Danny Burns – Hurricane – EP
Critically-acclaimed singer Danny Burns is bringing the star-power with his brand new EP, Hurricane. Available now via Bonfire Music Group, the project features an all-star lineup of guest artists including Sarah Jarosz, Aubrie Sellers, Dan Tyminski, Jerry Douglas, Steve Earle, Tim O'Brien and Sam Bush. The Americana record includes six new recordings, each showcasing the Irish native’s unique style. Upon its release, it hit No. 1 on Amazon's Contemporary Folk sales chart. Hurricane is available for download and streaming now.
The EP includes the lead single “Many Moons Ago” featuring recent Grammy winner Sarah Jarosz. The edgy tune was cleverly written by Burns, inspired by stories told a couple generations ago when Native Americans and Irish citizens came together to help each other through tough times. The collection also has the latest radio single, “Trouble” which features collaborators Aubrie Sellers, Dan Tyminski and Jerry Douglas. The recording showcases a more upbeat side, while continuing its climb up the Americana charts, where it recently made its debut. Hurricane has also already started creating waves on the Roots Music Report chart, currently sitting at No. 3 on this week's Americana Country Albums Chart and also No. 3 on the Country Albums Chart.
Upon the release of new music, Danny Burns is also excited to start announcing upcoming shows. One which was just confirmed is the Kansas City Irish Fest. Taking place in Missouri in September, fans can expect to hear the singer/songwriter perform several of his songs, including tracks from the brand new EP. This is a key chance to check out Burns’ Irish roots taking center stage.
