Danno Simpson at Cassie’s
Danno Simpson was born in Dallas, TX, and raised on the high plains of Colorado. Growing up in a town where the local rodeo was the biggest event of the year, country music was a constant in his up-brining. Drawing his influence from Texas songwriting legends (Towns Van Zandt, Guy Clark & Willis Alan Ramsey) and the mountain music of the Rocky Mountains, Danno creates story-driven narratives that pay homage to the past while connecting with modern audiences. With a powerful voice that harkens back to the southern soul singers of yesterday and a songwriting style described as, “timeless”.
Cutting his teeth in the dusty cowboy bars of Colorado and Wyoming; Danno’s start was anything but easy. From dive bars all across the United States, and theaters in the Rocky Mountains, to headlining his own show at Luckenbach, TX; Danno continues to perfect his craft and continues to put in the miles, remaining authentic and honest in his music. Doing things the “old-fashioned way” has garnered Danno a grassroots and passionate following.
His powerful voice, well-crafted songwriting, and versatility as a performer have placed Danno on stage with multiple national acts from a variety of genres: Reckless Kelly (Red Dirt), Mike and The Moonpies (Country-Rock), Willi Carlisle (Folk), Jeremy Pinnell (Honky-Tonk), Jason Eady (Singer-Songwriter) and Caroline Spence (Americana). Danno was recently featured on WhiskeyRiff as one of “Fifteen Country Artists That Should Be More Well Known Then They Are” (2022). Danno Simpson is somebody you should definitely have on your radar.
