A Queensland wedding singer has been granted bail after spending four months behind bars on charges of sexually assaulting eight women he met on dating apps and social media.

Daniel James Stoneman, 34, from Shailer Park in Logan, today applied for bail on 52 charges, including 24 counts of distributing intimate images, three counts of rape and one count each of attempting to commit rape, choking, recordings in breach of privacy and unlawful stalking.

His lawyer argued to the court that his client had been suicidal and had threats to his personal safety while in prison.

The court was told Stoneman was willing to abide by any conditions on his bail including a ban on dating apps, on social media, and of working in bars or as a singer, to reduce the risk of him reoffending.

Justice Thomas Bradley granted bail with strict conditions including that Stoneman abide by a night-time curfew, complete a relationship education course and live with his parents.
