Guitarist, Composer, Songwriter, Singer, PRS Supported Artist & Official Ambassador for Orange Amps
Hailing from the Midlands, Danny Beardsley has been described as one of the most intuitive and convincing guitarists around. Danny first cut his teeth and plied his craft with Derbyshire Rock band Isolysis before he went on to form Emperor Chung. Danny’s songwriting maintained its infectious quality in Emperor Chung, combining memorable classic rock with progressive touches that truly set the band apart from its contemporaries. In 2015, Danny, along with Isolysis Drummer Dave Wright, created instrumental progressive trio The Parallax Method. Described by Prog Magazine as "Devastatingly contagious", they combine ultra-modern prog style with old school classic rock tones to create genuinely interesting song structures and refreshing melodic overtones.
With appearances at some of the most prestigious festivals including Download, Bloodstock, UK Tech Fest, Hammerfest, HRH Prog, HRH Road Trip to Ibiza, Rock and Blues Festival, Camden Rocks and Macmillan Fest, Danny's musical endeavours have garnered support from the likes of Scuzz TV, Classic Rock Magazine, Prog Magazine, Kerrang, Metal Hammer, Total Guitar, Powerplay and Planet Rock.
Danny released his debut solo album Blood From A Stone in 2019, showcasing his vocal talent for the first time. An acoustic reworking was released in July 2020 and studio album number two is recorded, mixed and mastered and all set for release in 2022.
In 2019, MusicRadar featured Danny as one of the top ten best new guitarist in the world. Danny is also an official ambassador for Orange Amps and a PRS Guitars supported artist.
