Marie Danielle is an indie folk singer-songwriter based in LA influenced by storytellers. Her songs, which have been likened to a wide variety of artists from First Aid Kit to Mazzy Star to Lucinda Williams, bear that out. She brings a unique voice to what has become a mainstream genre.
Marie played her songs in private until a brush with death in a violent domestic relationship lent her the courage to reach out to an artist she greatly admires, Simone Felice. Marie sent her demos to this founding member of the internationally acclaimed Catskill Mountain based Felice Brothers, whose seminal self-titled album remains one of the most influential works of this century's indie folk revival. The two started touring and writing together.
Soon after, Marie and collaborator Christian Wargo, of the folk band Fleet Foxes, left LA for Woodstock, NY to begin recording with Simone and his production partner David Baron. What started as an EP soon grew into a full length record – Hustler, featuring Felice, Wargo and even the original lineup of The Felice Brothers who back Marie up for the first single Soldier. Hustler, which has been called ‘Intoxicating’ (AXS.com) and ‘Spectacular’ (Ear to The Ground Music), also includes One of My Kind recently featured on an episode of Showtime’s ‘Billions’ and a cover of Conor Oberst’s White Shoes.
Marie followed the German release (Tonetoaster Records) of Hustler with a tour there in early 2016 and is playing dates in select cities across the US this summer and fall. Hustler is now available worldwide.
