BIOGRAPHY

ICB Portrait V1.jpg

Danny Mellin started 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 which match his already impressive back catalogue of songs.
His music firmly sits in the admittedly expansive ‘indie’ genre, which covers the wide range of songs he writes - from reflective, introspective ballads to melodic indie rock anthems, full of youthful energy and banging guitar riffs.

Danny has a long list of influences from the likes of The Beatles and Oasis through to current favourites such as Sam Fender and Arctic Monkeys which are all 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.​

Since his launch event for his EP, ‘Holding On’ at the Rapture music store in 2018, the stages Danny has graced have grown in size an status as his sound developed into what it is today. From playing in front of 7,000 people at Oxford’s South Park for JACK FM, to numerous festival stages and the O2 Academy in Oxford, Danny is building a following of loyal fans as he grows as an artist.


Danny has also received great support and airplay from a number of radio stations, including numerous plays on BBC Introducing and live sessions and interviews on BBC Radio Oxford.


Danny had a really exciting 2020 planned before COVID-19 struck! He had been back in the studio with his new band and a new producer and looking forward to a year of new releases, exciting gigs and festivals. Despite these difficult times, Danny and the band did manage to get into the studio between lockdowns and released three singles through the year. 

During lockdown, Danny has continued to write new songs and can't wait for the studio's doors to be reopened to record them and to eventually bring them to audiences as soon as it is safe to do so.
