Let me introduce myself: singer, songwriter, coffee drinker, over thinker.
Here I am in my 20s, navigating the path to the life I want to live and this is my outlet to share my story, hopefully entertain you, and save memories that one day I will look back and either be super proud of or have a good laugh at myself.
“to want my share, is not a sin.” – P!nk
To give you a little more detail about myself, I am a New Yorker, born and raised. At 18, I moved to Manhattan to attend NYU Tisch School of the Arts to hone my craft and pursue my love for performing. I have written and recorded 3 albums, had songs on Teen Mom, Vanderpump Rules, and a Quaker Oatmeal commercial. I’m about to start the writing process for my fourth album, but we’ll get more into detail about that later.
This blog will change from post to post, I’m the kind of girl who wants to do so many different things, sometimes it can be difficult to focus on completing one thing at a time. I figure a blog is at least one place to write about all of my different projects, ideas, adventures. Life in the mind of Dani. Uh-oh, get ready.
Currently, I’m doing an open mic tour of the north eastern area. I pick a different place 3-5 nights a week, and I lug around my portable-but-still-heavy- for- someone- who- is- 5’2-keyboard. I walk into a different setting each time, with unknown faces and different genres of music, and I perform a set and force myself to not live within the boundaries of being limited by anxiety and being outside of my comfort zone.
Introductions are always like a first date, a little awkward, I mean who actually enjoys describing themselves? Who has actually found the balance between sounding like you’re too full of yourself versus sounding too lame and boring? Not me. So with that said, this first post is just a quick glimpse of who I am, I hope you’ll have fun getting to know me better along the way! Ciao for now!
