FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Uptown Artist Group Announces the
Addition of Acclaimed Americana Artist DANNY BURNS to its Roster
April 12, 2021, Kansas City, MO – Award-winning Americana artist Danny Burns has signed exclusively with Uptown Artist Group (UAG) for booking representation.
Raised in a family of working musicians, Danny Burns grew up surrounded by singers and instrumentalists in the Irish county of Donegal. “It was never about one specific musician,” he remembers. “It was about listening and learning. It was about playing a song, then passing the guitar to the person beside you, and hearing them play a song, too. There was no ego involved.”
Burns burst onto the scene in 2019 with his critically acclaimed debut album, North Country. Two decades of honing his talent as a traveling folk singer and logging thousands of shows on both sides of the Atlantic sharpened Burns’ sound into a mix of folk traditions from his native Ireland and the diverse influences of American music.
Burns’ energetic live performances, each jam-packed with traditional melodies, timeless songs from his original album, North Country, and his current Americana & Country chart sensations Hurricane and Trouble continue to captivate audiences around the world. Danny Burns consistently receives broad, nationwide radio play, critical reviews (Rolling Stone, CMT, American Songwriter, Billboard Magazine, No Depression), and video rotations on Country Music Television (CMT).
Burns is available for festivals, fairs, and clubs starting in Summer 2021.
