Europe’s leading Blues & Rock publication, Classic Rock’s The Blues Magazine, recently called Danny a "National Blues Treasure", a title that he has worked tirelessly and passionately to earn. Riding high on the European blues scene for over a decade, yet still only 35, Danny has carved a name for himself the old-fashioned way having played over 2000 club and festival shows to his many fans around the world and is acknowledged by those in the business as one of the cream of the crop.

Following many sold out club tours across Europe and numerous major festival appearances that have seen the power trio perform on the same bill as such names as Joe Cocker, Carlos Santana, Buddy Guy and Peter Green to mention a few; Danny and his band have steadily carved a huge and loyal fan base around the world.

In a career already littered with many highlights, December 2013 saw the release of the Danny Bryant signature guitar, Fret-King Corona DBR. Fret-King is one of the industry-leading guitar brands designed by master guitar builder and innovator, Trev Wilkinson.

In 2007 Danny signed with Rounder Records and released three highly successful albums with this Label, all of which topped the iTunes and Amazon blues charts in many countries. In 2009 Danny signed a licensing deal with Virgin/EMI Asia and a track from his 2007 release, ‘Live’, was included on a compilation CD entitled "The Best Blues Album In The World Ever". Danny was featured alongside many giants of Blues, including Johnny Winter, Gary Moore, Albert Collins, Walter Trout and ZZ Top.

February 2010 saw the release of Danny’s break-through album "Just As I Am', hitting Blues charts all across the continent and receiving glowing reviews from the international music press. The album caught the ear of German based label Jazzhaus records leading Danny to ink a deal with the dynamic new label.

The highly anticipated live DVD/CD “Night Life” was released in March 2012. Recorded in The Netherlands it captures the band doing what they do best, “Bryant has the kind of magic fingers that ensure the long solo sections on this live disc keep you teetering on the edge of your seat… Thrilling.” Classic Rock Mag

Following the success of “Night Life”, Danny signed a further two album deal with Jazzhaus Records and in April/May 2013 released his 7th studio album, ‘Hurricane’.

‘Hurricane’, produced by Richard Hammerton, pushed Danny to a new recording high both vocally and through the melodic yet gutsy guitar, but most noticeably it was his songwriting that caught the ears of the mainstream press. Critically acclaimed by both the blues/rock and guitar media, it was the respect from the mainstream music-world that has helped Danny to attain his highest sales figures thus far and make ‘Hurricane’ his best selling album.

August 2014 saw Danny head to the USA to tour extensively for 5 weeks fronting Walter Trouts band while the ailing blues legend recovered from liver transplant surgery. Before returning home to start promoting his own brand new album which included shows across Europe, an appearance at the Nanjing International Jazz & World Music Festival in China plus a show at the prestigious London Blues Fest at The Royal Albert Hall.

Dannys latest album, Temperature Rising, was released in September 2014 to glowing reviews. Guitar & Bass Mag called it ‘A blues rock gem.’ Leading website music-news.com awarded it 5 stars and said it was ‘Just stunning’. The album appeared in many end of year ‘best of’ lists for 2014, most notably chosen by Amazon Germany/Austria/Switzerland as one of their top picks of 2014. This lead
to 'Temperature Rising' returning to the number 1 spot on the blues download chart and staying there for over 6 weeks, ahead of such acclaimed artists as Johnny Winter, Joe Bonamassa & Buddy Guy. Having out sold his previous bestseller, Hurricane, within the first three months after release, the success of Temperature Rising is apparent in its sales figures. This is the album that has moved Danny to a new arena.
