Abigail Brown - Wildlife Photographer and Film Director
"I worked with Danny during the production of my film "A Wild Life on the Road" and I wouldn't think twice about working with him again in the future. His professionalism and attention to detail really made him a pleasure to work with. He was able to take my ideas and make them a reality whilst also incorporating his own unique style, creating a beautifully finished piece of music which really enhanced the overall feel of the film. I would definitely recommend Danny to anybody looking for a creative and versatile composer."
Andy Stott - RNCM Head of Popular Music & former MD in London's West End
"Danny first came on my radar 3 years ago as an enthusiastic undergraduate who wanted to broaden his skill set and experience by arranging for the RNCM Session Orchestra (a 40 piece ensemble performing everything from Stevie Wonder to Beyonce) - the first impressive thing… he took himself out of his comfort zone and actively went looking for work. Danny’s arrangements for the RNCM Session Orchestra were always flawless, showing great accuracy and creative flair - the second impressive thing… no need for corrections or revisions (essential when working to tight project deadlines).
"The confidence I had in Danny’s abilities, coupled with the fact that he is entirely reliable and professional in everything he does, led to me commissioning him to compose original music for the RNCM Session Orchestra to perform at the Manchester Theatre Awards and to orchestrate a young composer’s work for a live TV performance on the BBC’s Music Day - the third impressive thing… the ability to meet a brief with confidence and originality.
"I believe Danny has all of the qualities to succeed as a freelance composer, orchestrator and arranger - and most importantly he is a nice guy who is a joy to work with."
Katie Chatburn - Composer for Film, Radio and Concert Music, and Music Educator
"Danny worked with me as assistant orchestrator on ‘This Beautiful Fantastic’ – he showed an amazing ability to work to at an excellent standard, to tight deadlines - and whilst keeping a professional and always cheery demeanour! I couldn’t recommend him highly enough."
