Danny and the Champions of the World is a folk-rock, rock, soul band that was formed in London during the summer of 2007 by Danny George Wilson. The band's name is an allusion to the story "Danny, the Champion of the World" by Roald Dahl. The band was formed following the dissolution of Grand Drive in which Danny performed with his brother Julian Wilson. They recorded originally as an impromptu demo session at a farm within the grounds of the Truck Festival. The demo and overall success of the recorded sound prompted Danny to form Danny & the Champions of the World and record their first self-titled album on Loose Music in 2008.

Critics and fans noted a distinct departure from the music of Grand Drive; instead making references to a more Alt Country sound. The band recorded their second album "Streets of Our Time" in 2010. The band released the album on Loose Records. Danny & The Champions of the World recorded the album whilst on tour with The Magic Numbers and The Drive By Truckers'.

Streets of Our Time was met with much critical acclaim and marked an end to Wilson’s folk infused leanings. In February 2011 Danny George Wilson signed a worldwide publishing/ production deal with Southern Crossroads Music and went into the studio to record Hearts & Arrows. The album was mixed by Ted Hutt at his King Size Studios based in Los Angeles, California, USA. Danny George Wilson recorded ‘Tougher Than The Rest’ for a Limited Edition Bruce Springsteen tribute 7” EP for Record Store Day, alongside fellow contributors The Magic Numbers, Willie Nile and Billy Franks. On 3 February 2016 Danny and the Champions of the World dominated the inaugural UK Americana Awards taking home the gongs for UK Artist of the year, UK Album of the year for What Kind of Love and UK Song of the year for Clear Water.
