Inspired at the age of nine, it didn't take long before Danielle’s charisma and love for music earned her a Southern draw…performing in AL, GA, FL, SC, TN and TX. Remaining grounded…she has impressed all those around her as she has transformed into a soulful female artist!

It began in 1996 when the young girl was spotted singing at a local family restaurant. She was soon recruited as an opening act at the infamous Ham Jam in Middleburg, FL. Drawing in crowds with her high-energy performance and powerful vocals…the Ham Jam became a launching pad to her young career. With a magnetic personality and band by her side – Danielle captivated all ages…as she performed with a long list of well-known recording artist such as Leanne Womack, Charlie Daniels, Molly Hatchet, Tim McGraw, Loretta Lynn, Tracey Lawrence, Neal McCoy, Diamond Rio, Vince Gill, Steve Warner, Mila Mason, Sissy Houston and The Apollo Band, Pam Tillis, Sammy Kershaw, and many more.

She was soon honored with the praises of Tammy Wynette and JD Sumner who showcased her on the Grand Ole’ Opry at the age of ten. With a poise beyond her years...Danielle performed a passionate rendition of “Amazing Grace” acapella on national television – receiving a standing ovation by the house audience.

As fate lead the way – fans continued to seek out the young singer. She traveled with Neal McCoy, sang the National Anthem on Monday Night Football, was recognized by NBC’s Maury Show as one of “The World’s Most Talented Kids” and chosen by CBS to record with Martina McBride in the made for television special “Country Music’s Biggest Party”. At the age of 16 – life was emulating her destiny!

With the support of her family, Danielle had spent years juggling her music with the demands of school. Upon her graduation in May of 2006 – this determined and polished young woman packed her bags and followed her heart all the way to Nashville, TN! After only three weeks, she had landed a regular singing gig in the historical Printer’s Ally.

Since Danielle's move to Music City, she has learned to play the guitar, and has dedicated herself to crafting her artistry through her songwriting. She now collaborates regularly with award winning writers and artists. In February of 2011, she was chosen to be a contestant on CMT networks "CMT's Next Superstar" where she went on to win third place as well as the title of the last female standing. With the exposure from the show on her side, Danielle has earned a national fan base and plans to showcase for record labels in the very near future!
