Danny Shipley

Danny Shipley is a 23 year old Christian Contemporary musician. He does shows in the greater Cleveland area every weekend, and he loves playing music.

Danny has been playing guitar for the past 10 years and does not plan on stopping any time soon. He owns a total of 6 guitars and uses them for different styles and influences in music such as Jazz, Rock, Blues, Folk, and Country.

Danny writes all of his own music and has collaborated with many musicians in his musically talented (but often overlooked) city of Cleveland, Ohio.

His band changes members almost every gig, but always has lots of dynamic with the changes.

Pilot EP was released in 2014. This fall, he is hoping to release another EP along with a music video, and plans to do a mini tour in Illinois. He plans to always be learning new things, uplifting lives, and sharing his love and passion for music in this wild journey.

Guitar, and I know the basics of playing drums...

10. If you could dabble in another genre of music, what would it be?

Starting....Nobody cares about you when you are just starting off.

To make it in the music scene, you have to have more then just a drive to be famous. You have to love music and be passionate, when all eyes are on you at one point...Others will catch on and see that you are in it more then just for the fame, but you are a true musician.
