Biography

Danko Jones’ career now spans four full-length albums (2002’s Born A Lion, 2003’s We Sweat Blood, and 2005’s Sleep Is The Enemy, 2008’s Never Too Loud), numerous EPs, collections, and compilation cuts (1996-1999), and multiple Juno Award nominations (Canada’s version of the Grammy).

Danko Jones have attained genuine rock hero status in Europe over the past five years. Their no holds barred performance style has made them now-permanent and much-loved fixtures on the huge European rock festival circuit (Lowlands, Rock Im Park, Rock Am Ring, Wacken Open Air, Rock Werchter, Hultsfred, Leeds and Reading just to name a few), and they regularly sell-out increasingly larger venues on their own European headline tours. They’ve also made fans of some of their heroes, with Danko being invited on two separate occasions to perform with Motorhead. In 2006 the Raconteurs covered the Danko original “Samuel Sin” on their European tour, much to the surprise of JC and Dan, who made the discovery while in the audience at one of their shows. All three members of Danko Jones saw it as “a huge compliment”.

The charismatic Danko prowls world stages like a panther in heat. Exuding soul, sweat, and sex appeal, this riveting performer comes across as a dream hybrid of Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, Phil Lynott, Sam Cooke and Gene Simmons (that tongue!).He and his two comrades have the right attitude too. “You’re only as good as your last show. There is that constant need to impress every single time we go out there. I believe we’re yet to play our best show.”
