This award-winning folk rock songwriter trained with the very best. He is not only a breakout star from NBC’s The Voice, but also an alumnus of Strathmore’s own Artist in Residence program. Elements of Danoff’s music have been likened to that of Paul Simon, James Taylor, John Mayer, and The Wallflowers. His work is lyrically driven but underscored by memorable hooks and upbeat, rock ’n’ roll energy. In August 2015, Danoff released his single “No Such Thing,” which took home first prize in the American Songwriter Magazine Lyric Writing Contest. But as Adam Levine noted, seeing this heartwarming artist perform is even better than hearing him.
