Marie Danielle is an indie folk singer-songwriter from Harrisburg, PA who now calls the road home after a few years each in NYC and LA. Her dark and clever songwriting connects to audiences with its naked honesty about love, loss and addiction. The spare and unique arrangement of her music gives depth and a twist to these tales of longing. Within a year of her first live show, Marie was touring throughout the US and Europe. Before her debut record was even released, her song ‘One of My Kind’ was featured on an episode of Showtime’s series ‘Billions.’
Marie had 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. Simone and Marie started a cross country collaboration when he recognized the magic of her track ‘Tinseltown’.
Soon after, Marie and her friend 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 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’, a travelling song to which they lend their swagger. Hustler, which has been called ‘Intoxicating’ (AXS.com) and ‘Spectacular’ (Ear to The Ground Music) also includes a cinematic cover of Conor Oberst’s ‘White Shoes’.
Hustler got people paying attention. Marie is currently recording her second album at Dial Back Sound with Matt Patton (Drive-By Truckers, Dexateens). She will release a single 'New Myth' from a forthcoming record as she continues to tour. She will head back down the east coast in March and will be adding festival dates for summer and fall. That extensive US tour will be followed by European dates, all to be announced soon.
