Washington D.C. native, Berklee College of Music graduate, and 2012-13 Strathmore Artist in Residence Owen Danoff was born with song in his blood. Son of the renounced singer/songwriter, Bill Danoff, Owen has developed his own musical identity. Mack Bailey is a nationally acclaimed singer/songwriter who is gaining an ever-larger audience with his strong, expressive classically trained tenor voice, with an impressive range and pure clean quality. He writes sensitive original songs that express the deepest of human emotion, social conscience, and lighthearted fun. In concerts, he touches the listener’s heart and tickles their funny bone.

 

Tenor Mack Bailey was hailed, by no less an authority than Glenn Yarbrough, as “the next great singer in folk music.”

 

I have great respect for Bill as a songwriter, He has written some of my favorite songs and one of my most successful songs, “Take Me Home Country Roads.” ~ John Denver. Bill Danoff has been extraordinarily successful on the international stage. He has been singing and writing songs since the late 1960s when he performed and co-wrote songs with John Denver. When Bill and his then partner, Taffy Nivert, invited Denver to help them finish writing a song, little did anyone know that the song would soar to the top of the charts. “Take Me Home Country Roads” catapulted John Denver into national prominence. Bill added Jon Carroll and Margot Chapman to form the Starland Vocal Band, which quickly gained national fame with the monster hit, “Afternoon Delight.
