dannycopemusic If you ever come across someone playing piano who looks a bit like Spain’s Andrés Iniesta, and sounds a bit like Ólafur Arnalds doing an impression of Jóhann Jóhannsson, it’ll probably be Danny Cope. Born and bred just outside of London and now living in Yorkshire in the UK, Danny is a composer/producer/multi-instrumentalist who’s been writing and recording songs for a couple of decades now, but you’re much more likely to have heard his music than his name. He’s rarely set any of his songs free into the world as an artist himself, but Danny has written plenty of music that’s been used on TV and in Film. You may have heard his music behind coverage of the Olympics, The Australian Open or The Masters, or behind prime-time TV dramas or major ad campaigns because Danny’s music is used on Radio and TV across the globe on an almost daily basis. If you have heard it, it’s possible you didn’t really notice, and that’s fine with Danny. He’s never been one for the limelight. He started his musical career as a bass player; at the back of the stage where no-one was really looking, and where he could just enjoy playing without having to draw attention to himself. That’s where he’s happiest; making music, enjoying it as it appears, and then watching from a distance to see where it lands. He says that he loves writing and recording music that people can ‘use’ from day to day as they get from A to B, and he’ll keep writing and producing even if no-one is listening. It’s just what he does.
