Coming from a long line of musicians, you could say that music is part of Danny’s DNA.
His love for playing the guitar manifested itself at the tender age of 7, when Danny showed an exceptional aptitude and skill for the instrument. By the age of 13 he was performing live with his father’s band, which lead to him recording his very first record a year later.
The same year, Danny was accepted to the Academy of Contemporary Music, breaking the record for the youngest person to do so. This caught the attention of the Academy director, Bruce Dickinson, who put him forward for their most advanced course. This recognised Danny as a prodigious talent as well as a record breaker. Danny carried on with his schooling all the way to A Levels. By graduation he had played hundreds of shows all over the U.K., supporting and playing alongside some of the worlds most renowned guitarists.
