ABOUT

  •  I was born Daniel James O'Connor III in 1969. Most people call me Dan-O without even thinking about it and that's cool with me
  • My dad influenced me to start studying guitar, singing, recording and writing songs at the age of 13. I began acting in high school plays then too
  • Then I went to the Hartford Conservatory and The Hartt School where I graduated with a degree in music business and jazz guitar
  • In the early 2000s I began experimenting with making electronic instrumental music using MIDI and various kinds of sequencing software
  • In 2008 I started DanoSongs Royalty Free Music as a place to post all the music I was making that I had no idea what to do with
  • Now you can hear music from DanoSongs in thousands of films, YouTube videos, games, apps, websites, commercials, podcasts and other media
  • My few notable composing clients include Disney, Harvard University and IBM. But mostly I appreciate all the non-profits that use my music
  • I still perform live in the Connecticut and New York area with my acoustic roots band Blackthorn Grove. We play allot of fun dance covers.
  • In 2015 I released an acoustic singer-songwriter album called the "The Other Shore" on Acoustic Seed records
  • I'm a life-long actor and I studied at H.B. Studios in New York City. I have appeared in the films "Subject to Retaliation", "Ovelia and Gregoria",  "Zedic and the Crimson Born" and many more indie and student productions. Click here to see my IMDb page.
  • Music is fun but I love my 2 daughters and 2 sons more. My daughter Emma Soleil is a better singer-songwriter than me!
  • Not all of my tracks are on Danosongs for licensing but are still available for listening through streaming and download services
  • My music is also available on YouTube, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and every major music service. Search danosongs or your favorite song name
  • I also release electronic music under the names Graycraft92 and Dan Conxovr. My favorite thing to do is dance to EDM
  • I do my best to live by Buddhist principals, I support the charity Buddhist Global Relief and I am a vegetarian.
