"A Rising Talent"

“Danny comes from Manchester, England. His rock tracks show off the strength and clarity of his voice. It also shows that a truly good song will be able to stand on it's own merits with just a lone vocalist with a single instrument.

...with a solid voice that is distinct and memorable, and a lyrical concept that is relevant for the events we see in the world…

Lyrically it's apparent this singer pours his heart into the composing process as well as his mind as the lyrics are intelligent and well thought out. Danny genuinely means what he sings also clearly shines through in the vocal performance, which is half the goal in writing songs, the other goal is getting people to take the words to heart, which is subjective to the listener.

His songs are quite simple and pure. Danny McGaw is a rising talent to watch, I have no doubt we will see and hear more good things from this artist.”

Danny McGaw was born in working class Manchester in the north of England. He left school at 16 to pursue a professional soccer career, but when injury brought a premature end to his childhood dream, he packed his gear and his guitar and hit the road. Soccer’s loss was music’s gain.

Mcgaw is a natural born musician. Without benefit of any musical lessons, McGaw plays many instruments. He plays each with a deftness and maturity that belie his youth.

From Manchester, to the Isle of Jersey, to Los Angeles, to Kansas City, Danny has been amassing fans with his unique brand of original music sometimes with a band, sometimes as a solo artist. His soon to be released CD showcases his latest original works includes moving ballads alongside joyful upbeat celebrations of life.

Danny has written and recorded with the famous producer Terry Melcher (son of Doris Day). His music can be heard alongside Tori Amos in the Sundance film festival hit “New York Waiting.”

A prolific songwriter, rarely a day goes by that Danny isn’t creating a new melody and haunting lyrics. Danny is based in Kansas City for the near future writing, producing and performing in area venues.
