Danny Salazar grew up to be a crossover, multifaceted, talented musician, after spending his formative years in the border town of Eagle Pass, Texas. In Eagle Pass, Danny could walk to the Río Grande (Río Bravo) and look across the river to the Mexican town of Piedras Negras. At the age of 14, he began teaching himself to sing and play the guitar, drawing musical influences and styles from the wide range of music that his father listened to on the radio, including; cumbia, tejano, country, and pop. His diverse musical influences melded into songwriting at that same age. Raised by parents who spoke Spanish at home, Danny speaks and writes in both English and Spanish. Although most of his songs are written in Spanish, he manages to merge the simple and intensively affective resonance of both languages, appealing to the senses of people of all backgrounds and all ages while solemnly expressing his whole being and passionate humanity.
Danny began traveling when he came to Nashville in 2000, and continued his travels in México, visiting extended family in the state of Coahuila and seeking out the local variations of Latin music there as well as in other places, such as Yucatán, Veracruz, Morelia, Michoacán, and in other parts of México. Danny returned to Nashville in 2003 and began performing original music with his cousins, Eli Garcia, Isaias Garcia, and Isai Garcia, forming the band 'Los Kuatro'. His traveling days were not over, so he returned to Texas for a year before the lure of the Nashville music scene called him back.
Upon his return to Music City, Danny started a new band called, ‘Trova Urbana’. The music Danny writes and performs with his band combines distinctive elements of Latin music, derived from the variety of rhythms found in México, South America, and the Caribbean countries. Danny's goal is to make a positive impact through his music and to remain active in projects of social change for the betterment of the local community.
