Biography

In 2006, an 18 year old Danny California got his start (then known as Danzk8). Having little money to spare in college, Danny California started making his own beats to rap to. He began making countless beats and rapping whenever he wasn't studying. California made countless, miscellaneous songs without ever releasing a full project such as a mixtape, EP, or LP.

He developed a persona as a party entertainer with his jazzy, dance, europop style production and party themed lyrics. He began to make a name for himself around his university and began opening for many underground touring acts such as Eternal of the Wu-Tang Clan. This pattern continued all the way through graduation when he decided he wanted to be a full time musician.

After graduation in 2011, California (still known as Danzk8) released a full mixtape entitled Brief Introduction which generated decent internet buzz. However, he changed his name officially to Danny California after concluding that fans found Danzk8 too confusing to spell and pronounce. He has since released a single called "You, Me and a Bottle" and an EP "A Long, Lonely Summer".

Lyrics

You, Me and a Bottle

Written By: Dan Martinez

Verse 1:
You know we live for the moment, this place, this time, we own it/
This shot, this chase, we zoning, this dance is ours we know it/
Can't stop, we go all the way, if you listen to what I say/
There's no need to repeat me, like it's the life, c'est la vi/
This night, I'll be coming back, Just sit tight cuz I never back down/
Seen you from across the bar, looking so good you a superstar/
Got the drink in your hand, make me your man, then you tell me you're my number one fan/
Then I say alright, I say ok, that's game on, let's go play/

Chorus:
You, me and a bottle, that's what I want, cuz this is how we do, do, do, do, all I want is/
You, me and a bottle, looking like some models, it's what we do, do, do, do, it's how we living/
You, me and a bottle, that's what I want, cuz this is how we do, do, do, do, all I want is/
You, me and a bottle, looking like some models, it's what we do, do, do, do, it's how we living/

Verse 2:
I'm in love with is life, I'm in love with this drink/
I'm in love with this girl, I don't care what y'all think/
This just might be for now, it might not even last/
I'm a fighter by day, a lover at night, don't ask/
When this night hits a close, we'll be out of our clothes/
What'll happen tomorrow, nobody knows/
So let's just take it slow, and rest up on the pillow/
All night long in the flow, until the sun starts to show/

Chorus:
You, me and a bottle, that's what I want, cuz this is how we do, do, do, do, all I want is/
You, me and a bottle, looking like some models, it's what we do, do, do, do, it's how we living/
You, me and a bottle, that's what I want, cuz this is how we do, do, do, do, all I want is/
You, me and a bottle, looking like some models, it's what we do, do, do, do, it's how we living/

Verse 3:
Is it possible for me to even be myself/
Is it possible to be myself around you/
Your body and this liquor can't be good for my health/
But this is all I want, is to be right beside you/
And when it's all said and done, we'll be having some fun/
Spend a night in the stars, and live our days in the sun/
And when the time comes to show, when you need a hero/
Look no further than me, we be getting down low/

Chorus:
You, me and a bottle, that's what I want, cuz this is how we do, do, do, do, all I want is/
You, me and a bottle, looking like some models, it's what we do, do, do, do, it's how we living/
You, me and a bottle, that's what I want, cuz this is how we do, do, do, do, all I want is/
You, me and a bottle, looking like some models, it's what we do, do, do, do, it's how we living/

Verse 4:
So here we go again, I get myself in trouble, this temptation I have for you/
A sip of some henny and a shot of jack, you so damn hot I got a heart attack/
Let's get to the pool, then we'll move to the hot tub, pop a bottle, make some hot love/
Do the breast stroke, do the back stroke, hit the shower, I don't need soap/
Cuz I like it when we're being like this so dirty/
Bring it on, take me on, when you act so flirty/
So tell me what's a guy to do, how in the world can I resist you/
Acting so sexy, looking so gorgeous, baby what's your sign, maybe you could be my Taurus /

Chorus:
You, me and a bottle, that's what I want, cuz this is how we do, do, do, do, all I want is/
You, me and a bottle, looking like some models, it's what we do, do, do, do, it's how we living/
You, me and a bottle, that's what I want, cuz this is how we do, do, do, do, all I want is/
You, me and a bottle, looking like some models, it's what we do, do, do, do, it's how we living/

