Straight off the back of releasing his EP Streets of Nowhere, with great support from the likes of Dave Gilyeat at BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio’s Charlie Ashcroft, Oxford’s own Danny Mellin is not slowing down anytime soon. After playing an already impressive range of shows and festivals in cities across the UK with his band, including a euphoric debut at Truck Festival, his biggest headline shows to date at The Bullingdon in Oxford and Sheffield's legendary Leadmill and a UK tour supporting Jake Clemons of the E Street Band, Danny is hitting the road once again next spring with a new tour.
Described by Chalkpit Records as having ‘solidified his own blend of guitar focused indie’, Danny’s sound is strong in its youthful energy and anthemic choruses, winning over crowds with his observational, self-aware lyricism and hooky guitar riffs to create an exciting live act.
Danny has also received great support and airplay from a number of radio stations across the UK, including numerous plays on BBC Introducing and live sessions and interviews on BBC Radio Oxford.
Follow him on his social medial platforms to keep up to speed with the latest news.
