Danny Burns Inks Deal With Bonfire Music Group For Sophomore Project Featuring Lead Single Available September 15th
Nashville, Tenn. – Rising Americana singer Danny Burns just inked a new deal with Bonfire Music Group for the singer/songwriter’s upcoming record. Set for release in early 2021, fans can expect Burns to pick up right where he left off following his highly successful and critically-acclaimed debut album North Country. The hitmaker is gearing up for the release of the forthcoming project’s lead single “Many Moons Ago” featuring Sarah Jarosz, which drops on September 15.
“North Country took about 5 years to complete, and was pretty much wrapped in 2018,” says Danny Burns. “These new and older songs, and new recordings / collaborations came about a fair bit quicker. I was eager to expand on North Country, and get to work digging in with some other heroes of mine, ranging from artists and players to engineers. I think we’ve pushed to expand the sounds and landscapes, and I’m excited to share what we’ve been cookin’ up!”
Burns burst onto the national scene with the release of his early 2019 album North Country. The collection turned many heads, securing praise and coverage in top publications like Rolling Stone, CMT, American Songwriter, Billboard, No Depression and more. The star-studded collection saw Burns teaming with top artists like Dan Tyminski, Tift Merritt, Holly Williams, Mindy Smith, Cara Dillon, Tim O’Brien, Critter Fuqua and Chessboxer. North Country was accompanied by a major North American tour, which saw Burns performing at select cities in the United States including New York City, Washington DC, Boston, New Orleans, Nashville, Philadelphia and more.
Two decades before releasing his 2019 debut, Burns kicked off his career as a traveling Folk singer, logging shows on both sides of the Atlantic. He’s been on the road ever since, sharpening a sound that mixes the folk traditions of his native Ireland with diverse American influences. Raised in a family of working musicians, Burns spent his childhood in the Irish county of Donegal. He grew up surrounded by singers and instrumentalists, receiving a first-class education in Irish folk music along the way. It was a communal experience, filled with Folk songs that had been passed down from one generation to the next.
