Livin Left 

Danielle’s magnetic personality shines through her music.

The Birmingham based singer - songwriter, has spent that last couple of years crafting the art of performance with the personal delivery of her original music and cover songs playing locally and throughout the southeast.  Although she writes and performs solo, she also plays with fellow musician, Sean Heninger.  They are both lefties and are known for writing acoustic songs and building on their sounds with fuller instrumentation.  Including a fuller band when needed.  The folk/blues/alternative sound that is Livin Left is full of surprising creative elements - as both artists bring a fresh perspective to songwriting and performing. 

Danielle's unique sound stems from a wide range of artistic influences and experiences stemming from her Appalachian Mountain roots - she grew up in Kentucky and her grandfather was a Bluegrass musician. 

Her songwriting has a sense of fluidity and fierceness that infuses a number of genres including folk, rock, alternative blues with a hint of outlaw country in what she describes as something of her own.  Danielle has a refreshing vision for creating songs and sharing them with a wide variety of audiences.

“I often sing with my eyes closed, because music takes me to a place of refuge, of peace, of bliss and the feeling of that moment is indescribable. I realized I wanted to share that experience and inspire people to find that place for themselves.”

Pulling from the passion of both the painful and peaceful times of her life, Danielle’s writing lures you into an electrifying place while the instruments sweep through the songs creating a unique experience with each one.  Some tracks are driven by seductive tones overlapped with gritty sounds to create a bluesy vibe.  While others are simply Danielle and her lefty acoustic guitar stripped down to her bare vocals and haunting lyrics that resemble a lot of the folk and soft rock influence in her early years.  

“I had no idea when I set out on this adventure what I would encounter.  As time went on I started peeling back layers of myself - of my lyrics, to eliminate excess and to expose the truth.  Somewhere along the way I began to play and perform precisely how I always wanted - eyes and heart wide open.”

When asked about her creative process, she says, “There is no method to the madness, truly, you never know where I will start or begin, I just grasp an idea and dive in fully to find the perfect lyrical, melodic and instrumental blend with no expectations in mind - it is freeing and allows unpredictable revelations to emerge… Usually, I get a melody and some lyrics in my mind and let my crew hear - and then the fuller approach takes over - arranging and developing the bones of the song.  It is a fun process, one that is different each time, for each song and subject..."

One thing is certain, Danielle’s music transcends age - her songs resonate with a variety of listeners, and each one leaves you intrigued and wanting more.

Danielle is currently in the studio recording her album to be released in 2017.
