ABOUT CAPTAIN DANGER
CAPTAIN DANGER is here to save the day.
Serving up “a perfect blend of pop, rock and funk with killer vocals and musicality,” CAPTAIN DANGER has a unique but “immediately likable” catalog of classics.
CAPTAIN DANGER “pulls off the perfect pop formula so well it doesn’t feel formulaic at all" (as CMJ had once said).
This powerhouse trio consists of songwriter/singer/ guitarist AARON STEINBERG (at ease in highly flammable 70s polyester) and the fab talents of drummer ROGER "JOOSE" BENFORD (SiR, Shafiq Husayn, Patrick Paige) and bassist/vocalist KEITH EADDY (Macy Gray, Dam-Funk, Jody Watley, Loose Ends).
influences include greats such as Prince, Jimi Hendrix, The Police, The Meters, Motown, The Beatles, Sly Stone and King Crimson. Artists comparisons have included Scary Pockets, Snarky Puppy, Elvis Costello, Curtis Mayfield, The Clash, Holy Ghost!, The Cure, The Steoples, Vulfpeck, Liam Bailey and Talking Heads.
Recently described as “one of the most promising acts this year,” CAPTAIN DANGER “addresses issues such as alienation with hope, joy and humor.”
CAPTAIN DANGER’S new release Love Sweet Love “showcases the band as storytellers with something original to say about the human condition," featuring the “catchy” single “Holly” with its “earworm of a chorus” and its accompanying “memorable” and "fun-filled" music video.
Live highlights include South by Southwest, Sit n' Spin (Comedy Central Stage), Arlene's Grocery's Best Of NY release, SiriusXM, CMJ and performing live on Showtime's The Green Room with Paul Provenza. TV, film and ad licensing includes Billabong, Bravo, Disney, CBS, NBC, MTV, ESPN, NHL, AMC, WE and more. CAPTAIN DANGER'S song "Hope To See Change" also featuring India Carney (The Voice, H.E.R., Billie Eilish) appears in the new documentary Tomorrow's Hope. Composing theme songs for specific productions (Bill Nye The Science Guy, Howard Stern, Andy Dick, FX) is also a favorite activity for CAPTAIN DANGER (check out Captain Danger’s soundtracks website, chemicalmusic.com). Additionally, look out for performances on soundtracks such as Battlefield Hardline, Dawn of War and Limitless (film and also the Emmy-Nominated CBS series), Dredd, Dynasty, My Psychedelic Love Story and more for composer Paul Leonard-Morgan.
Currently, CAPTAIN DANGER is based in Los Angeles - performing, recording, producing and happily making trouble for those who need it the most. Production / collaborating includes the hilarious wunderkind Flula Borg (Pitch Perfect 2, Conan O’Brien, The Suicide Squad), the amazing Olivia Olson (Adventure Time, Phineas & Ferb, Love Actually) and fiery singer/songwriter L.P. (Warner Bros).
