About Danielle Lewis
Hailing from New Quay on the picturesque West coast, Welsh singer/songwriter Danielle Lewis now resides in Wales’s vibrant capital and cultural hub of Cardiff. There’s a real, soulful purity to Danielle’s voice; she puts everything into her music, live and on record.
Her recent single ‘A Woman Like You’, an ode to her grandmother, was playlisted by BBC Radio Wales on release and more recently caught the attention of Spotify’s editors, gaining her a spot on their ‘Your Coffee Break’ playlist.
2018’s ‘Live Forever’ EP saw Danielle catching the attention of Super Furry Animals’ Cian Ciaran who remixed the title track and released it on his own Strangetown Recordings.
Last year Danielle was invited out to US by The House of Songs after being spotted at the Great Escape Festival in 2016. Out in the states Danielle took part in a writing residency in Austin, TX with other upcoming folk musicians from around the world, followed by showcasing her work at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, MO.
Danielle Lewis’ new single ‘Life of Worth’ from her forthcoming album delves into a dramatic new territory suspended between her conscious and subconscious. Her ethereal electro-folk is guided by her saintly soundscape of voice. Her new dynamic and engaging direction is not only brutally honest, but also intricately fragile and precious.
