Canadian Coast To Coast is presented by The Eagle River Casino and Travel Plaza in Whitecourt.
My Special Guest is Danny from the Danny Thompson Band.
Danny Thompson has been riding high following 2 US nominations as Best New Country Artist by Nashville New Music Weekly for the single Miles & Miles in 2016, and best new AC artist of the year for his single Day without Progress in 2017. However, he’s no newcomer to the music scene.
Danny has been writing and performing for more than four decades. After working with the group Contraband on the Belaire record label under the direction of Bob Cousins back in the eighties, he joined Lenny Wilde’s Shotgun Record label. 4 songs on Danny’s first album, Rockin’ Myself to Sleep, made onto the charts. One cut in particular, Small Town Blues was played on radio stations all across Europe including the BBC lasting over 4 months.
Danny will tell us about songwriting, performing, his daughter, and the band’s new tune “Southern Shine”.
