London born and bred from Syrian & Irish blood, Danny Starr has cultivated a talent for dreaming up attention-grabbing melodies and thought-provoking lyrics that are immediately identifiable as his own; Blending the heartbreaking emotion of inspirations such as Amy Winehouse and Paolo Nutini with the fine storytelling of Passenger and Arctic Monkeys. In his later releases, the years of trawling through Motown records in his dad’s collection comes through in moving bass lines and gospel-backed choruses.
The themes of Danny’s music touch upon the trials of love, escape, belonging, and more, which are woven into the lyrics with honest bluntness, and gripping imagery. In an ongoing battle with anxiety, writing about the unexpected twists and turns of life is an essential outlet for him.
Danny’s releases have garnered the support of the likes of BBC Introducing in the UK, Rolling Stone Magazine in France, and a wide range of media outlets in the USA, South America, and Canada.
The attention for the records has led to a headline UK tour, several sellout London dates, and a rapidly growing list of festival and major venue support slots, with Danny’s full band live show being a highly desired booking for promoters across the country.
Electronic music producers have also begun bringing Danny onto projects, introducing his songwriting and vocal style to a new genre. He performed Call To You at Ultra Miami 2022 with Gareth Emery.
