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!

    Another amazing job done by Owen!
    Sent him a very rough idea and he quickly turned it into a masterpiece.
    His communication, talent on both piano and guitar, and his amazing vocals really help grasp where the song is going and to give feedback to him.
    The final version that is sent over is beautifully done, and professionally recorded. He is truly superb and I can't thank him enough for all that he has done. Highly recommend!

    Had a non-love song this time for Owen. Right away he understood the concept I was going for, and created amazing lyrics, melody, and turned my demo into a complete song. He just can't be stumped and is able to masterfully create beautiful music.

    Owen has delivered another one, this time debuting his piano skills.
    Still can't believe I have been fortunate to have him work on my songs, and I completely recommend that you give him a try to work on yours. I'm sure you'll be as amazed as I have been.

    2nd time working with Owen, and although he's probably tired of me saying thank you and telling him how amazing he is, I'll keep saying it.
    Truly a wonder to work with. Professional, concise, and strives to make the best song before he signs off on it.

    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 played bass recently on a project I'm producing and he really took the songs to a new level. He's a great musician and you can tell he really cares to give 110% to anything he's involved in. He's also one of the best songwriters I know so I wouldn't hesitate to contact him for lyrics/toplining etc.

    Time and time again Owen has blown my mind with his top notch lyrics. Each song we've worked on together has been better than the next. If you're looking for one of the best untapped talents on this platform look no further, Owen is your guy!

    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.
