Early Youth & Life
On September 4, 1990, Danny Robert Worsnop was born in Beverley, England. His parents are Sharon and Philip, and he was reared by them in the small town of Gilberdyke. He was raised alongside Kelly, his younger sibling.
Danny had a lifelong passion for singing. He used pots and empty crates to make music as a young child. By the age of eight, he had already begun playing instrumental instruments, and he even took violin lessons as a young child.
Danny had no trouble learning different instruments because he was excellent at making music. He learned the nuances of playing the trumpet while taking violin lessons and later found himself performing for his school’s band.
In his teenage years, he began studying the guitar and bass after being influenced by rock and metal music. He originally intended to join the military as a sniper, but when his band’s debut album became a huge hit, he altered his mind and decided to pursue music instead.
Danny Worsnop’s Career
The ensemble “Asking Alexandria” welcomed Danny Worsnop in 2008. In 2009, he and his bandmates created “Stand Up and Scream,” their formal debut album. The record, which was created by Joey Sturgis, was distributed by Victory Records and Sumerian Records.
Although the album didn’t do well in the UK, it performed exceptionally well there. While it appeared on several music charts across the country, Billboard magazine’s list of the “Top Heatseekers” placed it in fourth position.
2011 saw the publication of “Asking Alexandria’s” “Reckless and Relentless” second album.
The album, which was published by “Sumerian Records,” debuted in the top 10 of several music charts in both the US and the UK. It also made an appearance on the “Australian Albums Report,” where it took the thirty-first position.
The group’s third album, “From Death to Destiny,” was published in 2013, and it quickly rose to the top of the list of “Top Hard Rock Albums.” It also did incredibly well in the UK and Australia, making “Asking Alexandria” its most financially successful record.
Danny shockingly informed his followers of the band’s dissociation on January 22, 2015. He claimed that he had made the choice to stop making heavy music after carefully weighing the band’s needs. Denis Stoff later took over as the band’s lead vocalist in lieu of Danny Worsnop.
After leaving “Asking Alexandria,” Danny joined “We Are Harlot,” another ensemble. On March 30, 2015, Danny and his new bandmates published their debut self-titled album, which did well in the US and UK. The record received favorable reviews and sold more than 5,000 copies in the US within a week of its release.
By this time, Danny had begun concentrating on his solo endeavors and his debut solo record. Although he had originally stated that his album would be released in 2011, he had to postpone the release for a number of reasons.
He announced in 2013 that he was collaborating with Jay Ruston and that the record would be distributed by “Sumerian Records.” The record, however, was not released for another three years.
Danny issued an album single in 2016 along with a music video. The song, named “I Got Bones,” was well received by music fans because it featured a nice blend of country music and Worsnop’s vocals.
Danny revealed on his Instagram page on September 26, 2016, that his debut album, which was originally known as “The Prozac Sessions,” will now be known as “The Long Road Home” due to a number of legal concerns. Finally published in February 2017, “The Long Road Home” was well-received by music fans.
