Born and raised in Dallas, Texas - multi-instrumentalist Danny Bonilla is on a mission to create the ultimate feel-good music by embracing every crevice of his multidimensional life. On edge to continue creating music that deviates away from the average, typical and mundane, Danny Bonilla released two standout singles “Dance With Me” in 2018, followed by “Breathe” in 2020. His latest EP, “Rather Be Alone” provides a fuller introduction into the kaleidoscopic mind of an artist with a disco-tinged indie heart but genre-fluid blood supply. Bonilla’s music compiles an influence that blends the full sonic sound of stadium bands a la Queen with the smooth and creamy melodies of soul with nods to the likes of Stevie Wonder and wrapped in the avant-garde yet catchily playful aesthetics of Prince. An entrancing intersection of dreamy indie-pop and soulful alternative r&b - Bonilla’s symphonic synths, harmonized vocals, and textured compositions travel a sonic journey that transcends thought and moves through an experience of jaunty emotion. Combined with an inimitable stage presence, his project and music create a textured safe space for fully vibrant self-expression.
