Danny Katz: folk-pop with a twist. The bastard child of The Postal Service and Ben Folds, Katz has been writing, recording and performing original compositions on guitar, piano and voice for over 10 years. While his earliest influences were folk and rock groups like the Beatles and Peter, Paul and Mary, over the years they have grown to include artists as varied as Erasure, The Postal Service, Billy Joel, Coldplay, R.E.M., Ani Difranco and Spitz, a popular Japanese band. 'Strangely Beautiful' features the talents of many NYC musicians, including Jay Legaspi, and Soce - the Elemental Wizard. Much of the recording was done in Danny's home studio, with mixing by Aaron Nevezie and John Davis of The Bunker Studios in Brooklyn, where indie darlings Ambulance LTD recorded their most recent album. NYC fans are fortunate to have many opportunities to see Danny's live performances (often up to 15 a month), where he entertains with quirky, original material that covers topics as varied as his bizarre internet dating experiences, to his residency in a former brothel house. He further expounds on how both create challenges in finding and keeping true love in the city that never sleeps. He also keeps his performance calendar unpredictable with his unique 'theme' concerts - this year alone, he will produce an '80s and '90s live band karaoke night, a Transformers Tribute Night, two cabarets, an evening of Japanese pop music covers and will play shamisen (Japanese lute) at several Japanese Cherry Blossom festivals in the NY/Metropolitan area this spring. In support of 'Strangely Beautiful,' Danny is currently planning a US tour. If you'd like to have him perform where you live, please send him a note.
