Danielle Cales

Danielle Cales


Each song of mine is an experience someone has gone through because I write what is real to me and the world around me. I observe the emotional realities we all go through in our daily lives then I tell that story through my music.


A skip away from the windy city, Danielle Cales takes up residence in NW Indiana. The daughter of a one time up and coming blues man - Freddy Cales, who met an untimely death before fully realizing his ambition, Danielle carries on a passion for music. One listen and her voice will convince you that the depth heard in her lyrics are genuine soul, entirely unforced. An attentive ear will notice as she crosses the stale barriers of genre and exhibits her courage to be creative in a time of artistic and moral conformity. Danielle challenges herself and her listeners with a musical exploration of humanity reminiscent of singer-songwriters from the 60's and 70's. Only 23 years young Cales exhibits wisdom beyond her years with an ear for melody that will make you think the universe itself must whisper the secrets of harmony to utilize Danielle as an instrument to play its own song.
