Danny Brooks grew up in in rougher area of Toronto. In his early teens he found he had a passion for music, especially the blues and rock 'n' roll. Danny’s been on the road for almost 40 years and for much of that time was addicted to drugs and alcohol that led to incarceration. In April 1987 he entered the Donwood Clinic and shortly thereafter, on August 3, gave his life to Christ and has been clean ever since. Danny performs in Canada and the US, and some of his most heartfelt material is inspired by his experiences. He has a number of CDs: After The Storm (a Juno nomination) and Rough Raw: It’s a Southern Thing; Righteous; Saved: The Northernblues Gospel Allstars (a Juno nomination); Soulsville: Souled Out 'n' Sanctified; Soulsville: Rock This House (Shai Award/Best Blues/Jazz Album 2007).
