At the age of twelve, Danny McGaw was wandering the streets of his native Manchester, England when the world took shape in his eyes. He chanced upon a guy playing a Nick Drake cover on a sidewalk. “There was something about the way his voice and guitar whisked us away for just a moment. It united all these strangers in a very intimate way.”
It wasn’t long before Danny asked his father for a guitar and began writing music. And for the past twelve years, he has followed that same acoustic guitar across an ocean and continent. At twenty, he found his way to Los Angeles where his street performances and club gigs have been helping people escape one song at a time.
Punctuated by a uniquely textured voice that is at once gentle and melodic, thunderous and soul sweeping, Danny’s lyrics read like a map to the core of the human experience. They are stories about life, love, the people he knows and the places he goes. And in his raw honesty, universal themes and poignant lyrical imagery the audience can see themselves right there living that story along with him.
Lyrically he is an original, with a solid voice that is distinct and memorable," says L.A. Times.
"This young man knows how to captivate a crowd with his six-string guitar and honest lyrics," wrote LA Weekly.
