DANAE's electro-pop goodness--much like chocolate, but for your ears--transcends the pop genre with varied production styles and nuanced meaning-filled lyrics.DANAE’s voice and writing have been shaped by her time spent living in Russia, Austin, and the Washington, DC area. After moving to Nashville in 2013, she collaborated with music producer Sarin Kuruvilla to cultivate the trending pop singer/songwriter genre in Music City. From there, she was able to connect with Los Angeles-based producer Phil Danyew who has toured with Foster the People, as well as Secret Road producer AG. Platinum songwriter Jesiah Dzwonek--writer of Echosmith’s hit “Cool Kids”--also came to Nashville to write with DANAE and Kuruvilla. "DANAE is a talented artist with a bright future. It was a joy writing with her,” reflected Jesiah.
'Direction', DANAE's debut single hit #39 on the Popular Charts and the next week, 'Actualize' hit SoundCloud and reached #10 on the HypeMachine Charts.
