"GYPSY ROAD/ TALES FROM A TRAVELER" will deliver a prolific storytelling narrative from years on the road and is chock full of character observation, cultivated arrangements and organic music accompaniments.
Coloring her diverse musical palette from Danielle's formative years were: Jazz standards, Blues, Funk-Soul, Classic rock, 70s Melodies, 80s New Wave and Punk, Grunge, Jam Bands, 90s Female Singer/Songwriters, Country, Classical and even Broadway showtunes. Her Long Island, NY childhood set the course for her artistry early on. As a kid Danielle grew up immersed in studio and performing platforms. Once when accompanying her musician/producer father while he was opening for Fleetwood Mac - she found herself backstage next to Christie McVie's piano thinking "this is what I'm going to do someday."
Performing in Colorado Rocky Mountain lodges, singing Broadway, Country, and Pop tunes started the professional circuit for Danielle's stagelife. When Songwriting entered her radar she formed an original band and began playing all over the Denver/Boulder region anywhere she could. After releasing her first album she expanded her shows nationally on self-booked tours and continued to hone her show presence and musicality. She has since performed in festivals and venues across the country and found a new home in the South, in the artsy-vibrant music-mecca of Austin, TX.
