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, finger-style guitar and all things minimal, repetitive & hypnotic.
His first solo album, Fountain, was released in 2010 on Root Strata followed up by full-length releases on Students Of Decay, Three Lobed Records, and most recently for Geographic North’s excellently-curated Sketch for Winter cassette series. He has contributed music to several compilations including Eight Trails, One Path (Three Lobed Recordings), Imaginational Anthem Vol. 5 (Tompkins Square), and A Little Night Music: Aural Apparitions from the Geographic North (Geographic North). His most recent release, Sunrise, Looking East, is a continuous 17-minute sonic meditation for Australian imprint, Longform Editions.
In addition to his solo work, Danny also composes music for film. His most recent work can be found on the documentary, The Gospel of Eureka (Film Soundtrack), written and directed by Donal Mosher and Mike Palmieri. His work can also found on their award-winning documentary, October Country, which has garnered several honors, juried prizes, and awards, including “Best Musical Score” from the renowned Cinema Eye Honors in NYC.
Danny has both solo and collaborative projects slated for release in 2021, including his contribution to Field Works latest album, Cedars.
