About Danny Saber
Los Angeles resident Danny Saber is a veritable studio wizard whose multi-faceted skills as a musician, writer, producer, engineer, remixer and dj have seen him work with a long and varied list of major artists including the likes of David Bowie, Sheryl Crow, Marilyn Manson, U2, The Rolling Stones, Public Enemy, Willie Nelson, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper, and Madonna. His stint in the 90's as a member of seminal British outfit Black Grape showcased his myriad abilities and jump-started his reputation as a “go-to” music man. Saber has also made a name for himself in the film arena with his captivating and creative soundtrack and score work.
Saber fostered a love of funk, heavy metal and hard rock while growing up, and first hit the L.A. Club scene as a member of Issa Joone
It was funk/hip-hop group proper grounds, the first band to be signed to maverick records. That gave `Saber his first shot a producing an album for a major label
He signed to emi publishing and relocated to the uk, in 1993 saber joined forces with the legendary Shaun Ryder, former front man of the Happy Mondays, the mega Manchester phenomenon that led the late 80s/early 90s rave and club movement. The stellar result was the critically acclaimed Black Grape album "It’s Great When You’re Straight…Yeah" which debuted at #1 in the UK charts and spawned a slew of hit singles including “In The Name Of The Father.” Saber co-wrote a number of tracks and produced the album in addition to playing guitar, bass, keyboards, and organ. He then went on to sport even more hats on the band’s second album, "Stupid, Stupid, Stupid", with multi-instrumental credits including the sitar alongside writing, producing, arranging, and engineering nods.
In the meantime, his work with other artists continued to burgeon. He worked with the late INXS star Michael Hutchence, producing and co-writing his solo album; the pair played together at the infamous viper room in LA just days before Hutchence’s untimely death. Saber went on to produce and perform on the rolling stones’ bridges to babylon album. In the late 90s he waved his magic wand and turned out a string of high-profile remixes including Garbage’s “Stupid Girl,” Marilyn Manson’s “The Beautiful People,” U2’s “Staring At The Sun” and David Bowie’s “Little Wonder.”
He then turned his considerable talent to film and tv composing. His music drove commercials for Mcdonald’s, Taco Bell, and Coors Beer (an inspired usage of his remix of Tom Jones’ 70s smash “She’s A Lady.”). Saber’s gift for bridging the gap between soundtrack and score saw him work on a wide range of studio and independent films including Moulin Rouge!, The Limey, Waist Deep, The Jackal, Alpha Dog, Blade II, S.W.A.T., The Love Guru, Go!, Played, and many more.
Danny Saber is as eclectic and accomplished as they get. Ensconced in his state of the art studio, he will write up a storm, record every instrument himself, engineer and produce away, and abracadabra – emerge with a polished and perfected work bearing his unique stamp. He is as dedicated as ever to utilizing his broad-minded, cutting-edge approach to organically creating new music. We can’t wait to hear what he conjures up next.
