Danny Trashville grew up in the music-rich environments of rural Oklahoma and Nashville,Tennessee where he learned to value traditional music styles amid the innovation of some of country music's greatest legends. His performance career began as lead guitarist with various bands before deciding to focus on writing his own material as a solo performer. Drawing on his country roots, Danny has found solid outlet for his own guitar pickin' vision of Americana with songs spanning barroom tales, cultural satire, and introspective journeys.
He released his self-titled debut album in 2009 and spent the next year bringing his music to a growing fan base at over 250 shows. In 2011, Danny returned to his favorite songwriting haven, a small acreage near Pink,Oklahoma to work on new material for his next album titled "The Great Unknown". The songs represent a new direction in Trashville's ever expanding horizons. From gypsy jazz and folk ballads, to rowdy songs that make a statement on consumerism. Once again, there's something for everybody. His music is hard to put in a specific “genre”. Sometimes described as Alternative Folk, Alt-Country, Roots Rock, and of course the old stand by “Americana”. One thing is for sure. It's different!
In 2013 he headed back east to his “other hometown”, Franklin, Tennessee to perform and start production on the new album. He was asked to join the New Jersey based rock band Hudson Falcons, who he had previously performed with in 2012. They hit the road for a nationwide tour in late March with Danny on guitar. He played 60+shows with the Falcons, opening many shows with his own acoustic set. Then it was back to the studio to record & mix the last few tracks of the album, which is now in post production and scheduled for a September release. Danny Trashville has become a seasoned songwriter/performer with a commanding stage presence. Catch him live and you're sure to leave with a big ole smile on your face, singin' his tunes all the way home!
Watch for "The Great Unknown"...... coming September of 2013 !!!!
