  • Biography 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 and vocalist. Drawing on his country roots, Danny has found a 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. While scaling back live performances in 2011, Danny has been working on finishing material for his next album.

Most importantly, every song is honest and direct, allowing audience and performer to engage in a true musical moment.
