The American artist grew up listening to Jurassic Five albums, his sister's Lauryn Hill album, and his South African parents' collection of Simon and Garfunkel, Stills, Crosby, and Nash & Young. These artists inspired his first attempts at composing songs, which eventually brought him fame and a high net worth. He was also inspired by a TV series and wrote 'Laura Palmer'. Apart from this, he wrote 'Durban Skies', inspired by his parent's love story.
The estimated net worth of Dan Smith is approximately $300 million. Most of this net worth is earned through his music career.

Dan Smith was born in London. Dan Smith studied at Kings College School in Wimbledon. He further studied at the University of Leeds where he majored in English literature. Since childhood, he has been interested in music. Dan Smith started writing songs on the piano and his laptop from the age of fifteen. Early on, he hid his musical abilities from his family. A friend coaxed him into participating in the Leeds Bright Young Things competition in 2007, in which he ended up as one of the finalists. Dan Smith did not achieve mainstream success in his solo project but continued writing songs for his solo project and with his close friend and roommate, Ralph Pelleymounter. Dan Smith came back to London after finishing his studies where he continued pursuing his profession and eventually formed Bastille with Kyle Simmons, Will Farquarson, and Chris 'Woody' Wood. Bastille has released four albums called 'Wild World', 'Give Me The Future', 'Doom Days', and 'Bad Blood', the latest of which was released on February 4, 2022.

Dan Smith writes and arranges covers and remixes along with some of Bastille's songs. Dan Smith worked with his friend Mark Crew to produce 'Bad Blood' and 'Wild World'. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Smith performed music live on Instagram in 2020 and set up a film club named Distraction Tactics, inspired by different countries worldwide. Each week, the club visits a different country and films. It aims to provide distraction and happiness to those in need of some relief from social distancing and isolation.
His novel, 'Big Game', which was released in 2015, is based on a major movie starring Samuel L. Jackson. His most recent novel for younger readers, 'Boy X', has won The Essex Book Award (2017), The Phoenix Book Award (2017), and the Coventry Inspiration Book Award (2017).
Dan Smith was obsessed with films from a young age, and he initially wanted to be a director or editor until he realized he was 'more of a fan than a filmmaker.'
