Owen Danoff on SoundBetter

I would love to help you write a song, add vocals and bass to your track, or all of the above! I'm an award-winning songwriter and write for myself and other artists. My main genres are pop, folk, and singer/songwriter - with experience with other genres too. I was on NBC's The Voice and recently played bass and guitar in an Off-Broadway musical

My goal and passion in life is to make music that is meaningful to the people who hear it. I've been playing music and writing songs for myself since I was a teenager, and am a graduate of Berklee College of Music. My influences range across multiple genre and time periods, but some artists and writers that especially stand out to me are Paul Simon, Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie), and Ed Sheeran.

As a songwriter, I have experience in writing for all kinds of projects - from writing for touring country and pop artists (Charles Esten of ABC's Nashville, Sean Grandillo, Anthony Ortiz), to helping people with no songwriting experience express themselves through music. I'm also a performing singer/songwriter and have won awards including the American Songwriter Lyric Writing Contest and the Bernard/Ebb Songwriting Competition.

As a vocalist, I have lots of experiencing both performing and singing on sessions and demos. I was invited to be on season 10 of NBC's The Voice, where I reached the top 12 on Adam Levine's team.

As an instrumentalist, I've played with artists and bands spanning multiple genres - from pop band Running Lights, to singer/songwriter Liz Longley, to country/americana icon Emmylou Harris. Most recently, I played bass and guitar in the Off-Broadway musical Only Human, which starred Gary Busey.

I would love to hear more about your project!

    I had no idea what to expect with my first go around on SoundBetter, and Owen far exceeded what I was thinking would be done and sent back to me. Owen was very quick to respond, always kept me up to date, sent samples to listen to, and then topped it off with an amazing demo of the whole song. Almost don't want to speak too highly of him to make sure he still has time for me, but he was utterly amazing for my project, and I highly recommend him.

    Owen wrote a beautiful song for my wife's birthday. He's so easy to work with and incredibly talented. He really goes the extra mile to make the song as good as it can be. The final product exceeded my expectations.
