I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all…See More

"To the Heavens" by Dano



Chords | C | E7 | F | C G |

 

I've called you here today, to listen

to the silence that's between us

I'm asking you to stay, and hear me

without my words

 

And we could gently, close our eyes to violence

Reach out for hands and raise them to the heavens

To the heavens, to the…

Moving on to a strange place,

Let in a little bit of violet rays,

Be da, daya boo da do da dum

Ba be ya da do da dum



A formula discovered...

rethink everything



Taken in by the Palisades, and the light...

Hello Dano, I would like to point you to a new blog post I made, as it was made specifically for the purpose of featuring your site. I am grateful to you for making available this resource, and so I thought I would make whatever small effort I could to try and spread the word for you. Here's the link:

Dear Dano, thank you for your beautiful music. I suggest you to place( compress ) your music also in Ogg format, the quality will be better.
Ogg video and audio files now play without plugins in Firefox, Google Chrome, and other browsers, so the player you have seen on my site is a default browser player :) - just use HTML5 and tag.
Ogg Vorbis is free audio format not restricted by patens and sounds better than PM3, if It is compress down to a smaller size than MP3.
Visit www.playogg.org or http://www.vorbis.com/
I hope next time it will be possible download your music from danosongs.com directly in Ogg format. :)
Best regards
Install Firefox - if you use Firefox just click on the right button of mouse and download :)

Hello Dano. Thanks for some great sounds! I've used them in a couple of motorsport films I've just uploaded, and they really make the movie come alive. Hope you enjoy seeing how your music is used in different ways. Thanks for being generous enough to share these tracks - much appreciated. Grumpy Git, UK.

Hey Dano, Yeap I am the member of the warrior forum. I actually wanted to contact you to figure out a way to thank you for your music, which as you've seen, is now being used as the video promotional material. I am still pretty new to this and let me figure out if there is a way to send you private message.

Hey Dano. Just wanted to give you the link of a little PSA we did for a non-profit here in New Orleans in which we used your music. They have just launched their Gulfsouth Youth Biodiesel Project whereby they turn used cooking oil (and boy do we have a lot of that down here with our fried foods) into biodiesel fuel. The link on Youtube is here:

Hugs,
