Danny & Jimmy / Bio

Danny Canales (Born On February 19, 1991) Jimmy Canales (Born On March 25, 1992) In Arlington VA. Son of Juan Canales and Maria Ramirez. Danny & Jimmy known for the hit song "Dime Que Hago" by the duo Jimmy El Intocable & Kelvin El Inalcanzable, also featuring Eric D Advakidd, and Tito Flow. Danny & Jimmy raised around music, there father had a background of singing as well as there mother who danced and sang when they were children as well. The Canales Bros began singing when they were 8 & 7. Influenced by what their parents listened to but what influenced them as well were the songs of the backstreet boys. This made them start to sing anywhere they went. As time passed they didn't only listen to that anymore but there knowledge expand hearing other sounds like hip-hop, rap, r&b, latin & etc.

Danny & Jimmy were know for performing at there high school whenever there were talent shows or any other event at school. Both at that point stayed singing, they both began writing songs to instrumentals, but they didn't let anyone listen. Danny thought it wasnt the right time to begin that process of letting others listen to what they wrote. He felt it just needed to be a process before they could show there public this is what we do. He just felt for now they should do cover songs of other artist and perform them since that was something that they learned really fast.

On Danny's birthday his father bought him his 1st professional recording microphone. That was the moment Danny knew it was time to begin a new chapter in his life with all the work he and his brother had been practicing for. Towards the end of Danny's high school year He had recorded a song with his friend Eric (now known as Eric D Advakidd) to the instrumental "Overtime" by Ace Hood. It was the first time they would perform a original song to there classmates. They called the song "Prom Night" when the time came it was there prom night. They didn't know the reaction of there classmates but when they were called to stage they performed the song blowing there classmates. This was the beginning for him and his group in a long journey for what they wanted to take worldwide.

Once Danny was out of high school he established a music company own by him called "Optimistic Records". The name came from one thing he always had on his mind "when things are bad just keep your head up and just know you tried". Later he searched for a meaning that was close enough to what he believed, a friend gave him the name Optimistic right there He liked the word and Right there Optimistic Records was born.

The next step for Danny would be to find his artistic name he had various difficulties finding it till one day he said to himself "I am optimistic so how about optimistico in spanish" right there and then the artist Danny "El Optimistico" was what he would be known as from there till the end.

Danny & Jimmy have had various influences in there lives since they were kids but their parents were the most influential people of there life. The Style Both Of These Brothers Sing is very different to what you hear on the radio or anywhere. You will never find them talking about drugs, sex, or women in a disrespectful manner. they understand its what people are use to hearing in order to sell music but they don't need to follow that direction. Danny released his first original album in June of 2010 called Danny "El Optimistico" Presents - Even In The Eyes Of Reality.
