Daniel Alan David "Danny" Jones (born 12 March 1986) is a British musician who is one of the lead vocalists and guitarists for pop-rock band McFly.
Jones was born and raised in Bolton, Greater Manchester, where his mother runs a hairdressing business. He and his sister Vicky were interested in music from an early age. Jones attended Bury College where he studied for a BTEC National Diploma in music.
Their father walked out on the family when Danny was eighteen and it left a lasting impression on him. Not long after, he co-wrote the song "Don't Know Why" (from Wonderland) with Vicky.
The McFly song "The Ballad of Paul K", which he co-wrote with McFly bandmate Dougie Poynter, whose father also left home, was based on both their experiences. Jones has rarely spoken of his father and only briefly mentioned him in McFly's autobiography.
McFly rose to fame in 2004, partly due to their association with Busted. Jones met Fletcher when he auditioned for the "boy band" V. Fletcher, who was filming the auditions for Island Records, later approached Jones. The two conversed and discovered common interests, leading to a songwriting session between Fletcher, Jones and Busted's James Bourne.
When they finished writing projects for Busted, Fletcher and Jones began writing for their own, then-unnamed band. They temporarily moved into the InterContinental Hotel in London, United Kingdom.
Jones, has co-written all five of McFly's studio albums. He has also written and produced tracks for McFly and other musicians. Jones has also been listed as a producer for McFly's 6th studio album, which has still not been released but will soon be according to the band. Jones also takes the role of lead guitarist in most performances, with Fletcher playing rhythm guitar.
Jones previously dated Miss England 2008 Laura Coleman.
On July 26, 2013, Jones announced he was engaged to model and former Miss England Georgia Horsley. They married on August 02, 2014 in Old Malton, North Yorkshire.
On July 17, 2017 Georgia and Danny announced they were expecting their first child, with the feature in HELLO magazine.
