Biography

“A Little Redemption fulfils all the promise of its gestation and more. Entirely crowd funded, it slips effortlessly between smoky soul, folk-pop and heart-wrenching alt-country, all in a rich voice somewhere between Ms Harris and Alison Krauss.” - Andy Fyfe, Q Magazine, 4 stars (June 2013)

“Just Terrific” - Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

From a young age, Danni was soaking up American folk, country and rock n roll music from her Grandmother’s record collection in her small home town of Bedford, UK. When she inherited her Uncle Heathcliff’s 1962 Burns London Shortscale Jazz guitar (rumoured to have belonged to Billy Fury!) aged 16, all those influences came pouring back out in the form of her own original material and has been flowing ever since.

Danni met Producer Chris Donohue (The Civil Wars, Elvis Costello, Robert Plant) in London in 2011 through a mutual friend whilst Chris was in the UK playing bass with Emmylou Harris as one of her Red Dirt Boys. The pair hit it off and in December 2012, Danni flew to Nashville to record her debut album with Chris at the helm and some of Nashville’s finest musicians.

A Little Redemption was released July 2013 on Transmission Recordings. Credits on the album include the legendary Al Perkins on Dobro (Bob Dylan, Gram Parsons, The Rolling Stones) and Steve Fishell on Pedal Steel (Albert Lee, Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt).
