Danny Flowers

Danny Flowers may be best known for having penned classic hits for other artists, but as a solo artist his bluesy blend of raw emotion, combined with a heartfelt yearning, will speak to your very soul. Dannys instrumentality has also earned him a high level of notoriety in the industry. Eric Clapton said, I think this is tremendous. I consider Danny a good friend and a great musician in the truest, old school country-rock style. There is just not enough of this kind of stuff around any more. Flowers writing credits span several genres and his flexibility as a guitarist and wordsmith is well-known. He penned Tulsa Time which was a #1 hit for both Eric Clapton and Don Williams. Williams then had hits with Back In My Younger Days, Senorita, and To Be Your Man. Emmylou Harris recorded Before Believing as the title cut for her Pieces Of The Sky album. Gulf Coast Highway was recorded by Emmylou and Willie Nelson as well as by Nanci Griffith and Evangeline. Most recently Dannys I Was A Burden was recorded by Lee Ann Womack and the Blind Boys of Alabama. The list goes on. With all this under his belt, Flowers still manages to maintain the poise and humility of a Zen master while tossing off riffs with incredible taste and feeling reminiscent of Ry Cooders gospel-like grooves with the slide guitar virtuosity and delicate upper-register vocal vibratos of David Lindley.
