DAANI is a surprise one, two musical power punch that gently grazes you with the most alluring right hook. With influences ranging from Stevie Wonder to Carmen MacRae, combined with the 90’s power combo of Celine and Mariah, rounded off with modern day sensibilities akin to Sia and Jessie Ware, she has created her own distinctive musical melange. Her sound is a refreshing mix of understated pop with a subtle intensity, revealing colorful lyrics that span sadness to humor, strength to vulnerability while always being inspired from a strong sense of self that desires to experience more.
“At the heart of everything I do or say or create, I want authenticity to be at the heart of it. With all forms of social media, it can be so easy to slip into a state of self-questioning because you think you should be more, do more, look more, say more; and it all stems from people not being comfortable enough to share their true selves. I want people to feel like we could have a conversation and hang out together instead of looking at some mysterious/over sexualized photo and A)see though it, or B) feel a disconnection. There’s so much hardship in the world and one of the few, pure things we have, for free, is genuine human interaction, and I really value that. In music, in relationships, in the energy we put out into the world."
