Danny Click has been called an “unsung guitar hero” with “amazing songs” (Austin American Statesman). His guitar playing has been compared to the best of the best: Lowell George, Duane Allman, David Lindley, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Beginning in the 1990s in Austin, Texas, and continuing on the west coast, Danny developed an interest in the blues and has since settled into a guitar-oriented brand of country rock and blues. With influence running the gamut from country to blues, southern rock and singer-songwriter, Danny Click’s sound is truly ‘Americana.'
Think Tom Petty crossed with Wilco, spiced with the southern tradition of Lucinda Williams and North Mississippi All Stars. Add to that Click's searing guitar and you've got a winning mix.
His last studio CD, Life Is A Good Place (which stayed on radio charts for over 12 consecutive months), put Click squarely in the upper echelon musically and lyrically. From its radio-perfect songs to the sparse stories taken from real life, it leaves you filled with hope and a new respect for the human condition.
Fast forward to 2013. After four previous records and literally hundreds of gigs on the road, Click's latest single, "Baptize Me Over Elvis Presley’s Grave," went to #9 and stayed in the top 10 for the entire month of October. The music video is on CMT and is a viral share online.
Captured Live!, Danny’s fifth album reached the 2014 Grammy Ballot. The band returned to the studio in Spring 2015 to record their latest album with the legendary Grammy Award-winning producer Jim Scott.
“...Lots of artists try to do the same thing, but Click gets into the heart of the matter with honesty and passion.” - Art Thompson, Guitar Player Magazine
“…Whatever Americana turns out to be, Click will definitely fall within its boundaries, and may even help expand them outward a little.” - Christopher Hess, The Austin Chronicle
“A worthy set to flow in the Mellencamp/Springsteen wake. If reality shows don’t do it for you, this is the reality you’ve been waiting to check into. Well done.” - Chris Spector, Midwest Record
