Danny Starr has spent several years honing his songwriting craft and developing a unique and personal style that is immediately recognisable as his own. Since he started writing at 14, Danny has blended the raw gut-wrenching emotion of inspirations such as Amy Winehouse and Ben Howard with the in-depth storytelling of Passenger and Arctic Monkeys. And it is this affinity for storytelling that makes Danny’s live performances unique, at which he tells a new story at each show using his original songs to soundtrack the plot he describes in the breaks between the songs.
Danny’s music, which mixes indie-rock with acoustic songwriting and soulful lyrics has gained substantial attention from across the globe, including ongoing support from BBC Introducing. Over the last few years, since the success of his single ‘Double Red Line’, particularly in Canada and Brazil, Danny’s fan base has continued to grow, leading to multiple sell-out headline tour dates and much excitement surrounding his upcoming project. The first track of this project is Danny’s most personal yet, through which he drops his guard and opens up about his difficulties with his mental health, which as for many were accentuated during the lockdown of early last year.
Kicking off 2021 Danny released a series of live video recordings of previously unreleased songs, filmed at Cargo Rooms, which along with an upcoming single release is set to send him on a huge next step forward in the industry. Following 2 sell-out headline shows at Oslo Hackney, Danny has just announced another night of storytelling at The Grace, London in October 2021.
