Danny Carroll

Ambient Instrumental Jazz New Age

Danny Carroll


An F sharp floats gently thru the air…..  the vibrations of energetic E minor triads bounce between your ears….  A sultry D flat major 7th wanders into the rhythm of your heart…

At the age of 6, Danny Carroll’s grandmother gave him a choice of playing piano or accordion. He chose the piano because he did not have the strength to lift an accordion!

And that was the perfect choice, because for many decades we have experienced the magical journeys, songs and otherworldly exploratory soundscapes that Danny creates with the piano, keyboards and music software. Danny’s music lets us enjoy his humorous spirit, his unbounded energy and passion for the keys, and the gentleness of his soul. It soothes, relaxes, enchants and invigorates. Danny’s solo piano work is like a breath of nature. His heartfelt connection to sound is evident in everything he plays and creates.

Danny's label is aptly titled: Sounds of the Heart


You can often hear Danny perform at the “Palm Room” of the Fort Garry Hotel, where he has played for 18 years.
