Danger Mouse Biography

The brilliant music producer Brian Joseph Burton, who goes by the stage name Danger Mouse, was born on July 29, 1977, in White Plains, New York USA. The prolific artist that's one-half of Broken Bells and Gnarls Barkley, has produced for the likes of The Black Keys, Gorillaz and Beck.

In July 2010 was released an unparalleled album titled "Dark Night Of The Soul" officially credited to Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse. The disc was as a de facto tribute to Mark Linkous, the talented yet overlooked artist who performed under the pseudonym Sparklehorse and who committed suicide on March 6, 2010. The record, which peaked at #24 on The Billboard 200 Albums chart, saw the pair joined by a remarkable number of guests including The Flaming Lips, Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals, Julian Casablancas, Iggy Pop, David Lynch, Nina Persson of The Cardigans, Suzanne Vega among others.

Some five years in the making, the conception of Danger Mouse's collaborative project "Rome" involved Italian composer + arranger Daniele Luppi. United in their shared passion for classic Italian film music, Burton and Luppi created a record like no other: recording took place in Rome's cavernous Forum Studios formerly Ortophonic Studios, founded by the great Ennio Morricone, employing vintage equipment and making every effort to replicate the recording practices of the '60s and '70s golden age, recording live to tape, with no electronics, computers or 21st-century effects. Crucial to the completion of "Rome" has been the enlistment of two lead vocalists Jack White and Norah Jones. The lead-off single, "Two Against One", which features performance by White who recorded his vocal part in Nashville, hit #20 on The Alternative Songs chart while "Rome" peaked at #11 on The Billboard 200 and at #15 on the Top Canadian Albums chart.
