Danni recently returned from making her second album in Nashville,TN. Due for release October 23rd 2015, ‘Mockingbird Lane’ features many members of the stellar cast from her critically acclaimed debut album ‘A Little Redemption’.
From a young age, Danni Nicholls 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 1963 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 have now made two albums together with some of Nashville’s finest musicians featuring on the tracks.
With performances guaranteed to melt your heart into the soles of your cowboy boots, her passionate delivery, powerful, velvet voice and charmingly engaging between-song banter compel you to fall under her spell.
