"A pop singer by trade, and roots songwriter written across his soul, Doran Danoff preaches his gospel from country to blues, with a voice recalling muses like David Gray, and even Jeff Buckley at times."
- Deli Magazine
“Nashville singer/songwriter Doran Danoff has that stuff. The ‘good at everything’ stuff, the ‘hard to pigeonhole stuff, the stuff that sends you into sweaty fevers. That stuff. Fusing blues chords, tight AF soul grooves and plenty of rock and roll stank, Danoff has crafted a brand new full-length that will undoubtedly force your jaw line to relax and your smile to reach from ear to ear. Leadoff single So Bad has the potential to catapult him into the same arena as Benjamin Booker, St. Paul & The Broken Bones and The Arcs.” – SlyVinyl 2018
Singer, keyboardist, songwriter and composer DORAN DANOFF is an emerging indie soul & rock artist from Los Angeles, CA with a piano based sound that fuses soul, rock, jazz and folk in his original pop music.

Doran's brand new full length album "King of Crown City" is now available on Urbivor Records with limited edition orange vinyl and CDs for sale. In 2018 the single "So Bad" was featured on the Fox show "Lucifer." 2017 saw the single "Winning" in the feature film "Lego: Ninjago" (Warner Bros.) as well as the single "So Bad" which appears in an episode of the FX show "You're The Worst." The modern soul-funk tracks are the first two singles off of the new LP "King of Crown City."
