About Danny

Danny moved to London from Sheffield in 1979 to pursue his career as a musician, joining John Martyn’s band making five albums and touring extensively.

Pop success followed, including a world tour with Wham! which led to a long association with George Michael.

In 1991 Danny played on the Dire Straits ‘On Every Street’ Album subsequently touring with the band, and has since played drums, percussion and sung backing vocals with Mark Knopfler including the ‘Down the Road Wherever’ Tour in 2019.

Danny has worked with a diverse list of artists, from the hugely famous to the defiantly left-of-centre. He has played on the streets of Dakar in Senegal and recorded with More Kante, Salif Keita and Youssou N’Dour.

More recently, Danny has been song writing as well as playing, singing, programming and working on studio collaborations.
