A 90s star was in one of the biggest bands at the time and sold 200million records, before swapping that life to become a house flipper.
Musician and songwriter Daniel Jones, now 50, was part of 90s music group Savage Garden.
The band was founded in 1993 by Daniel and Darren Hayes, but they publicly split in 2001.
Savage Garden had singles including To The Moon And Back, and Truly Madly Deeply, but their second album was their last after releasing it two years before announcing the split.
The albums sold millions of copies, but Daniel notoriously hated touring.
But changing his career up entirely, Daniel told News.com.au that he’s flipping houses, and said: “I’m pretty good on the tools and quite hands on. I’ve always thoroughly enjoyed doing hard work.
“I’ll be painting one day, putting up stud work one day, plastering theday. I’m doing that on houses mainly through Las Vegas where I purchase them at a low deflated price and then hold onto them and flip them.
“I’ve got a small crew who work with me … for me. It’s so far away from music right?”
But as well as putting his all into his house flipping career, the star also shares hisat being a father and husband.
Daniel is married to Kathleen de Leon Jones, who is an actress, dancer, and singer who was a part of award winning Australian children’s musical group Hi-5.
The pair married in 2005 and share two daughters together.
Daniel added: “I’m number one a father, number two a husband and number three I dabble in property. Music is sitting on the backburner now. I still enjoy it, I still write and record and play around with it purely for fun, the same way I did 20 years ago with Darren.
“But I don’t take it as seriously any more as far as the dream I dreamt. Which I realised wasn’t really my ideal dream.
“The dream I’m dreaming now is another one I’ve dreamt but I’m happy and that is a family. Two beautiful daughters and a beautiful wife, everything’s good.”
