Hailing from Hamtramck, Michigan, Danny D literally grew up in the center of Detroit Rock City. Playing his own music since a young age, Danny has matured with the inspiration of his Rock-n-Roll roots and the insight that comes from age and experience. Still Got The Boy In Me is Danny D’s third album and is packed with a long list of Detroit legendary talent: Mark Farner from Grand Funk; Bob Seger’s Silver Bullet Band alumni Drew Abbott, Robyn Robins, Alto Reed and Shaun Murphy; Rod Stewart guitarist Paul Warren; rapper HUSH; blues legends Johnnie Bassett and Darryl Lee; Jimmie Bones; and Howling Diablos frontman Tino Gross, as well as Eliza Neals, Carly Hartwell, James Niemi, Jeff Scafone, Dave Shelton and Glen Short.
Danny D's music has been a vital outlet for his personal expression since age seven, when he was diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome, which is characterized by involuntary movements and vocalizations. It's like having someone else in your body doing these things and you can't control it, explains Danny. Danny D's singing and performing became more important when he noticed how his symptoms decreased dramatically, or did not appear at all. He became even more determined to be successful and to become the best musician he could be by taking piano and vocal lessons, music theory, as well as writing and recording his own songs.
After spending over 20 years creating a successful vending business in Detroit, Danny has decided to share his inspiration once again, forming a band called The Vagabonds sporting some of Detroit's most talented performers, Danny D now releases an entirely new CD Still Got The Boy In Me with new songs and his host of collaborative motor city talent, and introduces this powerhouse CD with this video for How You Rolling D? Check it out. You’ll catch yourself singing it in your head all day. Guaranteed!
