Danny Gager birth name Daniel-Jason Gager was born on the 6th March 1986. Daniel has spent his life so far living in the North West of London. At a young age Daniel realised his versatility, when he and others recognised his talents in rapping, MCing and even singing. Daniel’s versatility came from the different genres of music that he listens to, such as Hip-Hop, Rock, Metal, and Soul & R&B etc. Daniel doesn’t believe in using one of his talents and ignoring the rest. So he chooses to incorporate all of them together.
As a songwriter, who inspires you to write?
It’s not only about ‘who’ inspires me, but more ‘what’ inspires me to write. The things that my friends and I have experienced tend to influence my writing such as relationships, friendships, success and hardships.
But I admire many songwriters such as Tupac Shakur, Lupe Fiasco, The Dream, Donell Jones and Neyo.
Who do you like now who raps, sings and MCs?
At the moment I’m listening to The Dream, he’s such an amazing songwriter. I’m also listening to a lot of Donell Jones, Marques Houston, Lil’ Wayne, Jay-Z & Fabulous.
Who do you consider to be the greatest in music and why?
I’ll say Tupac Shakur. Reason being is simply because he’s a remarkable songwriter. He’s very expressive with his music and you can feel his passion in every song.
How would you like fans family and friends to remember you when you retire from music?
Being very musical, versatile with natural talent and a genuine love for music.
