winning composer-lyricist for musical theatre, as well as an acclaimed voice performer.

• Winner, Audiofile Earphones Award for "In The Realm Of Hungry Ghosts" • From the AudioFile Magazine review of "The Shadow Killer": "Narrator Daniel Maté is terrific as Charlie, who is blunt when necessary but also warm and truly caring of his callers. The other radio staff members and callers are also distinctive and realistic. As the tension rises, so does the tension in Maté's delivery." • From the Audiofile review of "Hungry Ghosts": "Along with his authentic-sounding dialogue Daniel Mate's performance is notable for its emotional resonance with the author's patients and their journeys. His audible compassion makes us hear these stories and consider this information with an open heart. His engagement with the author's writing makes this a moving invitation to the complex world of addictions." • From the Audiofile review of "When The Body Says No": "Without slipping into melodrama, Daniel Mate's splendid reading conveys real empathy for patients suffering with chronic, difficult-to-treat medical disorders such as MS, arthritis, IBS, or cancer. He sounds equally engaged with the author's pleasingly philosophical abstractions, which he keeps down to earth with conversational phrasing and a caring vibe. It's a reading that helps plant the book's thought-provoking ideas in deep places." • From the Scripted Genius review of "Hold On To Your Kids": "Maté's narration is an excellent match for the text. His performance is at a medium pace, and excels the text as a seemingly-interactive teaching lesson for parents. Unique as an engaging educational audiobook for parenting, Maté's voice is alluring and insists parents continue listening to, and implement, the practices mentioned. This audio scores an easy five stars with its inflection that seems to mimic the text so closely that one could almost call Maté either an actor or a secret author…" • From the AudioFile Magazine review of "Hold On To Your Kids": "Daniel Maté's pleasing voice and authentic phrasing make this sophisticated discussion sound as accessible as it is enlightening. His tone, which is perfect for a behavioral science work, is serious and respectful. He understands the material fully and conveys a warm connection with the intentions of the authors.”
