If you’re a lover of piano-based alternative pop with a little EDM thrown in for good measure, then you’re going to adore Dani Robert.
Dani is a 25-year-old singer-songwriter who resides in Toronto, Canada. The talented songstress has been honing her craft since she was little, learning to play the piano at the age of five and writing her own songs by the time she was seven.
In fact, Dani’s gift for songwriting has played an important part in her life past writing. Working as a music therapist, she has been able to help others to express themselves through music. Speaking about her work, Dani said: “The opportunity to use my songwriting as a way to not only express myself, my thoughts, ideas, my purpose, but to do that for others is undeniably one of the greatest gifts I have been given.”
Now, Dani continues to share her gift with the world in the form of her original music. She released her debut single ‘Clouds’ at the end of last month, which epitomises her unique blend of sounds. Produced by Kyngs, Mic Tee (AMAG/ Cash Money/ Rich Gang), and Bryan ‘BC’ Cockett, the track is uplifting with a hint of summery vibes. Dani’s vocals glide effortlessly over the EDM beat, creating a captivating offering. Since its release, the track has already garnered over 100,000 streams on Spotify and earned a spot on New Music Friday playlists in 10 countries.
A few days ago, Dani unveiled the music video for ‘Clouds’ which tells the story of a livelong friendship, where they two gradually develop feelings for each other. Directed by Gord Poon and Long Truong, we also see shots of Dani performing the song whilst a dancer adds some contemporary moves to the track. Speaking of the creative process, Dani explains, “‘Clouds’ demonstrates the challenge of speaking what’s in your heart, exploring vulnerability, the subjectivity of human connection, love, and time.”
