Following in the path of Jack Antonoff, Blake Mills and Ricky Reed, Danny Ross is an indie rock frontman turned mad scientist pop producer mining new sounds for the TikTok generation with classic songwriting craft. Ross produced the latest hit singles for #1 Billboard indie band Wakey! Wakey! and American Idol star Peach Martine. He’s making innovative records with alternative R&B phenom Janelle Kroll, L.A. art-rocker G.Smith, the slow-burning fire Kylie Odetta and neo-soul songstress Tatiana Owens. He remixed dance pop queen Julietta and crafted ten tracks for future icon Simone, the 16-year old prodigy dubbed the next Phoebe Bridgers.
Ross co-scored the new Hulu series ‘Everyone Is Doing Great’ and is also one-half of indie project Cheap Synths, featured in a 2020 Apple commercial and signed to Rough Trade. They somehow released a new song every single week in 2020, nearly breaking a world record.
Outside of his own musical achievements, Ross is advocating for the greater music industry in his column for Forbes, which has over a million readers and was created to inspire and educate up-and-coming artists on the new music business. He also stars in a new YouTube series ‘Meet The New Boss’ based on the popular Forbes column.
Ross also founded the Anti Social Producers Club, an underground NYC producers collective whose members have worked with artists like Beyonce, Bon Iver, John Legend and Shawn Mendes. ASPC is now partnered with BMI, NYU and the Berklee College of Music. Its mission is to become the go-to industry hub for New York producers to help bring the scene back to prominence.
