Their full band shows in Nashville created such a buzz that other musicians began to appear at the back of the room to check out what all the fuss was about. In that town, it’s always a sign that there’s something real hot happening.

At the heart of The Danberrys is the Tennessee-born couple of Ben DeBerry and Dorothy Daniel - a meant-to-be-together pairing from East Nashville.

Since teaming up, they had already caused pulses to race and hearts to flutter with their rock-solid duo performances.

Drawing deep from the traditions of bluegrass, old-time country, blues, and funk/soul, the song-writing and delivery is powered by raw emotion, great vocal harmonies, and dynamic musicianship.

The couple’s musical magic springs from a relationship that started when they were just teenagers. They dated in high school, and eventually went their separate ways - until fate played its hand one day in Cookeville, Tenn. In their years apart, Dorothy had created a sound for herself that inspired Ben, and soon, they re-connected and began gaining attention for all the right reasons.

Dorothy, a devotee of soul and blues music offered an interesting pairing for Ben’s love of bluegrass, rock and country and they found middle ground - their common interest in folk music.

Their first record, Company Store, was released in 2011 and won the People’s Choice Independent Music Award for Best EP, securing them a prized slot at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Spurred on by that success, in 2013, their follow-up album, The Danberrys, won them two additional Independent Music Award nominations for Best Americana Album and Best Alt. Country Song.

The 2016-issued, Give & Receive, created a huge amount of excitement when it received its worldwide release, attracting glowing praise from the critics and seriously important exposure from all the best radio shows.

“Wonderful,” said Bob Harris when he played them on his BBC Radio 2 show. “The sweetest harmonies you ever heard this side of The Everly Brothers,” wrote top reviewer David Innes in R2 magazine.
