Move aside, Ed Sheeran, there is another red-haired, freckled musician headed for the big music scene…
And… he can dance.
Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Danny Malone can not only sing and play several instruments; he’s a dancer as well. His dance moves, according to his record label’s site, are neither borrowed nor stolen, and are “so powerful, they have brought peace to warring peoples, joy to the depressed, and a cure for sickness.”
Malone’s musical career started at the young age of 13 when he began songwriting. Throughout the years, he’s developed this skill, releasing raw, emotional, poetic songs that possess the folksy quality of storytelling. According to Music Worth Reviewing, the Texan’s upcoming release, Balloons, due out June 4 as an independently released affair, is a “powerful tour de force of vulnerable personal biography and insightful musings about life.”
His songs blend together different genres which seem to be on opposite sides of the music spectrum – folk, indie, alternative country, electro and some hip-hop, providing a unique sound that matches the eclectic personality of its creator.
Malone is scheduled to perform at SXSW this weekend, so if you’re headed that way, be sure to check him out. You’ll be in for quite the show – raw, intimate songs, one-of-a-kind dance moves – all from a musician with character and stage presence.
His finalized show schedule can be found on his official site.
