| Danny Brooks is a consummate professional who truly
believes the least he can do for his audience is to give his best. And
it shows! For the past five years, everywhere Brooks has performed, he
has been asked back, due to his attitude of "give 'em everything you got
and then some".
Danny Brooks' active song writing and performing career
has spanned almost three decades and has taken him across Canada and into
the United States, where Danny has shared the stage with such luminaries
as Brownie McGee (who once told Danny "Son fo a white boy, you sho' 'nuf
got a tan on the inside), David Wilcox, The Beach Boys, Rik Emmett, Weepin'
Willie and others. A recent trip to Atlanta Georgia (Eddies Attic) garnered
Danny first runner up in a competition of 22 U.S. songwriters. Brooks was
the only Canadian asked to participate. Jim Dickinson, Legendary Memphis
Producer, says "Danny's voice tells you he's been through the pain of experience
and the promise of hope. North American folk sounds that go beyond fashion
or trend. Part of a tradition as old as the New World Frontier. He tears
away at the text of today's world with the vision of the true believer
I know him to be. His songs say it all.
Brooks' previous three CD's have received excellent reviews.
Al Handa, The Delta Snake, has reviewed two of Danny Brooks' CDs to much
acclaim, those being It's a Southern Thing, his previous release on Southern
Jule Records, and Rough, Raw and Simple, Duke Street Records, released
in 1993. Danny's 1990 release, "After the Storm", netted him a Canadian
Juno Nomination for "Most Promising Male Vocalist". It's a Southern Thing
has also received stellar reviews from RPM, Real Blues, Cub Koda, Blues
Editor, All-Music Guide and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's web
