Danny Starr is a 20-year-old singer-songwriter from London. His two EPs have been featured on BBC Radio 1 Introducing, Amazing Radio and major blogs and radio worldwide, where Danny’s exceptional lyric writing and heartfelt vocal delivery have found scores of high profile fans.
Danny’s well-crafted pop songs cover a lot of ground the roots of which are in eras well before his time, take for example new single ‘Plastic Magic’ out 21st June. James Taylor and Jeff Buckley’s footsteps effortlessly lead to London where Danny mixes melody and rhyme into a soundtrack of poignant millennial longing. Never afraid to tackle big, demanding issues, Danny has the incredible knack of turning everyday observations into earworms with deep meaning.
Danny Starr is a regular on London’s singer-songwriter circuit and has played The Great Escape as well as Frank Turner’s Lost Evenings Festival at The Roundhouse and Reverbnation’s Discover nights, who also recruited Danny to their Connect programme. He has appeared on Sofar Sounds and his own headline show at Notting Hill Arts Club was sold out.
‘Plastic Magic’ sounds a bit like The Divine Comedy’s best pop moments but for a new generation, oozing style and desperation in equal measure. Ed Harcourt meets The 1975’s Matt Healy perhaps.
