Charles N. Daniels

Real Name:
Charles Neil Daniels
Charles N. Daniels (born April 12, 1878, Leavenworth, Kansas, USA – died January 23, 1943, Los Angeles, California, USA) was an American composer, occasional lyricist, and music publishing executive.

He employed many pseudonyms, including Neil Moret, Jules Lemare, L'Albert, Paul Bertrand, Julian Strauss, and Sidney Carter. His creative work is generally credited as "Moret" while his business dealings and ASCAP membership were under the name Daniels. He was born in Leavenworth, Kansas, and brought up in Saint Joseph and Kansas City, Missouri. At 18 he won a prize for his composition "Margery", which was performed by John Philip Sousa's band. By 1899, Daniels was such a celebrity that when Carl Hoffman published the sheet music for Scott Joplin's "Original Rags," he made a point to credit Daniels as the arranger. It's not known if Daniels actually arranged the piece or merely transcribed it. In 1904 he started the Daniels and Russel publishing firm in Saint Louis, later forming his own firm and working as an executive with Jerome H. Remick & Co.. In 1928 he wrote the music for the song "She's Funny That Way", to words that Richard Whiting wrote as a gift to his wife. He composed many other songs.
