Born and raised in New York City, Danny Matos is an Emcee, Spoken Word Artist, Poet, and personal trainer. He has always had an interest in words, hip hop, and poetry, and he began performing in the Fall of 2012. Since then, he has performed and featured at various venues and schools throughout New York and it’s surrounding areas.
Danny brings sincerity and transparency to both the written word and the stage in an effort to either touch those that find a piece of them and their voice within him, or to inspire those harboring a dream inside of themselves. His topics encompass all elements of the human experience. Danny believes words and expression connect people faster than modern transportation, give us all a purpose bigger than ourselves, and foster one of humanity’s most precious needs – a sense of genuine connection to the mirror, each other, and the world at large.
He is also:
Winner of the 2013 Poetry Idol competition
Co-Winner of The Inspired Word’s Slam Master Jam 2013
2014 Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe Grand Slam Finalist
