Danny's passion for music began after his father's death to skin cancer when he was 11 years old. Danny's father was a man of the land, a farmer who struggled with drought his whole life, but had a love of singing and songwriting. Following his death, Danny vowed to focus on what his father loved- music.

A true individual, Danny has had some interesting life experiences, from teaching guitar in East Timor to living in isolation for a year with a peacock as his only companion. His vast life experience and extensive travel has helped broaden his songwriting influences, and he hopes The Voice will give him the opportunity to bring this to the world.
