Daniel Levi, the frontman of the Daniel Levi Band, finished second at the Eesti Laul final on Saturday evening. His performance of “Burning Lights” revved up the crowd, featured some sick crowd-surfing, and even had a selfie-esque ending with a camera zoomed in on his face. The American-born singer — he lived in Ohio — caught up with us at the Eesti Laul afterparty. He says he felt total comfort on the stage (and while riding the crowd), and adored the winning song from Elina & Stig. You can check out our brief chat below.
