Your Feature is Oakland Native Danielle Helena: Tunes of the 70's, 80's, and 90's graced my ears throughout my youth, and the voices of all the greats sang me to sleep at night. The moment I learned to drive, any car I was inside of alone became my personal rehearsal studio. I always loved to sing. I always loved to perform. What I didn't love was vulnerability. In time, I found comfort in being exposed, and the Danielle Helena #ArtistsOnly journey began.
All my life I wrote my feelings in journals, and now I've worked up the strength to sing about them on stages around the world. My music comes from an authentic space, and I wish to share it in an honest way. The music is real and comes from my heart, and I do what I love because I can't not do it. So sing with me… sway with me...enjoy the music; enjoy the love; and spread it always…
