In the 1970s you would frequently find Danny Hooper, his parents and three sisters belting out some of their favourite tunes around the kitchen table.
This led to guitar lessons with his dad at the age of ten and it wasn’t long before he strummed his first song, Banks of the Ohio.
In 2005 Danny was inspired to reignite his dream to become a household name in Australian country music.
His debut single, Every Reason, was played throughout Australia where it made number 37 on the Top 100 Country Hits chart.
In 2012 Danny won the back-to-back TSA Award for Best Contemporary Song with You Don’t Need Wings To Fly penned for his friend Sam Bailey.
Already Gone On Hillcrest 62: This track was promoted with Ross Allen at Hillcrest Radio Canada on Hillcrest 62. Danny now performs at private and corporate functions where he sings mostly cover songs.
He recorded and released his debut solo album, The Legacy, in 2007. Featuring 12 original songs the album name and its title track are a tribute to his father and is also a signal to the legacy of music Danny will pass onto his own children.
