New York based ‘Alternative Soul’ singer, songwriter, and actress DANIELLE MARTIN is no stranger to the mic. In her short career, she has developed a dedicated following as a result of her powerful, yet sultry vocals, and thought-provoking lyrics. Writing her first song at just 12 years old, she quickly gained a knack for creating melodies and imaginative storytelling. Seven years later, Danielle was introduced by a college friend, (MC Enigma of trilingual hip hop collective Negros Americanos) to DJ IRS, with whom she would later go on to collaborate. Setting up shop in IRS’s kitchen pantry, these two would end up recording early demo’s for several songs that later appeared on her debut EP.
In November 2017, DANIELLE released her debut EP Wanderlust produced by Sonatic Music Group and Marques A. Durieux. The lead single "The One", released earlier that May with accompanying music video, has been described as, "vulnerable and transparent”, as well as, "sweet and soulful". The song captures perfectly the feelings of inadequacy and heartbreak that come with being in a unstable relationship. Danielle has gone on to gain notable press from sites such as singersroom.com, funkadelicstudios.com, soultracks.com, and britznbeatz.co.uk. Most recently, Danielle performed as the opening act for the legendary R&B group BoyzIIMen at NJ bergenPac. Other notable performances include: Rockwood Music Hall, Bronxnet TV, Garden State Plaza Mall, Gramercy Theatre, Harlem’s Summer On The Hudson, Arlene’s Grocery, and Silvana’s.
This year alone, DANIELLE has appeared on three separate new projects, collaborating with a whole slew of new artists. The new single “Lights” by indie soul singer and guitarist Jonny Parks, “Blue Lagoon” by Brooklyn based rock band Crimshaw on their debut album “Monsters”, and lastly her first foray into house music, “Brave”, which is Danielle’s latest single in collaboration with Producer/DJ Moon Rocket and remixed by Italian Afro House DJ and producer Moblack. With her unique vocal stylings and heartfelt lyrics, DANIELLE is definitely a performer to watch.
