You're caught red-handed on the official Danny Ramirez site! ’
Entertaining the world with acoustic songs from the darker parts of the mind Dutch morbid folk singer-songwriter Danny Ramirez has been referred to as ‘Evil Elvis’, though he’s as much influenced by Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash, while his lyrics draw inspiration from Macabre, Necrophagia and Slayer as well as Insane Clown Posse. All influences combined result in Danny’s unique nylon-string morbid folk outsider music style. Live performances usually take place in the Leiden area (halfway the Dutch westcoast), but Danny also played in Germany, France and Finland. He did gigs with amongst others Amigo The Devil, Bob Wayne, Joe Buck Yourself (Hank III bassplayer) and The Goddamn Gallows.
