Danny hails from a small French community outside of Ottawa, Canada. His powerful voice carries a distinctive timbre that seems to reach up from somewhere deep in the American south, grabs you by the soul and drags you onto the dance floor. While his Québécois joie-de-vivre and passion lives on in each of his songs, Danny seldom strays far from his country roots where he finds his muse in the back roads, deep woods, pristine lakes and bountiful fields.
Danny is not sure, when he found music, or if music found him, but he has been writing and performing his own songs since the age of ten. He is also keen to point out that everything he listens to, his life and his surroundings, directs his musical development in some way. John Fogerty, Waylon Jennings and Keith Urban are among his greatest influences. Danny’s guiding principles are “Where words fail, music speaks”.
Danny has performed on many different stages from Toronto to Montreal, and from Nashville, home to the Ottawa Valley. Danny’s touring schedule has been increasing relentlessly, and he is now finding himself more in demand in both English and French Canada.
