Welcome back Dani! What have you been up to since the release of “Diamond Love”?
Since the release of Diamond love, I’ve been writing and recording a ton of new music, and planning out my next performances for the rest of 2019.
I’m also working with a couple really amazing artists and DJs! There are some songs I’m featured on, that I’m beyond excited about and can’t wait to announce!
Congratulations on the release of “Chase You”! We love it. Was this your first time working with producer Scott Storch? What was the creation process like?
Thank you! I was given the opportunity to work with Scott about 2 years ago, where he also introduced me to the insanely talented Joelle James. It was my first time in a real, professional studio setting and I was beyond nervous. But Scott and Joelle made the process really easy and fun, and “Chase You” was the product. The whole experience and outcome from it, is really what launched my career. I’m extremely grateful for all of it!
Can you dive into some details about the lyrics in “Chase You”? What emotions did you channel when creating this track?
When writing this track, I really wanted to channel the feeling of self empowerment and self worth. The main “tag line” that was the inspiration for it was: Why would I chase you, if I’m the catch? Joelle and I took that and ran with it, because there is so much behind that one line. The emotions range from being hurt and upset, to feeling empowered and bad-ass. Once we realize our own worth, we can start cutting off the toxic people around us who don’t see that same quality. And it’s all up from there
What are your main aspirations as an artist going forward?
Going forward, I hope to not only release more music and collabs, but I really would like to use my music as a platform for self love and empowerment, as well as being an advocate for mental health. Music has been such an important part of my life, and has helped me through every high and low I’ve been through. And I strive for my music to be able to have that same effect for others.
What’s one of the biggest lessons you’ve learned as an artist over time?
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned through my experiences in the industry, is that no one will work harder for you than yourself. I know this seems obvious, but as a singer and a writer... I really only knew how to sing and write music, but there are SO many different things that go into the process. So I took every opportunity I could to learn more and more about the “behind the scenes” things, like music production and the business/law side of music. The more you can learn and understand about all aspects of your career, the more control and progress you can have. The second I stopped blindly depending on everyone around me, and started asking questions instead, I was able to grow and do so much more in my career.
