The origin of Alberta-born, alternative/indie artist Danielle Dayton’s soulful voice and songwriting savvy is atypical. The tap dancer turned singer-songwriter has a unique relationship with music, rhythm and story. Her experiences as a dancer have shaped the style and groove of the music she creates, securing accolades from Alan Cross, DOMINIONATED and The Northern Light Folk Club. Her 2017 EP “Run” received an Edmonton Music Award nomination and her following singles “Spider Blues” and “Lady Luck” set in motion two Canadian tours from Vancouver Island to Toronto. Most recently, “Lady Luck” landed a placement and feature in the new Documentary “Prairie Sound: Portrait of a Music Producer.”
The young artist weaves vivid stories into her songs, accented by her deeply dark vocal timbre and soaring melodies. Her sound is akin to Elle King and Brandi Carlille, who happen to be her two music heroes.
Danielle’s latest single “Home to You,” released in March 2021, reflects on her experience in the midst of the Covid Pandemic. It is a beautifully epic and heart-wrenching ballad that provides a moment of escape and reminds us to go a little easier on ourselves.
