Danny started down a slippery slope when he first picked up a guitar. Little did he know the influence those six strings would have on his life. While he mainly plays guitar, bass, and bodhran, he's been known to dabble in a variety of other string and percussion instruments. If it can be plucked, strummed, bowed or struck he will eagerly strive to master it.

Based out of his hometown of St. Paul, MN, Danny is an elementary school wrangler by day, guitar slinger by night with a background in rock, jazz, Celtic and American folk, and classical music.

Danny has contributed his playing, writing, and arranging skills to a number of recordings, including The Northerly Gales’ 2017 album “Together” and 2022 album "Road Back Home."  In 2019, Danny released his first solo album, “Small Adventures.” He followed this up with the release of a number of solo acoustic singles, “Waltz for Early Spring // Another Rainy Day” in 2022 and “Our Scars” in 2023.

From pubs to clubs, from parks to theaters, Danny plays with numerous groups and individuals, most notably with Twin Cities-based Celtic/Americana band The Northerly Gales and Scottish Ceilidh band The Gunn Slingers, as well as on his own as a solo act.

Danny also runs the independent record label Small Adventures Records.
