WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“This is a name you'll be hearing a lot of.”
“Bound to get stuck in your mind instantly.”
GET IN HER EARS
“An utterly infectious slice of electro pop.”
Dani Sylvia is an artist who captures how unreasonably awful it is to be human, without making you want to throw things at the radio. Her soulful voice resonates with the sound of raw heartbreak embedded in a world of expansive, anthemic misery-pop. Music for the outsider, to dance and scream-cry to. She is a poignant artist of true individualism, painful self-awareness and awkward, witty realism.
Dani trained at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Her distinctive and arresting lyrics ripped straight from her heart, won her the attention of BASCA (Ivors), who awarded her ‘Best Songwriter’ at The Unsigned Music Awards. Her unique take on alternative pop has caught the attention of BBC Introducing, gaining features in multiple regions. She has won the hearts of a deeply loyal fanbase by bringing her high-octane and ethereal world to life on stages, touring across the UK. In July 2019, Dani performed to 8,000 people at Kew Gardens for ‘Kew the Music’ (Lewis Capaldi, Craig David, Nina Nesbit, Jooles Holland) after headlining a sold out show in Camden. Dani’s latest live performance in March 2020 was her second headline show at a sold-out Omeara.
Each of her releases and performances has received fantastic feedback from some of the biggest names and platforms in the business from Spotify, Apple Music and the BBC, to legendary songwriter and producer Linda Perry (Pink, Christina Aguilera etc).
Dani’s ambitious project ‘Catharsix’ (six EPs in six months) was met with great critical and popular acclaim, with an outpouring of messages of love and appreciation from fans from every corner of the world. The project received features on official Spotify playlists including New Music Friday (Worldwide), New Music Friday (UK), New Pop Revolution, New Pop U.K, The Pop List, Fresh & Chill, Easy and Apple Music’s Easy Like Sunday Morning and New Music Daily. Her independently released singles have been played consistently on BBC Radio Introducing London with eight of her songs receiving “Track of the Week'' between 2018 and 2020.
Dani is about to embark on her exciting project ‘1.11’; an album which consists of a series of searing singles and raw visuals that capture what it means to be a human in this crazy/beautiful world. 2021 will see Dani welcoming more and more weary souls into her ever-expanding realm of chaotic existential dread, laced with a pinch of relentless optimism and undying hope that when we lose the life we’d planned - a better one awaits.
