Danny Kuperberg also writes: Songs About Now
Topical / political Songs About Now were arranged and recorded in a period of two weeks in July 2008, and over three weeks in December 2009.
They demonstrate a variety of production techniques which over the years have proved helpful for developing professional and amateur producers and performers.
All songs composed, instruments performed and tracks recorded by Danny Kuperberg, except:
Lennie Breslaw (UK bebop legend): drums on ‘Billionaire Blues’ and ‘Beyond The Moon’
Jeff Mindlin: guitar on ‘The Zealot’
Edwin Din: comedy vocal on ‘Duck and Dive’
Danny Kuperberg is the antidote to pop fakery, dance routines and soul-less karaoke talent shows. A contrast to the plastic pop mainstream that has increasingly infected music culture. Its become a race to the bottom both in terms of standardised music production techniques as well as exploitative music videos.
There was a time when music meant everything. Not anymore. Danny is for paying your dues, gigging hard and crucially enjoying it. Not ‘living the (phantom) dream.’
Whether surrounded by famous names everyone would’ve heard of at Spaceward Studios, Matrix, Audio Garage, a seven year collaboration with legendary Camden promoter Zaid Joseph or Dublin Castle’s Bugbear Promotions, Danny has been there and done that.
Not just me, but so so many creative people are in it for the music. And not the hype.
