The new EP
Danny Mellin has been writing and performing his own music from a very young age, releasing his first song 'Without You' at just 14 years old. Since then he has grown as a writer and an artist and now, backed by his band, he has played an impressive range of gigs and festivals to match his already impressive back catalogue of songs.
His music firmly sits in the ‘indie’ genre with influences from the likes of The Beatles and Oasis through to current favourites such as Sam Fender and Arctic Monkeys – all of which are reflected in Danny’s sound. There are also echoes of Willie J Healey, The Vaccines and The Magic Gang in the songs, fusing together to produce something unique, relatable and authentic.
During lockdown, Danny continued to write new songs and as soon as the studio's doors reopened he was back recording again with new releases planned for 2021, including a new EP. Now with live music slowly returning - Danny is excited to be able to bring these new songs to audiences.
