Danny Wood



Danny Wood

Danny Wood is a Kid no longer. 

For one thing, he's matured; for another, his debut solo album, Second Face (Empire Musicwerks / BMG) released in early 2003, was a soulful mix of R&B, pop, and alternative-tinged tunes that any serious musician would be glad to claim as their own (the album released one single stateside that charted on Billboard and another that climbed to the Top 30 singles chart in Germany). 
 
But getting a proper hearing hasn't been easy when your past pedigree includes having been part of that late 80's / 90's phenomenon, New Kids On The Block; it's been more of a Stumbling Block. 
 
Despite NKOTB's achievements (record-breaking live show attendance and sales; superstardom on a global scale and not to mention over 100 million albums sold around the world), the 'manufactured boy band' image continues to linger around the former members, which is a source of frustration for the talented Wood. "I will never complain about the ride and what I learned from it, but musically it definitely wasn't what I wanted to be doing," he says of that time. 
 
Danny's sophmore solo release is entitled "Coming Home" (Damage Records / Essential Media Group). The acoustic album features (16) new songs both written and produced by Danny himself. 
 
This was an album Danny worked on, while filming a reality tv show for MTV Networks called "Totally Boyband" in the U.K. Danny and three other former boyband members formed the super group "Upper Street", and seen the show get some of the highest ratings in network history. The group released "The One" in fall 2006 to both radio and retail. 
 
 
Solo albums include Room Full Of Smoke / Room Full Of Smoke 2 / Second Face (Empire / BMG) / OFD / Coming Home (Alone & Acoustic)
