We had the good fortune of connecting with Danii and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Danii, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
The most important lesson my career as an artist has taught me is to be brave and to always take a chance on myself. Everything I create and choose to share has my heart in it, it can be a very vulnerable process. I like to write music that is authentic to myself and my personal experiences. Every time I step on the stage, release a new song, or post a video I have to be fearless and confident in my abilities. I never know what reaction or response I will get from an audience. As a performing artist, I share my work publicly and I have to be prepared to be subjected to judgment. This is not always an easy process, but I can’t control what others are thinking or saying. Although I typically receive a good response from my audience, I still make sure to keep myself grounded in genuine love and passion for my art. I am extremely grateful for my gift and I love to share it with the world.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
What sets me apart from others is my positivity and determination. I am always able to see the positive in even the most difficult situations and I am very intentional about achieving my goals. I am most proud of my growth as a songwriter, singer, dancer, and therapist. Getting where I am today professionally was not easy, but it was definitely worth all of the challenges I’ve had to overcome. I’d say one of the biggest challenges I’ve overcome is my self doubt. I have learned to fully embrace myself and my abilities with undeniable confidence. I have always been consistent with my craft, but there were times where my lack of confidence would not allow me to be as disciplined as I needed to be. I am very proud of my level of focus and discipline now. It has really positioned me to receive the vision and purpose God has for my life. I am excited to announce my new single “Better” will be released and streaming on all major platforms in April! I have also started recording my debut EP and I am now accepting clients for my songwriting services. Helping others bring their creative visions to life has been very exciting and fulfilling for me.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
This is a great question! Some of the places I would take her to eat are Southern Gourmet Kitchen, Pacific Table, and KISS. I’d probably take her hiking at Katy Trail, Arbor Hills, or White Rock Lake. Some fun things we could do is go to Dallas Black Canvas Open mic, Andretti’s, Truck Yard, or the new Fowling Warehouse!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate my first shoutout to God, my faith sustains me, it is my foundation. I would also like to dedicate a shoutout to all of my listeners, followers, and supporters. I am extremely grateful for those who speak life into me and those who believe in my gift.
