DANNY GRUFF + guests
Welsh-Born, London-based singer songwriter Danny Gruff has been writing songs of Love, Misfortune and Home Comforts since 2007. In just over 7 years, Danny hasn’t stopped gigging, recording and releasing fresh material. Most recently, Danny went to Platinum selling studio, Sticky Studios (Ed Sheeran, Paloma Faith, One Direction) to record his latest offering ‘Optimist’. Though the EP is a change in the usual Folk Rock style, it shows growth as an artist and writer. The lead single ‘Smile’ from this EP has been his most successful to date with radio play on BBC introducing and other community stations. The video also has over 4000 views.
In recent years, Danny has been played on countless tours as a support artists playing venues between 100 and 800 capacity, most of which have been sold out. Some of these shows have been alongside artists such as Bastille, Charlie Simpson, King Blues, Mcfly, James Bourne (McBusted) as well as other popular Youtube Artists. This live experience has enabled Danny to learn his craft as a performer and earned him a reputation as a charismatic and engaging performer.
In 2015, Danny is currently undertaking a challenge of writing a song every week for a year. This has been labelled #DannyGruffONTAW. All of this will be documented with videos and an online blog.
