Billboard: Danny Burns Returns to Folk Roots With 'Waiting on Something to Give': Video Premiere

“Danny Burns is no newcomer to music; The Irish-American troubadour has been working and traveling for some 20 years now and even released an album, briefly, back in 2010. But he considers North Country, coming out Jan. 18 -- previewing here with the video for the track "Waiting on Something to Give" -- as his "first official official release."

"Back then I was experimenting with all different kinds of stuff," says Burns, who was born in Donegal and now resides in Annapolis, Md., after previous stints in New York City, New Orleans and Chicago. "It was more of an R&B/rock kind of thing, not very focused -- and not very satisfying." In contrast, North Country's blend of Celtic, folk, bluegrass and country, which Burns self-produced in Nashville, felt decidedly more comfortable.”
