Here are some of the nice things that people have been saying about 'Stay True':

"a gold standard album for UK Americana" ★★★★ - Q Magazine

"ragged but righteous country soul"  - Uncut

"with Stay True Danny and his wonderful band have fused blues, country and even gospel to provide a truly magnificent album" 10/10  - AmericanaUK

"sounds as if it was made in Stax Studios by a collective of Nashville’s finest Country musicians" "This is Danny and the Champions fourth album and unquestionably their finest in a long lineage that dates back to Grand Drive’s debut in 1997" - No Depression

‘Stay True’ is the fourth album from Danny & The Champions Of The World. It's also Danny George Wilson’s eleventh album which includes six long players from the much loved Grand Drive plus a solo outing (as Danny George Wilson) entitled ‘Famous Mad Mile’. Danny has been touring the world and making critically acclaimed records for nearly 20 years now, the first Grand Drive release was on Loose back in 1997. ‘Stay True’ was recorded this year over five days at North London’s Reservoir Studios with Champs bass player Chris Clarke (ex Rockingbirds) and Danny at the helm.
