NASHVILLE MUSIC PRODUCER THAT HELPS

ARTISTS AND SONGWRITERS 

RE-SHAPE THE WAY THEY

CREATE AND PROMOTE THEIR SONGS

NASHVILLE, TN

If you've arrived on my site, chances are that you are an artist, singer, or both who has put out some great songs in the past, only to be let down by the lack of buzz and attention you feel your songs deserve. Some people will try to tell you that all you need is a great song, and that their production or mix or master is all that's really holding you back in your career. They say things like "If we put out the right song, with the right sounds, people will spread the word and the song will promote itself!". By now you've probably figured out that this line of thinking is misinformed at best, and flat out bull shit more realistically. Lets be honest, if you want to create professional sounding songs, there are a ton of great producers out there who can do that for you. BUT, If you want to create professional sounding songs with someone who has a knack for finding and maintaining what truly makes you unique as an artist, can help you formulate a plan to get your songs heard and guide you towards ways to make money on your music, (like licensing opporunites) AND you want to do that with a long-haired, easy going, Mexican food-loving fellow such as myself, then let's set up a time to chat and see if we'd be a good fit for each other!

PEOPLE I'VE WORKED WITH SAY:

"Danny has honestly breathed life back into my career as an artist/songwriter. He is incredibly collaborative, supportive of new ideas and communicates clearly & effectively when an idea isn't really working very well. Not to mention his own ingenuity as a musician AND an engineer! Danny has taken my melodies from rough audio recordings on my cell phone to fully produced, stylized & relevant songs. Can't express enough how thankful I am to be working with him!"
"Working with Danny is such a pleasure! As a songwriter, I specialize in lyrics and melody and can have trouble hearing what would create the best full track. Danny has taken every idea I’ve sent his way and brought it to life in a way I couldn’t have imagined! He is so receptive to ideas while taking the initiative to create the best track possible. Every tune sounds radio-ready and have led to some of my favorite releases to date!"

Have a great idea for a song, but need to get it past the "good idea" stage? Let's actualize that idea together and create an amazing sounding song that you are proud to release!

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Hello, I’m Danny! I’m a Nashville songwriter and producer that helps artists and other songwriters create modern, commercially competitive productions while finding what makes them truly unique and memorable. I have written original songs that have appeared on ABC, The Travel Channel, WWE Network, Netflix Original Series “The Innocents”, The Food Network, Sportsnet Central, HGTV, and various indie film releases. I also wrote WWE wrestler Tony Nese's theme song "Buried In The Static” and the theme song for the official podcast of the Milwaukee Bucks. I've co-written with many artists including Clint Lowery of the grammy nominated hard rock band, Sevendust, as well as South African Idols finalist Adeline Mocke, and many other rising stars in the industry. I've also toured the country as the lead guitarist for Universal Recording Artist, Austin John (Ex. lead singer of Hinder), Milwaukee funk legend Charles Walker, currently tour the country with Nashville's Chris Weaver (2015 winner of Nashville Music Industry Awards 'Best Music Duo or Group' and 'Best Live Country Performers') and have played hundreds of shows with my original rock band, Lost In A Name, including spots at the world’s largest music festival, Summerfest. My greatest skill, however, is probably giving hugs and eating authentic Mexican steak tacos. If I'm not out touring or in a studio session writing and producing, you can probably find me playing my guitar, grilling out in the back yard, or playing basketball at the gym.

 

That all sounds great, but what is working with ME specifically like? The truth is, you can count on me to always give you my professional opinion and make informed suggestions based on my years of experience, BUT you can also count on me to keep the production process fun, easy-going, and rich with “That’s what she said” jokes and obscure references to early Simpsons episodes. I take my work very seriously, and am honored to help fellow artists and songwriters create truly great art, packaged in a way that sounds modern, professional, and commercially competitive. I am NOT, however, a type-A, know it all, “I’m the smartest person in the room” type producer who is more concerned with pumping out “products” than creating art and building friendships. An open, honest, and collaborative relationship is vital to creating the best version of your vision, and I’m committed to working with artists and songwriters who are on the same page. (and share my immature, 3rd grade fart humor)

OK COOL, BUT WHY WORK WITH ME?
