Once groomed to be the 'John Cougar Mellencamp' of Canada by Duke St/MCA records, Danny Brooks celebrates the release of his 10th CD Texassippi Soul Man, produced by former Mink DeVille guitarist Louis X Erlanger, who has also produced R.L. Burnside.
Originally from Toronto Canada, Brooks relocated to Austin Texas two years ago and has been very well received. Of a recent show at the Austin City Limits Festival, Los Angeles 'Anti-Quiet Magazine' wrote" We caught some of Danny Brooks....the band was far more seasoned and skilled than any of the hipster darlings drawing crowds this weekend".
Brooks believes in leaving everything on the stage in his live performances and does not use lyric sheets on the final recording, giving a more pure and real performance.
