DANGER VAIN is a refreshing brew of techno elements, a touch of the blues,a diverse range of vocal nuances, and rock and roll guitar power that brings an exciting and colorful groove experience to the listener. Sweet and soulful vocal melodies, heavy guitar riffage and solos, and entrancing groove assaults encompass this artists' diverse and fun-loving musical platform.
Controversial and daring, Danger Vain also explores topics in his music that inspire inner reflection to some, but may also challenge the status quo in others. In a word, "depth" is the goal and passion in Danger Vain's music. Anthems like "Only Human" on Danger Vain's ONLY HUMAN album explore the beauty of humanism and its' authenticity, while other songs like "Psycho Itch" explore the wounding and the healing of it. Of course there are brash innuendo bits like "Tease Me" and "Hound Dog" that explore a different kind of depth, and bring us full circle to the fun loving, sexual, and mischievous nature of what Danger Vain music is all about...
Danger Vain is a musical artist presently residing in Red Deer, Alberta, located in Canada. His passion lies in singing, guitar playing, and composing. Of course the icing on his 'cake' ultimately lies in performing, and connecting with his diverse musical fanbase, which spreads over a few different genres.
Though mainly influenced by both techno and hard rock, Danger Vain's list of musical inspirations is as diverse as it is long. Artists like Jimi Hendrix, Kiss, the Edge, Jimmy Page, The Cult, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Zakk Wilde, Slash, Nine Inch Nails, White Zombie, Skindred, and Yngwie J. Malmsteen, line Danger's guitar heritage.
Vocally, Danger Vain is inspired by artists like Robert Plant, the sadly missed Freddie Mercury, Christina Aguilera, Paul Stanley of Kiss, David Coverdale, Sting, Madonna, Prince,Steven Tyler, Rob Zombie, Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani, Seal, Vince Neil of Motley Crue, Steven Perry, Dave Matthews, Ozzy Osbourne, Trent Reznor, and of course, the late great Elvis Presley.
The compositional styling of Danger Vain is expressionistic in its form, and works to combine techno groove with guitar power and a "blues meets raw" vocality.
" I grew up musically during a time when shred was dying, country rock was booming, and the alternative scene was birthing. Techno was still going strong, and I wanted to hit the clubs that had the wildest women, so dance music kind of grew on me. I wouldn't throw down my leather for a Stetson, and I wouldn't pawn off my Ibanez for a Gretsch, so the result became my musical evolution."
Danger is big on writing as well. " I like exploring my humanity when it comes to writing, you know. Sometimes it's something I'm dealing with, or something I'm choosing not to deal with, but you can be sure it's been on my mind before it hits the paper."
An avid conspiracy theorist and anarchist, Danger Vain is not afraid to speak out when it comes to the Status Quo.
"I'm working hard to keep it restrained somewhat... It's hard to touch on the taboo topics in music or in conversation and get the message across when most people are scared to bring them up themselves. Music isn't the purpose for that kind of subject matter, but it can be a comfortable medium for sure..."
