Danny Donnelly, a California native, was born in Anaheim California in 1968. Raised between Orange and Los Angeles Counties, he began working as a professional musician at the age of 16. Danny’s passion for music was solidified with a pair of Music Degrees from both Long Beach City College and the University of Southern California.
Over the last 30 years, Danny has released ten solo albums, worked as a session musician for a number of artists, produced music for film and television, as well as producing over a dozen artist’s personal albums in the gospel and indie folk genre. He has toured both nationally and internationally as a solo artist and as a sideman playing guitar and singing with artists Kenny Loggins, Peter Himmelman, Ellis Paul, The Kry, and many more.
From 2004 to 2014, Danny worked as the Worship Pastor at Metro Calvary in Roseville, California. Now coming full circle, Danny is once again living in the greater Los Angeles area. Along with his wife and 3 children, Danny is eagerly exploring his new location as he continues as a professional musician writing songs, playing lots of guitars, singing, producing records, composing, teaching master classes/workshops at local universities and national conferences, writing, recording and producing his own albums.
One of Danny's most recent recordings 'Christmas in LA' is a beautiful picture of friends re-connecting and making new friends over playing and recording a truly original sounding collection Christmas classics and original material.
