Where do you see the roots of your music?

My music is deeply rooted in Jazz. My father constantly had a jazz record on when I was a kid, and though at the time I didn't fully understand it, the music itself felt like home.

What are your plans for 2013?

What is your current project?

I am currently working on starting up a campaign via in order to raise funds for my very first Christian album. My first 2 albums (Debut self titled and my You're Enough CD) both had some hints of my Christian background in them, with just a couple of tracks that centered around God.

It seems people are conditioned to only receive/digest music when its fed a certain way. I can't give you everything all at once.. Its like a relationship in that way... I have to keep you wanting more.. We as a people seem to be ignoring our hearts, and intuition far too often.

Her passionate music appeared with the song "See the light" and it captured my attention. Danielle got a fully loaded portfolio that indulges your senses. 

It is a true pleasure for getting some time with Danielle for a free spoken interview!

What was/is your main motivation for composing your music?

The short answer is impulse. When I first started writing music regularly, there was no plan and I never consciously said, I'm going to write music. I was writing a ton of bad breakup induced poetry. I had just graduated from Emerson College for Creative Writing, but had put my guitar down...
