IN CONVERSATION WITH DANNY JONES
MUSIC BACK TO BASICS

He is one of four members of one of the most successful bands of our generation, and with a creative record that speaks volumes, Danny Jones is becoming a symbol of what music should really be about. From the success with his band McFly, Jones has become a music producer desired by many, he not only wrote, co-wrote and produced some of McFly’s biggest hits – some of which are played on the radio to this date – but worked with One Direction composing and producing their last album together and has influenced several other artists of our times. Danny’s experience and skills have now landed him at the judging panel of The Voice Kids, on ITV, an endeavor he sees as a great platform to showcase and support young talents.

Danny’s passion for music dates from his early years when his mother got him music lessons due to his great and undeniable interest in music. He learned by doing it, spending countless hours practicing and trying out styles and beats. One thing that is clear, is that Danny Jones is not only a skillful writer and musician but one with a soul looking to tell a story. His passion, talent, and skills combined with this dazzling emotional rawness make him and his creations relatable and real, something our generation, and the one after ours, surely crave for.

We had the pleasure of meeting with Danny after his latest trip to LA to talk about music, his role as a judge at The Voice Kids and how this generation of young talents should be supported and taught. We meet with him at the Long & Waterson showroom space in Shoreditch, a beautiful and sophisticated yet relaxed new apartment development in the heart of East London. The set could not be more appropriate for this afternoon of candid and heart-warming chat with Danny.

As soon as we met outside Long & Waterson, Danny was chilled and friendly, shaking my hand and introducing himself – not that he needed any introduction as I have been a fan of his work since I was a teenager – I ask how he is doing and his answer is direct followed by a cheeky laugh, ‘I’m really well, just jet-lagged and hungry. But I am always hungry.’ We head inside the showroom and get him a healthy vegetable quiche from a nearby cafe. Once Danny had finished his ‘lunch’ we head to the grooming room where he straight-way starts a conversation with the team. Friendly, personal, and captivating.

We sit down at the living space and start chatting about his recent trip to Los Angeles, one which Jones describes as “relaxed and fun”. He tells me that he spent the first two weeks simply enjoying the city, eating burgers and drinking beer. He also attended the worldly famous music festival Coachella, seeing some bands and checking out “what the kids out there are listening to.”

Had you been to Coachella before? Never been. And I found it weird to go and have a beer and watch a band. (Laughs) Because you were in a band, is it different being on the other side? It is actually really nice because you usually hear so many bands from behind the stage and it’s just big loud beats, so to go upfront is like ‘oh, this is how we sound’, it’s kinda nice. But I just went there to see what the kids were listening to. It was interesting. When was the last time you were in LA? Two years ago. Hopefully, we’ll be back more. There are some really good vibes there.

I ask Danny if he found the scene in L.A to be much different from the one we see in the U.K, to which he replied; “I feel like maybe people get more excited over there. Maybe your crazy thoughts and dreams are a bit more out there.” Jones feels that in the U.K, artists tend to play with rawness and emotions more than in the U.S, they wish to tell a story and often don’t need to create a super complicated melody or over the top production as they rely on the emotional element in their songs.

“I find British musicians quite passionate and they create music to be personal. I love being moved by music. My idols are all kind of storytellers. Specially Springsteen. I listen to his music and I see him as an actor and I think ‘How does he find inspiration to write all these songs?’. I know that he watches a lot of documentaries and movies or he gets obsessed with something and I think he puts himself in those situations he is watching. He has character and I think, I need to do that. In the band, we sort of had some of those extensions from reality, from experiences we had and we used to chip in when writing a song, because we were in four, so we would bring our own personal experiences to the table.” …keep reading.

[x2]CANDIDS > 2017 > FULL MONTY REHEARSALS, LONDON – FEBRUARY 15

The ITV special will be a tribute to the Full Monty to celebrate the film’s 20th anniversary

MCFLY singer Harry Judd, Towie’s Elliott Wright and more will strip naked as part of a Full Monty tribute show on ITV.

The stars will be joined by dancer Wayne Sleep, Emmerdale’s David Metcalfe actor Matthew Wolfenden and Olympic swimmer Mark Foster after The Sun exclusively revealed that the film’s 20th anniversary will be marked with an ITV special in April.

Pointless presenter Alexander Armstrong will host the show, and it will end with six stars taking their clothes off at the London Palladium.

A source previously said: “The six who do sign up will be whipped into shape before performing their routine at a working men’s club in Sheffield in April.

“They will have to pluck up courage for the big reveal. But ITV are expecting the cast will get into the spirit and won’t be tempted to leave their hats on.”

Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo will prepare the stars for the show, which is supported by charities Movember, Cancer Research, Everyman and Prostate Cancer UK.

The stars were pictured for the first time as they arrived for rehearsals in London today.

The source went on: “As far as the team are concerned, this is a chance to celebrate a classic movie moment and raise awareness for charity.

“They are hoping that will appeal to the celebs they have in their sights.

“If they get the right people, they are certain the show will go down a storm with viewers, and give a real boost to all of the charities now involved.”

The Full Monty, which starred Robert Carlyle as the leader of a motley crew of unlikely strippers, was a box office smash when it was released in 1997.

Despite a budget of under £3million, it made over £200million in ticket sales and was later adapted into a musical in 2000 and a play in 2013.
