"I have been playing Fret-King guitars at every live show and recording session since I acquired my first Corona SP 60 back in 2005. To have my own DB model in the Fret-King Black Label range is a dream come true and for me a huge honour! I believe Fret-King guitars are the finest instruments one can find anywhere and at any price. The FKV6DBR incorporates aspects of every great usable sound I have ever wanted. From crystal clear single coils to a full-on screaming humbucker, from a fat vintage-sounding P90 to a country-style twang, this guitar really does it all - and with class. It feels and plays like a dream. Trev Wilkinson has created the guitar I always dreamed of someday finding."
Joe Bonamassa - “A fantastic guitar player… able to take a guitar and really make it sing…”
Classic Rock Blues “… a new career high for Bryant. It lives up to its name and fully-deserves to blow the house down.”
Europe’s leading Blues & Rock publication, Classic Rock Blues, 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 32, 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, Ken Bryant – bass guitar and Trevor Barr – drums, have steadily carved a huge and loyal fan base around the world.
In a career already littered with many highlights, Summer 2013 will see 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.
So far the band have released nine internationally acclaimed CDs, in 2007 they 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 their 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 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 so far and make ‘Hurricane’ his best selling album.
