Danny Paul Grody is a solo musician and founding member of San Francisco based bands Tarentel and The Drift. He is a self taught guitarist, and the melodies at the core of Danny’s songwriting bring to mind his love of West African kora, Takoma style fingerpicking and all things minimal, repetitive & hypnotic.
His first solo album Fountain was released in 2010 on Root Strata. 2013 saw the release of his critically acclaimed third album, Between Two Worlds (Three Lobed Recordings), and the following year Danny self-released, Furniture Music, a collection of his earliest acoustic works spanning back to 2007. His latest full-length, Other States (2016), was released by Geographic North for their excellently-curated Sketch for Winter IV series.
Danny has contributed music to a number of complications including Eight Trails, One Path (Three Lobed), Vol. 5 of the venerable Tompkins Square guitar soli series, Imaginational Anthem, and Geographic North‘s annual Halloween Benefit comp. He is currently at work completing a new full-length and contributed music to collaborative project, both of which are slated for release in early 2021. Stay tuned!
In addition to his solo and collaborative work, Danny also composes music for film. Most recently, he contributed music for the documentary film, The Gospel of Eureka (2018), written and directed by Donal Mosher and Michael Palmieri.
His work can also found on the award-winning documentary, October Country, (also written and directed by Donal Mosher and Mike Palmieri) which has garnered several honors, juried prizes, and awards, including “Best Musical Score” at the renowned Cinema Eye Honors in NYC.