So c'mon baby, give it all for you/

Verse 1:
Yo this is for the ladies who ever had they heart beat/
who gave everything the ever had to a dead beat/
Just to get they spirit crushed and they feel the pain/
Feeling stuck, standing outside taking in the rain/
No worries you can use my umbrella eyy/
I'm always here for you it's the truth night and day/
I want to prove to you that we're not all bad/
If you let me show you the best time you've ever had/
You would see that there's still beauty in this world/
I can tell you that there's so much beauty in this girl/
There's nothing I can do, you take my breath away/
Like I need mouth to mouth would you mind helping me/
I can show what it's like to try and smile again/
Just you and me under the stars until the world ends/
Everything is right where it's supposed to be/
All that's left is you standing right close to me/

Chorus:
You my sunshine my moonlight/

Verse 2:
It's true when I say that it's you that I need/
You're the only one I wanted to take to dinner I can feed/
We can have a glass of wine, we can have a shot of whiskey/
When you're with me we can be so risky/
Business, I can be your tom cruise/
If I always bet on you, I'll bet I never lose/
What is this, no shirt no shoes/
If I always bet on you, I bet I'd never lose/

Chorus:
You my sunshine my moonlight/
My truth right, all I ever want/

My girlfriend, I do it all for you/
You my sunshine

Verse 3:
This is crazy, would you please be my baby/
My money's off my mind, what's on is this lady/
Hate me, love me, kiss me, hug me/
Date me, shove me, miss me, drug me/
Take me as your own and I'll take you in/
Make you my best friend, I'll wait till it sets in/
The sun, the moon, the stars, how have you been/
Cheeks so Rosy, we the modern day Jetsons/

Can't Let You Go

Written By: Dan Martinez

Chorus:
Did you know/
I just can't let you go/
And when you run/
I feel so slow/
I can't catch up to you/
However hard I try/
And losing you/
Is my worst crime/

Verse 1:
This is for the girl I just can't forget about/
I already tried too many times/
But no matter what I do/
I just can't seem to get her out of my mind/ heyyyy
I wish I was stronger, I wish I knew how to feel/
I just wish that I really knew how to deal/
Being torn in two different directions/
My heartstrings pulled by my affection/
It's already hard enough I got a girlfriend/
My head spins like I'm in a whirlwind/
Like what the **** am I supposed to do/
But, it's clear to me now I can't get over you/
I feel sick, I feel I got a weakness/
Am I even allowed to speak this/
Am I even allowed to beat this/
I just wanna know if I can even defeat this/

Chorus: (X2)
Did you know/
I just can't let you go/
And when you run/
I feel so slow/
I can't catch up to you/
However hard I try/
And losing you/
Is my worst crime/

Verse 2:
I think I'm moving on when we're not together/
I think I'm getting better each time that we're apart/
But each time that I see her/
It's like going back to the start/
We should just give it a chance/
It just may be the best romance/
The world will ever know we don't need to take it slow/
We could make up for all the time we lost in the past/

Chorus: (X2)
Did you know/
I just can't let you go/
And when you run/
I feel so slow/
I can't catch up to you/
However hard I try/
And losing you/
Is my worst crime/

Verse 1:
Ladies and gentlemen thank you for your mentions/
But you've given me enough just with your presence/
yeeeah, it's the greatest gift now/
I raise my glass take a sip what a trip wow/
Right now I feel so accomplished/
I knew that I'd be here someday with the strongest/
I just can't wipe the smile off my face/
It's ear to ear right here as I groove to the bass/
It don't really matter how tough my times are/
The brightness on the other side's never that far/
my happiness is immeasurable/
it's cut down to my core, right down to my soul/
I'm feeling so good just right now/
Doing what I can adjust the tight sound/
For all the haters that spun me right round/
How you like them apples now go ahead and bite down/

Rain, Rain, Go Away/
Come Again Another Day/
Rain, Rain, Go Away/
I'm Shining In My Own Way/

Verse 2:
It's a beautiful day and the sun is shining/
and I feel like I'm on top just like I'm ramen/
ain't nothing gonna bring me down/
not even my girl who just left town/
When people ask me if I think that me missed me/
I say I really doubt it but I'm feeling really pristine/
Didn't give a shit about me for two months/
well fuck it, what's your name girl lets do lunch/
Roll with me cuz I'm on the list/
Always rocking the spot just like a geologist/ Heyyyyyyyy
It's no lie yes I promise this/
We can just hang out like some hominids/
and feeling real privileged like Obama kids/
we be winners at the auctions with silent bids/
we can party all night jamming all my hits/
I don't want to do good like some silences/

Chorus:
Rain, Rain, Go Away/
Come Again Another Day/
Rain, Rain, Go Away/
I'm Shining In My Own Way/
Rain, Rain, Go Away/
Come Again Another Day/
Rain, Rain, Go Away/
I'm Smiling Cuz This My Day/
