Life is a journey filled with surprises. Who would have thought that a last minute call-up would shoot Dan Reynolds & Co. to international fame and recognition? The “Imagine Dragons” front-man would have least expected to fill in for a 3 time Grammy winning band, like “Train”, but destiny had other plans for Dan and his band. Here is a quick summary of Dan Reynolds net worth in 2018.
Dan Reynolds’ Early Life
Seventh of the nine children in the household, Daniel Coulter Reynolds was born on July 14th, 1987 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Daniel is a 4th generation native of Nevada. Being an active Catholic (a Mormon), Dan is a member of “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” and at a tender age of 19, he volunteered as a missionary for a couple of years in Nebraska. As a student, Dan excelled in academics. He graduated from the Bonanza High School and attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, but later transferred to Brigham Young University, where he was deported a week before the start of his freshman year, after admitting to premarital intercourse with his high school girlfriend. However, he did manage to enrol a year later, after he completed the mission in Nebraska.
Dan Reynolds married fellow musician Aja Volkman in 2011 and they have 3 daughters together. However, after 7 years of marriage, they called it quits. Dan was also diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis in 2015 and he later revealed that he had been depressed for a couple of years.
Dan Reynolds’ Career, Awards & Achievement
Dan Reynolds always had a soft corner for music and had always wanted to become a professional musician, but in the early days, there was a noticeable reluctance, which was partially due to the opinion of his future bandmate, Wayne Sermon. Dan realised that he couldn’t make anything, but music and thus, committed himself to it until the big break in 2010, when he got to fill in for “Train” at a music festival because their frontman fell sick just hours prior to the performance.
“Imagine Dragons”, with Dan at the helm, roped in Interscope Records in 2011 and released their first studio album a year later. Their debut album titled “Night Visions” won the Billboard Music Award for Top Rock Album. Since then, they have been making music that has touched the audience.
Dan Reynolds also formed a band called “Egyptian” in 2010, where he met his future wife Aja. They created just 4 tracks together and that was the end for the band, but a start of a fruitful association.

As an individual, Dan Reynolds has won the “Hal David Starlight Award” being a young upcoming musician and the “ Trevor Hero Award” for his support towards the LGBTQ community. With “Imagine Dragons”, he has won a Grammy, 3 American Music Awards and 5 Billboard Music Awards.

Net Worth of Dan Reynolds
