Danny Hooper, country music singer, would frequently be found in the 1970s with 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. It wasn’t long before he strummed his first song, Banks of the Ohio.
During 2005 Danny Hooper was inspired to reignite his dream to become a household name in Australia. His debut single ‘Every Reason‘ was played throughout Australia where it made number 37 on the Top 100 Country Hits chart. Already Gone was a track considered by Ross Allen at Hillcrest Radio Canada on Hillcrest 62.
Danny now performs at private and corporate functions where he sings mostly cover songs.

‘Banks of the Ohio’, also known as ‘Down on the Banks of the Ohio‘ and ‘I’ll Never Be Yours’, is a 19th-century murder ballad, written by unknown authors.
The lyrics tell of “Willie” who invites his young lover for a walk during which she rejects his marriage proposal and once they are alone on the river bank, he murders the young woman. The song was first recorded by country musicians in 1927 and has been performed by many country and folk singers since.
