“Brilliantly catchy...” - Think Country
Emerging country-pop artist Danny McMahon captivates listeners with his poignant new EP Boys Cry Too, out now via Puzzle Maker Records.
Opening track Everything sets the tone for the EP instantly; soaring with emotion as McMahon’s country-tinged vocal takes centre stage over the beautifully infectious musicality. Critically acclaimed single When I See You stirs the soul immediately as McMahon’s intricate guitar picking twinkles over warm piano chords and haunting harmonies, sounding akin to the likes of Lady Antebellum or Keith Urban. Talking about the single, McMahon explains “it was written by a songwriter called Dan Evans who wrote the song about his grandfather who had recently passed away. I remember getting a message from him saying he’d just played it to his family and that they were all in tears, at that point I realised we’d achieved the relevant emotional connection we were looking for.” Throughout the EP, McMahon creates a sound that is honest, personal and rich with a storytelling charm. He blends authentic country sounds with modern pop melodies, creating something that will appeal to fans of each genre equally.
Danny McMahon has written commercially for Paramount Songwriting and within the UK country music scene for a number of years, but had never seen himself as a performing artist. After attending country2country Festival in London in March 2017, the experience saw him begin to write lyrics he could connect with personally and, as a result, became an artist in his own right. Since then, McMahon has supported the likes of Dylan Schneider and Charlie Worsham, as well as receiving praise from Lyric Magazine, Think Country and BBC Introducing to name a few. With his latest single When I See You debuting at Number 1 in the UK iTunes Country Charts, McMahon hopes to inspire listeners further with his new EP and his infectious blend of mainstream country.
