Danni has been singing professionally since the age of thirteen. She is a Conservatorium graduate with sixteen years of musical training. Danni is experienced in all styles of music but is most passionate about jazz, pop, rock, R&B, country and musical theatre.
Her voice extends over three octaves and covers a wide variety of musical genres. What makes her unique is her ability to sing classical soprano repertoire and then follow it with modern songs belting top Gs and above with a strength belying her small frame.
Her musical experiences are quite eclectic and over the years she has been hired to sing everything including standards, country, contemporary, pop, easy jazz, rock, opera, gospel, choral, R&B, soul, swing, folk, dance music, house, traditional spirituals, operetta, world music, and children’s' pop.
Danni has a huge repertoire and an enormous collection of sheet music and backing tracks. With years of professional experience performing to audiences of all ages at varied events and venues, she is adept and creating set lists and is always ready to go. She has often sung a full evening of music with only a few hours notice.
Danni also enjoys writing her own music and lyrics and arranging and composing. She released her debut original album 'Sunlight and Shadows' at the age of fifteen.
An experienced band member Danni not only sings but has also played keys and percussion and is currently learning to play the guitar. She has worked as a session musician, sung back-up, performed in children’s' music groups, and provided incidental music for plays.

Highlights include playing Audrey in 'Little Shop of Horrors', Sandy in 'Grease', Miss Dorothy in 'Thoroughly Modern Millie', Taylor McKessie in 'High School Musical' and Glinda in 'The Wiz'.
