Biography

Robin Danar is a modern version of what the music industry once was. Robin comes from a time when contributions by a producer were much more than what they often are today—when musician/arranger/producers had names such as Tom Dowd, Leon Russell and Al Kooper. He applies this old school artisty and sensibility to new music and technology. Robin understands the landscape and it appears remarkably in all of his work. He has plied his trade worldwide, sharing his talents as a musician, recording and mixing engineer, and producer with scores of artists.

HISTORY:
Robin began in the studios of New York City engineering records for mentors such as Steve Lillywhite, Phil Ramone, Gary Katz and Russ Titelman with artists like Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Donald Fagen, Material and Chaka Khan. At the same time, Robin was doing live sound and recording at CBGB’s in its prime with bands ranging from Blondie, the Ramones, Patti Smith and Television through the Dead Boys and The New York Dolls. For over a decade while mixing front of house sound internationally for acts including Laurie Anderson, Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, The B-52’s, The Church, The Blue Nile and Cyndi Lauper, Robin was always finding new artists, developing their careers and producing their albums. He also continued producing live performance recordings and broadcasts. Recent projects include albums with Judith Owen and Abba Roland as well as live recordings with Macy Gray, Five for Fighting and Robert Bradley’s Blackwater Surprise. He was also involved in recording Bonnie Raitt and Los Lobos for the Wim Wenders film “A Soul of a Man”, part of the PBS series “Martin Scorcese Presents The Blues”.

    I didn't know this guy, he's a producer, not a usual performing / recording artist. His record is excellent, with lots of well known artists as guests.
