Danny Smoke is known for his amazing guitar playing ability and music production skills. It is, however, not this gifted musician’s only talent, as his first single, JOU LIPPE, has just been released and on everyone’s lips.
JOU LIPPE, a team effort by Danny, Johan Vorster and Christoph Kotzé, is an upbeat pop track that will encourage you to sing and dance along. According to Danny, it is a cheeky track about feelings that everyone experiences, but never wants to talk about. “It is about a guy who thinks he has seen, tasted and experienced everything. The woman the song is about, however, surprises him – specifically with her lips – and he just can’t get enough of her,” the singer shares. “I like to see people having a good time and this single will make audiences dance, sing, enjoy themselves and long for someone they haven’t met yet.”
A music video is also planned for later this year, but he does not want to give too much away at this stage other than the fact that it will inspire listeners not to take life so serious, to take chances and to make the most of the memories they have.
JOU LIPPE is also the first official release off his debut album, SWAELTJIES, that is set to be released soon.
When the versatile artist is not busy singing or playing guitar, he is also a music producer and feels blessed to have been a part of the music industry for more than twenty years. “I come from a musical family and music has always been a part of my life. I started playing guitar at a young age and have produced music for various successful local artists. It has always been my dream to write, sing and produce my own album,” he shares.
According to Danny, he draws inspiration for his lyrics from his own experiences and enjoys every second he gets on stage. Because he is also a music producer, he listens to a wide variety of music and admires One Republic’s Ryan Tedder for his versatility. The artist also has great respect for those who are brave enough to choose a career in music. He believes that it is important to discover your own voice and to embrace it, because music is not a competition.
Danny Smoke approaches each task he takes on with great passion and precision; characteristics that are clearly evident in his debut single and album. The modern and honest interpretation of the songs on his album and his unique voice are the perfect combination for an end product that will not only cause a stir in the South African music industry, but will also secure him a permanent place in the hearts of music lovers across the country.
