Biography

ingerstyle guitarist Danny Combs is a nationally recognized Solid Air Records recording artist and Grammy nominated Nashville based teacher. His debut album, Guitar Out Front, has received critical acclaim. The Nashville City Paper writes “Combs emphasizes melodic development, pacing and grabbing listeners through complete presentation rather than flashes and fireworks …clearly a master technician…” and The Minor 7th states, “…Combs captures the essence of modern fingerstyle song craft.”

Danny has a heart for teaching. He holds a Bachelors degree in Music and a Masters degree in Teaching Music. He teaches guitar classes and private lessons in Nashville. He has written about his experience teaching inner city students which was published in Acoustic Guitar Magazine. For two years he served on the board of Music4TNKids and helped raise over $100,000 to support music education programs in Middle Tennessee.

In addition to writing and recording his own music and teaching, he played classical guitar on the critically acclaimed sophomore record, "The King in a Rookery" (Hawley/Provident/Sony) by Pivitplex which CCM Magazine called "...an unbelievable alternative pop power masterpiece." He has also done guitar editing and arranging for multiple books, most notably The Christian Life Hymnal – The Accompanist Edition for Martingale Music and Hendrickson Publishers.
