If you have ever seen Danny & the Champions of the World or the earlier Grand Drive play live, then you will know what a fabulous songwriter and frontman Danny George Wilson is. In 2016 Danny & the Champs swept the boards at the first UK Americana Awards, winning with Album, Artist and Song of the Year.
So, roll forward to 2021 and Danny has a new album ‘Another Place’ and a new single ‘Can You Feel Me?’ which shows a new side to Danny as he takes a wander into fresh territory and puts a new spin on his much-loved sound and signature songwriting.
For this show Danny has brought together a brilliant band of musicians from his new album. They will be playing new tunes from the album as well as some of the Danny and the Champs and Grand Union favourites. What a treat to have all three incarnations in one evening!
This radically surprising new solo album from Danny presents a vibrant and diverse collection of startling, impressionistic songs created in collaboration with Sussex-based, studio wizard Hamish Benjamin. It’s a collision of straightforward, traditional songwriting with experimentation bringing a fresh and engrossing magic, enabling some of Danny’s most romantic songs ever but equally some of his most unhinged.
“Some things remain constant… not least Wilson’s unfailing feel for Southern/Celtic soul melodies, and his eloquence of sentiment never allowing affection for his inspirations to lead him in the direction of pointless pastiche when he could break your heart or make you smile instead” MOJO
