Danae is a pop singer/songwriter based in New York City. Her electro-pop goodness–much like chocolate, but for your ears–transcends the pop genre with varied production styles and nuanced meaning-filled lyrics.
‘Direction’, Danae’s debut single, came out the same week as Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ but the music lovers of HypeMachine sent the song to #39 on the Popular Charts. The next week, ‘Actualize’ hit SoundCloud and reached #10 on the HypeMachine Charts prior to it’s commercial release on May 6, 2016.
She followed up the release of “Direction” with her singles “Actualized” and “Gold In the Dirt” in late 2016 and early 2017. “Gold In The Dirt” has received a number of positive reviews since its release. The songs positive message about overcoming obstacles and pushing through has resonated with listeners.
Her single “Prove” was released in Summer 2017 in Europe and peaked at number 11 on one of the European Indie Charts.
Danae’s voice and writing have been shaped by her time spent living in Russia, Texas, and the Washington, DC area. After moving to Nashville in 2013, she collaborated with music producer Sarin Kuruvilla to cultivate the trending pop singer/songwriter genre in Music City. From there, she was able to connect with Los Angeles-based producer Phil Danyew who has toured with Foster the People, as well as Secret Road producer AG.
