From Danny's email to us:
"Hello, my name is Danny Brooks and my wife and music partner Lil Miss Debi are constantly touring and are now promoting our latest CD ‘This World Is Not Your Friend’ which has been well received by reviewers and DJ’s. (see reviews and quotes ) Originally from Toronto Canada we now make Llano Texas our home. We play Southern Soul, with a mix of blues/soul/Americana/mountain and gospel. I play assorted guitars (6)/slide/cigar-box/stomp-tambo-board/harp-rack and Debi sings with me and plays cajon/percussion.
We show up to perform on every gig and play like each gig is our last. We love playing our music and we love our audience!"
