Danny McGaw is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and sound-engineer based in Ojai, California, currently touring with legendary Vocal Hall of Fame inductees, Three Dog Night.
Danny’s voice packs an emotional charge that commands any room. Whether it’s intimate acoustic ballads or explosive folk rock anthems, his incisive lyrics and emotional intensity leave an unforgettable impression.
Combining a practicing athlete’s approach with an eclectic taste for a wide array of musical styles, Danny has also benefitted from close relationships he developed with celebrated composer and producer, Greg Townley, (Black Hawk Down, Sideways) as well as being fortunate enough to have spent considerable time in the studio with legendary drummer/engineer/producer Simon Phillips (The Who, Toto, Mick Jagger).
Five well-received albums later, Danny’s latest record, “On The Outside,” was produced by Grammy Winner Tim V. Hutton, (Jimmy Cliff, Three Dog Night, Sugar Ray) and incorporates a lush sound inspired by the Britpop of Danny’s childhood — big hooks, guitars, harmonies, and a punk-like energy. The songs cover a stylistic range — from open-throated anthems to folkie pin-drop intimacy.
The title song on the album, “On The Outside,” was featured in the Panavision Spirit Award winner, “The Good Catholic.” (Danny Glover, Wrenn Schmidt, John C McGinley). Danny’s original compositions have also been heard on major networks including Netflix, VH1, and NBC. Not one to be limited by recordings, film and TV, Danny’s song “You and Me” was selected as a companion song for a book, as well — “Collusion” by New York Times best-selling author, Nomi Prins. Danny has recently inked a new deal to record for indie label Santa Barbara Records. His latest record ‘Stranger Passing Through’is scheduled for release, summer 2022.
