Dubbed 'The King of North London Soul,' Danny Toeman is a dynamic force in the realm of UK Funk and Soul. Backed by his 'Love Explosion band’, Danny’s performances are a lively celebration of feel-good funky soul, aided by an undeniable charisma and extraordinary vocal talents.


His musical journey ignited when music programmers discovered an early song online, landing him a spot on Abercrombie & Fitch's in-store playlists worldwide while still a student. This marked the beginning of a career that has seen his music featured on a global scale, including a notable appearance on Saturday Night Live (NBC).


A relentless performer, Danny toured extensively across the UK and continental Europe. He has captivated sold-out audiences at headline shows in renowned venues such as Pizza Express Jazz Club and 100 Club. The pinnacle of his career thus far came in 2019, when he earned the primary support act slot for Kool and the Gang at the o2 Arena in London, performing before 10,000 spectators.


In mid-2020, LRK Records approached Danny to release 'She's Got Something About Her' on vinyl, creating a sensation in the European Soul Scene. The demand was unparalleled, selling out within three months and earning radio plays from BBC 6 Music's Craig Charles. Veteran BBC DJ Robert Elms even declared it his "new favourite song."


Danny's ascent continued in 2022, receiving his first spin on BBC Radio 2 for 'Shake the Blues Outta Your Shoes.' His remarkable talent secured him the opening act position for the legendary Diana Ross at one of her rare UK performances. This would directly lead to him performing with Lionel Richie the following year.


Most recently, releases 'When the Lights Go Down' climbed to No.11 in the Official UK Soul Chart, and ‘Feel My Soul’ landed a spot on a coveted Spotify Editorial Playlist, while 2023 also saw Danny perform in Canada for the first time, invited to play by the long running NXNE music festival. Beginning 2024 with a sold out New Years Eve concert in London, Danny is looking forward to bringing his music to even more audiences around the world.


'Some artists say their music has 'soul', but then you get a different kind of artist. The kind you listen to and in an instant you realise... they have soul. London-based musician Danny Toeman channels the golden era of the genre with 'neo-vintage' style; simultaneously drawing comparisons to greats like James Brown alongside contemporary hits such as Eli 'Paperboy' Reed. Hailed as 'the new generation of UK soul', it's a sound that can never be taught; one that you're either born for doing... or you're not. Sadly, 90% of us regular humans, are not. It just means that we have to do our utmost to marinate our ears in the rich, funkalicious vocal acrobatics that so organically flow from the heart of people like this. The positive energy and lyrics of Danny Toeman's music makes him a must for any feel-good playlist.' - Kat Jackman, Huffington Post
